these were two of the many inspirations - and they both had great tutorials to follow.......
anyhoo - here's how my experiment went today...
|ingredients - clean glass jars, mod podge, water and yellow food colouring - plus oven on 150 degrees c|
|clean clear glass jar - the "before"|
|this is the "during" - mod podge mixed with water and food colouring - swirled around jar|
|this is the "after" - after 20 minutes in the oven - yes - different jar - but this one worked out the best!!|
|these are all the jars i worked with - the three larger jars i tried a second coat - and it failed!! lucky this stuff washed off - they're all clean and ready for a second try!!|
|it doesn't look quite this yellow in real life - but i think it worked out pretty well all the same.|
check out those blogs above for their instructions and amounts to use - i just winged it - i think i'll use less water next time.
i'm going to make more and use them as candle holders down the centre of our dining table in the loungeroom - promise to show pics when that's all ready to show.
the room is vastly cleaner than i showed here (scroll down - second last photo - eek!!) - and we actually managed to eat there every night when all the visitors were here last week - but there is still mess around the peripherals - and some painting to do - but it's getting there - slowly!!
that's been my fun for today.
hope things are well in your world today.
