Step 1: Materials That Are Needed

You will need:

  • A jar- any type is fine, as long as it is clean
  • Glow in the dark paint- any colors are fine and can have more than one
  • Paintbrushes- different brushes for the different colors, also long brushes to reach bottom of jar
  • Scrap paper- to put the paint on

Step 2: Painting the Jar

Taking a paintbrush and a clean jar, pick a color and make whatever design you want. There is no specific design.

Step 3: Let Dry

Put the jar in the sun or in any light source. This helps to make the paint get its glow.

Step 4: *Optional*

After about an hour, you can do a second coat of paint. A second coat will work better. This step is optional.

Step 5: BONUS

In this step, I will give you some ideas for painting patterns.

  1. One solid color

  3. Layers
  4. Solid color, leave a space, dotted intials
