Faux Tartan Plaid Ball Mason Jar Thermos

Hi Friends!

This one is just for fun-

I have always love camp theme decor .


That includes a bit of plaid.

I thought I could try to paint a Mason Jar to copy cat

a thermos.


I started to paint the jar just like painting

buffalo check.




Here are the colors that I used...
 
 
Bright Red, Tuscan Red and Black
 
I'm showing the technic on a pint jar.
 
Paint the outside of your jar with  Bright Red
 
 


I used Tuscan Red to make my vertical stripes.
 
I don't like to use tape I think it looks better free hand. 
 

 
Then paint the horizontal stripes start under the lip of the jar.
 

 
 Then at the base.
 

 Paint center stripe centered evenly between the top and bottom stripe.
 

 
After your stripes have dried come back in with Black paint
 
at all the points were the stripes overlap.  Use a square tip brush so you can make
 
sharp squares.
 


That is basically how to paint buffalo check!


I used some old paint I had on hand.
The colors were Butter Yellow and Beige or Flesh Tone.





I used a quart jar for my thermos.




Then I came back and painted a thin  yellow vertical

 line over the stripes.






Then a thin horizontal line.


I used beige paint at the top.

Now it's starting to look like a thermos.













Thanks for visiting!

  3. They both turned out great. I used glue and tissue paper to cover quart Mason jars and inserted small solar lights in the lids. They make a pretty glow on the picnic table when we have sunny days. - Margy

    1. Donna,
      My trick is to use a square bristle paint brush. It will give you a nice line. The tape method leaves strange edges... in my opinion. Thank you for hosting.
