How to Create Waves on a Glass Coffee Table
What You Need
- Glass coffee table
- Rubber mallet
- Old towel and kitchen cloth
- Spread the old towel and kitchen cloth over the table. This will avoid direct contact of the mallet with the table and prevent unwanted spills and damage.
- Gently tap the rubber mallet over the fabric-covered table in descending and ascending vertical pattern, alternating while creating ripples on the table. Do not go too hard or else the glass would break.
- It is a good idea to test the pattern first on some washing up liquid on a piece of glass.
- Keep it regular and pause between each tap. If you tap too fast, the pattern won’t look uniform.
- You can use a variety of lengths and styles when tapping the mallet. Experiment by changing the depth of taps, the amount of force and the amount of time between pauses.
- You will be able to create different types of waves, such as concentric circles, straight ripples, or bumpy waves. It is important to practice your technique before attempting a more intricate pattern.
- Once you have perfected your pattern, use a damp cloth to wipe away any excess liquid and the pattern should settle.
Creating waves on a glass coffee table is a fun and creative way to spruce up your home! It’s best to start with an old towel and kitchen cloth to help protect the table and then use a rubber mallet to tap out your desired design. Experiment with different lengths, styles and depths to create unique wave patterns.
