Mason jars – I found mine at Michaels craft stores. I used the 8oz jars.
White primer – This is my favorite primer, and the only one I use.
Acrylic paint – I pretty much always use Martha Stewart acrylic paint. I love the color selection and vibrancy.
Paint markers – I can’t tell you how often I use my Posca Paint markers. You can use them for so many projects, including drawing on rocks. They’re especially great for small details on projects like this!
Step 1: Spray your mason jars with an even coat of white primer.
Step 2: Cover the jars with your favorite acrylic paint colors. I used two coats of paint.
Step 3: Use a pencil to lightly sketch the animal faces onto the jars.
Step 4: Go over the pencil tracing with your paint markers. Here’s a little tip for the paint markers, be sure to shake them well before use, and always test them first on a piece of paper.
Step 5 (optional): Seal your jars with a protective sealant. I usually skip this step, and honestly my jars still look great and haven’t chipped.
