Dyed Glass Mason Jars

By:

3 Comments

Learn how to dye glass with food coloring and change the way you think about home decor. Dyed Glass Mason Jars are so simple to create an look great in any room of the house. You only need a few inexpensive supplies to complete this project.


 

Materials:

  • 2 Tbsp of Gloss Lustre Mod Podge
  • 1-2 tsp water
  • 2 drops blue food coloring
  • 3 drops red food coloring

 

Instructions:

  1. Mix your ingredients and pour into your jar. Swirl the mixture around and continue swirling as you pour the mixture out. Make sure the entire inside of the jar is coated. Most of the tutorials now say to place your jar upside down on newspaper or wax paper and to wipe the opening of the jar every now and then. I found that the Mod Podge pools and makes a huge messy clump around the top of the jar. I came up with these drying racks made out of strawberry baskets.


     
  2. Note the color of the Mod Podge – as it dries it becomes darker and translucent. I used varying amounts of food color to get the three different colors on my jars.


     
  3. I embellished the jars because the color wasn’t quite even around the neck of the jar where the Mod Podge dried thicker.

Love the ideal , but the embellishments on the jar could be perked up a little more.

Cool! I was wondering how the jars were dyed. I've painted them solid before, but I want some clear. I would like to dye some jars blue and make solar lanterns for my yard. Thanks for sharing! Saving and sharing!!!

A nice idea, though I'd prefer more variation in colour density (multiple applications would suffice, I assume?). Can anyone tell me if this mixture would work on the plastics of battery-operated Tea Lightsat all? Also, is there a UK alternative to 'Mod Podge' (assuming it's not available in craft shops here - though I assume it should be possible to acquire through Amazon)? Thank You.

You can make homemade Mod Podge by mixing 3/4 white glue such as Elmer's School Glue to 1/4 water.
