These pretty Painted Mason Jars make for great drinking glasses! This kid-friendly craft is quick and simple to do over the weekend
Age Group: Adult
Glass wide mouth mason jarsmine are quart size
Crystal Gloss Enamels:
Once your jars are nice and clean, paint a coat of Citron (green) onto the body of the jar, up to about the spot where the glass begins to curve.
You don't want to paint too high, in order to leave room for the flowers. But more importantly, while this paint is non-toxic, it is not approved by the FDA to touch food. So you don't want to paint the rims where your lips will touch the jar.
Use the handle end of your paintbrush dipped in the different colored enamels and dot on flowers. Couldn't be easier! Use a different color to dot on the centers. You may notice the petals dripping a little. If they do, just "draw" circles with your paintbrush handle in the petal to spread it around a little. You can also turn the jars upside down for five minutes then right side up for five minutes, and alternate now and then to keep gravity confused. ;-)
This step is important. Now that you are done painting, the paint needs to cure for FOUR DAYS. Just put them somewhere where they won't be bothered.
After the four day curing period, follow the instructions on the back of the paint bottle for baking them. Then you are good to go!
You will need 4 days drying time for this project, so please be sure to plan ahead!
