instructions

  1. Using a sponge, basecoat your entire mason jar in your lightest color. Allow to fully dry.
  2. Using a sponge, apply a second coat of your lightest color only to the bottom third of your jar. While your paint is still wet, move on to your second middle color.
  3. Using a sponge, apply your middle color to the center and allow your sponge to blend the two colors where they touch. While wet, move onto your third color.
  4. Using a sponge, apply your third color to the top 3rd of the jar, allowing the colors to blend where they touch.
  5. Continue in this fashion until you have an ombre blend!
