How to make a jar painting with Chalk Couture:
You can see just how to make this jar painting in the video below.
Can’t watch the video or missed some of the steps? Follow along with the step by step instructions below!
- Start with a wood surface that has been painted.
- Cut the transfer into pieces and set aside all of the pieces you do not need.
- Then start with your mason jar and the pink lemonade portion. Be sure to add a little fuzz to the sticky part of the transfer by sticking it to a bath towel then add to your wood piece.
- Mix white and pink Chalkology Paste until you get your desired color then add to transfer.
- Use squeegee to add paste to all areas, remove any excess, then peel up transfer. Allow this to dry before layering on additional pieces.
- While that dries, you can add the quote down the side. Be sure to fuzz the transfer again and also only do those areas that are needed for each line. You can either avoid adding paste to these areas or cover them with painter’s tape. Then just repeat for all three words making sure not to lay the transfer over any wet areas.
- Then add the straw to the pink lemonade. Allow to dry then layer the mason jar on top.
- Allow everything to dry before sealing. You will want to use a few coats of the spray sealer over the entire thing. If you want to turn this jar painting into a tray, be sure to use a few coats of poly or an epoxy resin as well.
- Be sure to clean your transfers well and do not allow the paste to dry on top of them. This is important so that you can get tons of uses out of one transfer. If you have questions on cleaning, just see our beginner’s guide here.
Once your jar painting is complete, you can add it to any room in your home!
