You would be hard-pressed to find something more useful than a mason jar. I use mason jars all over my kitchen, but I also keep a big supply of mason jars in the craft room. When I saw this faux vintage mason jar idea by Kitty Ideas on YouTube, and I thought seriously about making these jars for my kitchen. Ther are made with ornate detail that is made with air dry clay that you put into little molds. This miniature molding reminds me very much of old victorian molding I have seen in old houses in London, it’s very attractive.
Materials For Faux Vintage Jars:
- A mason jar
- Nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol (to clean the jar before painting)
- Craft paint (in the colors of choice)
- Air-dry clay
- Clay molds
- white glue (Elmer’s or Mod Podge)
- Varnish (for the last coating)
In this faux vintage mason jar idea by Kitty Ideas on YouTube, you will learn how to make this fabulous project in a few easy steps. You begin by wiping your mason jar down with nail polish remover to clean any oil off of it. Then you paint your very first coat of primer paint.
Then stick your clay moldings 0n and paint in the colors of your choice.
These jars are truly amazing, the more I look at them the more I feel that I might have to make one. I just love that clay molding, I can think of a lot of things that would look cute on!
