Tinting Jars Techniques
TIP & TRICKS: I thought doing this with a hot glue gun was hard to control the flow and design. I found puff paint worked much better and was simpler to control. Doesn't matter what color because you'll be painting over it. And instead of free handing the writing or designs, try printing what you want. Tape it to the inside of the jar and write on the front of the jar. Let dry and then paint!

Disclaimer: Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration but not all pins lead to blogs. I tried to only pick those ideas that I could find the original creator and give credit to. Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on the new My Craft Channel show Inspired by Pinterest. If you've never been to Pinterest and would like to check it out, you need an invite to the site to gain access (I don't know why). Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an invite. However, I cannot be responsible for the time you will be spending on Pinterest!!
