Introduction: Color Your Glass Jar!
Great for ever and anything you can think of!
Step 1: Ingredients
Food coloring of your choice
I used a pickle jar but this works amazing with mason jars as well.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees
Step 2: Mix in a Plastic Cup
For mason jars mix 2 teaspoons of mod podge and 10 drops of your food coloring for each jar
I used a pickle jar so i mixed 4 teaspoons of mod podge and still 10 drops of food coloring.
Step 3: Pour
Pour your awesome mixure into the glass/glasses.
Rotate the glass until every inch on the inside is covered. If the glue doesn't move as quickly add a pinch to a teaspoon of water to the glass and continue to rotate until fully coated.
Once this is done flip it upside down and rest on a paper plate. The extra coloring will leak out. This is good.
Step 4: Cookie Tray
Place a layer of tin foil over the cookie tray. And place the jar - still upside down onto the tray. Place into the oven for 3-4 minutes.
Step 5: Flip
Remove the jar and whip the excess glue off from around the rim.
Place a clean sheet of tin foil over the cookie tray and flip the jar so it is now right side up.
Place back into the oven and bake for 30-60 minutes.
(My pickle jar ended up being 40 minutes)
Step 6: Remove
Remove from oven and let it cool.
Step 8: Cool
Let it sit and cool off..
Pretty isnt it! :) now you can use it as a vase or decorate it how ever you wish!
If you zoom in you can see the glue lines on this jar... Which means i used too much glue.
This was a trial run for me. Hope it helps you!
Have fun dying jars!
Step 9: Decorate
I made mine into a piggy bank for loose change.
Step 10: Mod Podge
Mod podge is great and dries quickly. Best glue for crafts.
