Mason jars are one of the most versatile objects you could have in your household; you can pretty much use them for anything and everything. I saw this picture and immediately wanted to replicate and try something a little different as well. I had never spray painted anything before this (….I know guys.), and it was definitely an experience.
My little jars are full of flaws, since I lack the skill, didn’t bother to research (mistake) and I’m also one of those that kind of throws the instruction book away and starts using or building things by… instinct? Lesson learned my friends, if I had taken the time to research and gather a few tips, it would’ve made a difference. I’ll show you what I’m talking about but first, here’s what you need:
1) Make sure the glass surfaces are clean.
2) Place the tape against the glass as smooth as you can in the spots you don’t want to get paint on.
3) Spray paint away. (Read this first)
Now, I did two jars, the first one (pictured above) had some bubbles in some taped sections and some of the spray paint creeped in, I was able to get rid of most of the damage by removing the paint in the edges very carefully with a blade but whatever was left there I really don’t mind, I still like it. The second jar I painted all gold. I put on a first thick coat and it started dripping as it dried (OOPS!), despite of my mistake, I actually liked how it turned out, happy accident. All good.
I’m also loving having flowers in the house. It’s the little things, right?
