ere's another painted jar. what I do is clean the jar well, spray paint it with paint that is flat, not glossy...this gives some "tooth" for the acrylics to cling to.Before painting I usually glue on some lace around the top of the jar. I usually give about three light coats. Then I paint on it with my regular acrylic paints. The paint goes on really well. When the painting is finished I give a coat of clear acrylic spray to seal it. It seems to be very durable.

Sharii, Thanks for sharing what you do to achieve that! Wish the picture was a little larger on this one. Have you done any furniture? My mother did hand-painted toliet seats once. Wish I had a picture of them!

Pretty http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif When u say jar! Are you talking glass jar? I was told when painting on glass it is customary to bake it at a high tempreture to keep the image on.

TeAnne, these jars are just regular glass jars like pickle or mayonnaise jars. I think you are talking about the special paint for glass. I first lightly spray the jar with acrylic spray paint (just the cheap paint) to give it some tooth, then I paint on it with "REGULAR" acrylic paint, then I spray it with clear acrylic spray paint to seal and protect it. It seems to be quite durable, but only for decorative purposes. Of course, since the inside of the jar isn't sprayed you could certainly put food in it. Hope this helps. Sharii

You can also sand the glass or put gesso on it first.
Sounds like your method should work fine.

Thanks Sharii http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif
I asked my friend about it too (she teaches Folk art) and she said she uses the Jolsona paint and bakes it on the glass, has longer durability she said. So both methods are good. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif
