Modge Podge + Food Coloring to make beautiful, colorful mason jars. (Mix Modge Podge and coloring in a bowl then coat the inside of the jar. Make sure color is dark enough for bright color. Place upside down on wax paper 30 min. Then put in oven 170 for 10min upside on wax paper. Then turn right side up for 30 min. Perfection)
Remember the Mod Podge + food coloring technique for painting clear glass? That was cool and all, but I spotted another method using Vitrail glass paint and acetone (nail polish remover) that allows the bottles and jars to be used as actual vases, as the finish is waterproof! This treatment provides for more depth of color as well.
#Teacher gift idea, #soap craft, #keepsake. *I took their photos, cut them out and glue onto white paper. Then photo copy onto transparency paper (Kinkos for less than a dollar), then cut out image and roll it up so that it can fit into the top of a soap bottle. Make sure you have clear soap or sanitizer. Done!
