About Mercury Glass

Many people ask Valerie, "Is it really mercury?" The answer is, it is real glass without the mercury! Our antique Mercury Glass look is achieved by a special six-step process—and no mercury.

Here's how we do it:

1. Starting with a piece of clear glass, we apply a layer of silver base paint.

2. Next, the painted glass pieces are placed into a vacuum-plating machine, where the paint becomes very shiny, almost mirror-like.

3. After this, we hand-apply a special solution onto the glass, creating the antiqued effect.

4. Once the glass has the proper level of antiquing (not too much, but enough to let the light through), each piece is fully rinsed to stop any further antiquing. Note: no two pieces allow the same amount of light through because each piece is individually antiqued.

5. Now the piece is ready for color! Each piece is hand spray painted, matching the Pantone hue chosen by Valerie.

6. Finally, if the glass is going to be used outdoors, we apply a UV coating treatment to help keep the color fresh, even after exposure to the sun.

Poor Quality Valerie, Valerie - what did you do here? These are NOTHING like your other quality items. These are so flimsy - the bottoms, where batteries are fell out of all of them. Had to get my glue gun out night before I was giving as gifts. These feel and look like cheap plastic. I was very embarrassed this year giving these. Please DON'T ever make these again or have them made somewhere else. Geezze - what a shame. 12-30-13
Very sorry I ordered thes!!! Very bad purchase, most wouldn't light, some have paint chipped, no way will I gift these. So had to go out today 12-23-13 and find gifts to replace these. So done with Valeries items!!!! 12-23-13
Once Again Once again a Valerie Christmas decoration that was broken and faulty. It happened on several items last year too. Back it goes. Don't know that I will order Valerie Christmas again, too cheap and undependable. 12-15-13
2nd set not as good as first set I bought I gave a glowing review on this product last month, so I ordered again, but this time I wasn't pleased with it but kept it anyway. I could only give 3 angels as gifts. The battery compartment of the blue angel was loose when I went to open the compartment. I barely touched it and the bottom came out and I could see the wiring of inside. There was a green paint spot on the glass arms of the green angel. My first green angel did not have paint on the glass. If I hadn't needed to send out presents right away, I would have returned this 2nd batch, but as it was, I sent 3 as gifts and kept the other two for myself since they weren't in gift worthy shape. So far, 1 friend received it and responded that she loved it. I hope the other 2 friends will like it. I now feel this is a case where you take your chances with this item. You might get lucky and get all 5 that are good like I did first time, or maybe you get a batch where not all are up to par. 12-05-13
It's ok I received these Angels and was a little disappointed. I thought the Angels would blink or change colors or something but none of them do that. The lights are not that bright nor is the paint. Parts of the paint is not even which takes away from the look. Wish it was just a little better quality. 11-18-13
I love these Angels. I bought these to give as gifts. After reading the reviews and wanted to make sure they all worked. They do! And yes, some have a tiny bit of paint missing & the lights are differently spaced on each Angel. But I think they are lovely and have chosen two for myself . I love that they have a timer on them and I did not find it difficult to put the batteries in. If you love Angels & bright and shiny objects, you will be pleased! 11-18-13
Very Misleading Product I thought that Mercury Glass was glass and not hard plastic. Does Valerie know the difference. They are nice but why would you say it is glass and it is not. I have ordered glass things from Valerie before and they were glass. I guess I don't understand. I guess I will think about when it says glass products I should not order it. 11-17-13
NOT GLASS!! Where is the glass????CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP... GOING BACK. 11-16-13
The Angel is Pretty - Paint Not so Much I agree with some of the other reviews that these are kind of a disappointment. Valerie puts her name on some nice items, but these are not of good quality. The style & shape of the Angel is very pretty (which is why I gave it 2 stars), but the paint on the skirt that is supposed to glow when the light is on is missing in many spots so that you can see the wiring inside. I don't want to send them back because I like the "Angel" & the return shipping is just too expensive. Since I can paint & have worked with "glass" in the past, I'm going to try to repair them & give them as gifts, as planned. But for the price - I shouldn't have to "repair" them so that I can give them as a gift. 11-16-13
Very Disappointed The display on tv looked great, but the description of the item is not exactly correct. The tops of the angels are glass but the bottom portion is plastic.....looked really cheap. Disappointed so I'm sending back. 11-16-13
Poor quality/one angel arrived with broken wing I was hugely disappointed in these angels, first one I opened had a broken wing and the paint was very spotty, ugly when not lit due to the poor paint job, I would never dream of giving one of these as a gift! Going back! 11-15-13
