Everybody knows I love Mason jars, or better, changing them! I buy them cheap, oh so cheap, at the thrift store or I just reuse the pasta sauce ones and ..well, I just play a lot with these babies.
Once I painted them in the inside to give them a nice "milk glass effect", as in here. I must say they turned out lovely!
Things changed in my mind... I fell in love with the more rustic and distressed look... have seen several lately over the internet, mostly on Etsy. But no tutorial , really.
To work! I grabbed some spray paint that I bought on sale (!) at Michael's and had a mission in mind. I actually love them because they are pastel colours, very calming, and would work perfectly for the effect I wanted.
First, I used black spray paint in some areas , so that when I distressed the paint I would see it underneath.
For starters, 2 coats of paint.
No need for perfection, as I was gonna hit hard with the sand paper anyways.( used 120 and 400 grit)
Before and after sanding...ah, I much prefer it without the shinny look!
In my excitement, made a bunch of them!
oops...not so "pastel", but I have other plans for this one...keep tuned!
And hey, do not ask me how I could get the crackling effect..I guess maybe cuz the day I painted it was really really humid ...maybe...help anyone? I want to replicate that !:0)
Just can not decide in which container put them...
Show it off party at Get outta my head please
