Steps:
  1. The first thing you need to do is to select the colors you want to used for this project. I’m using sea-inspired since it’s Summer and I want to spend all of my time at the beach! These colors are from the Martha Stewart Crafts collection which you can buy at your nearest Jo-Ann. Here is the list of colors I used: Cloud 32022, Beach Glass 32012, Green Curry 32005, Wedding Cake 32076, Couscous 32066.
  2. With these colors at hand, I started pouring small parts of the paint. I tried to let the paint drip from the bottom to the top (turning the jar upside down) and then, from the top to the bottom.
  3. After most of the area was covered, I pour on a spray bottle a solution of water and vinegar (1:5) and started spraying the inside of the jar. This helped the paint to slide better on the glass surface and also for it to have a watercolor consistency.
  4. After I finish spraying the inside of the jar, I let it rest over a paper towel. To speed the drying time, I used a hairdryer.
  5. Now you have a neat and colorful plant vase (of flowers) that is perfect for Summer!
