I have a top secret project I'm working on that I thought a colored mason jar would look better than a clear one.
I promise to post once it's complete and has been given to the recipient!
I got this tint recipe here, but I like how mine turned out better!
Gel food coloring
3 T. water
1/2 C. Mod Podge
In a measuring cup (I used a 2 cup size), microwave the water for 30 seconds.
Stir in food coloring.
I used 1/2 jar (each jar is 1/2 oz) Sky Blue by Wilton brand.
Mix VERY well and then stir in Mod Podge.
Leave the mixture sit for a few minutes so the bubbles go away.
Pour into glass container and swirl around to coat the entire inside.
Pour liquid back into measuring cup and tip the jar upside down onto a paper plate (I put foil and then paper towels on top of the paper plate). Leave sit for about 10 minutes to drain excess back out.
I really liked how it looked, so I searched around my house for another glass dish to use my mixture on! All I could find was this lame candy dish!
Bake for 25 minutes at 170.
Take out of the oven when the jar is transparent again.
You may have to bake it longer than 25 minutes.
It will be really hot, so make sure to use hot pads!
I love, love, love how the jar turned out and I CANNOT wait to tint more glass!!
