instructions

Mason Jars

  1. Thoroughly wash glass canning jars in warm soapy water. Rinse well and dry.
  2. Moisten paper towel with rubbing alcohol; wipe over entire glass surface to remove remaining dirt, dust or grease from glass which can prevent paint from thoroughly adhering to the glass surface.
  3. Paint jars in desired colors, let dry.
  4. Dip the FolkArt Layering Block in paint and gently sweep the block along the edges and raised parts of your jar.

Crate
  1. Apply even coat of Waverly Inspirations Chalk Acrylic Paint - Agave, 8 oz. – 60685E to crate. When dry, apply a second coat. Allow to dry for two hours. Waverly Inspirations Chalk will dry to an ultra-matte finish.
    • TIP: If desired, the second application of paint can be painted a different color – when distressed, the first layer of color will show through.
