One of my most viewed posts has been, How to paint BUFFALO CHECK PLAID on
Mason Jars in the Black and White. Always a good choice for FARMHOUSE décor. I love it year round. I thought it might be fun to show
you how the technique can be used to paint ANY color. Wouldn't it be great to be able to
change up your table or shelf with just a couple of recycled jars.
Just think about how many times a color change would be needed.
Baby showers, Birthday parties, Your kid's Team Colors !
Great combinations too !
My inspiration came from this Welcome sign I bought at the Dollar Tree.
I thought it would be nice to have some vases for SPRING.
The technique is the same as with the Black and White.
You will need White paint, Chalk or acrylic
A 1'' brush to paint the stripes
A small square or flat brush to paint small square of darker color
Wax is optional, gives a nice sheen and protects paint
Paint the outside of Jar white , I put one hand inside the jar and paint with the other, open side down
Pick a color for your stripes, the lighter color.
Pick a darker shade for your accent color.
FOR THE YELLOW JAR:
I only had one container of yellow paint, so I add WHITE to make my stripe color.
FOR THE GREEN JAR:
I used two different colors, light green and Hunter green.
The lighter green will be the stripes, the darker color will be the accent.
FOR THE PINK JAR:
I used two different colors, light pink and mauve.
The darker color is the accent color
FOR THE BLUE JAR:
I used two colors, light blue and country blue.
The darker color is the accent color.
Stripes are painted first, about 1 '' wide from top to bottom. You will have approx. 5
I am showing you grey but this will be the lighter of the two colors you are using.
Next your horizontal stripes, one below the jar lip. One at the bottom of jar,
one in the middle.
Where the stripes cross, that is where you paint the accent color.
After the jar dries you can cover with a thin layer of clear wax.
I added a bit of jute round the neck of the jar. Maybe you prefer lace.
I hope this doesn't sound to complicated. It is simple, and the most unusual optical illusion occurs!
Your friends and family will be surprised it is not fabric. Let me know if you
have any questions or share with me what color combinations you came up with.
