I’m taking a break from the craziness of moving to a new home and unpacking the mountains of boxes surrounding me to bring you a fun little project that I hope you’ll love. There’s nothing I need more desperately right now than to get organized, and one of the things I’m working on organizing are my boys’ art supplies. They love art, and my oldest son will literally sit and draw for hours. When I had the opportunity to try out the new Mod Podge Sheer Colors, I thought some tinted glass jars would be perfect for storing some of their art supplies like crayons, colored pencils, and markers.
I received a package with all kinds of fun Mod Podge goodies from Plaid. It included Mod Podge Sheer Colors, Facet Shapes, and Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge. All of these products can be found at Michaels or on Plaid’s website.
Now here’s a little tutorial for how to make tinted glass. I had no idea it was so easy! For my project, I used the Sheer Pink, Sheer Aqua, and Sheer Orange Mod Podge Sheer Colors. I started with a few small glass jars. One was a small jam jar and the other two were just a little bit larger, but any jars will do.
First, squirt some of your Sheer Colors into the jar and swirl it around. Use it sparingly! You don’t want to coat it too thick or it will take a very long time to dry. A thin coat is all you need.
Turn it upside down and let it dry overnight. I put mine on top of a paper plate covered in paper towels.
They will look opaque at first, but they dry transparent. You will also have to use your fingers or a utility knife to peel away the excess paint around the rim of your jar after it has dried. This project was so easy and literally just took minutes. I woke up in the morning and they were ready to use!
I’ll probably make more of these for my own craft supply storage too. I love the look of the pretty colored glass.
