Painted Mason Jar Glasses
Materials Needed to Make Painted Mason Jar Glasses:

Jar 3: Royal Fuchsia, Dioxaizine Purple, White
Directions For Making Painted Mason Jar Glasses:
Wash and dry your mason jars and wipe the outside with rubbing alcohol. Set aside to dry.
Begin to place small dots, about 1/4″ in size on the jar. Start with one single color and then continue to add a second and then third color, if desired, on top of the existing dots.
If you get a “crazy dot” that isn’t up to your liking, too large or not circular, just wipe away with a damp paper towel.
Repeat with the other jars and colors.
Allow to dry 4 days.
Place in a cool oven on a baking sheet, set temperature to 350 and once oven comes to temperature, bake for 30 minutes. Cool with oven door partially open.
This will make your jar dishwasher safe, but do not allow the paint to come in direct contact with food.
