I saw these painted mason jars on Pinterest and pinned it to my “Things I will make one day” board. I love the look!
This How-To is from “It all Started with Paint”
I was down at the Orange Antique Malls shopping around and found this great bottle with a chicken on it ..
My Mom-in-Law loves chickens so I bought the bottle with a Mother’s day project in mind …
I thought I would start with a layer of white paint to give it depth when I started sanding..
Give it two layers of paint, letting each layer dry before adding more paint.
My Mom-in-Law loves purple .. so here comes the purple layer!
Remember, two coats of paint!
Time to sand! I used Drywall sandpaper #150. I cut it into 2 inch strips and worked on the bottle, stepped back, took a look .. sanded some more until I got the look I wanted.
I thought I would leave the chicken just plain .. but it didn’t “pop” enough, so I added a bit of white paint and then added a bit of clear sparkle paint.
I sprayed the bottle with this Crystal Clear to protect it.
Done! The clear coat really made the paint look darker .. which was nice … and that is just sun hitting the top making it look like a lid or something…
I hope you have fun painting your own bottle!
