Step 1: All the Ingredients

Production of these light-reflective glasses is quite simple all you will need is a pair of glasses and clear light-reflective paint or spray paint(this can be purchased at paint stores or online). 

Step 2: Test the Material

In order to make sure the spray paint or paint you've purchased goes on clear and does not ruin your pair of glasses, test your paint on material other then your glasses and wait for it to dry.  

Step 3: Get to It!

If the paint went on clear, now apply it to your glasses.  If you would like it just on the lenses or just on the frame, tape off the desired area.

Step 4: Go Photobombing!

You can now walk around at night time without fear of showing up in press photos, you celebrity, you.
