I love the mercury glass pumpkins I keep seeing as I look for glam halloween decor. Like these:

I also found Chez Fifi blog showing the steps of using silver leaf for a mercury glass-like look. This I love. I'm thinking of taking my clear glass pumpkin that came from target many years ago and using some copper leaf, making my own take on the mercury glass pumpkin. More like these:
My only concern is that I just painted one of my terracotta pumpkins a really deep rich copper and I don't want the two to look too similar.
