Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This was very disappointing. I ordered a bunch of Rit dye just for this project. When I mixed Golden Yellow it curdled my Mod Podge, rendering it useless. Maybe this will work with some colors but it would be nice to know what they are so you dont waste materials.

Hi there, I'm so sorry this happened! The designer over and Debbie Doo's suggests dipping the paint brush in water in between each stroke to avoid clumping. You can see her tutorial on using Mod Podge and Rit Dye here: If you have any RIT Dye left over and want to give the project another go, I hope that helps!

Question paint the inside or outside ?

Hi there, you should apply paint to the outside of the jar. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts
