What You Will Need

  • Mason jar I am using a wide mouth quart size but any will work.
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Lint-free cloth
  • Glass stain The brand I used is sold out but Gallery Glass works great too.


  • Clean the surface well with rubbing alcohol and a lint-free cloth. Allow to dry completely. Lay the clean mason jar on the side and start pouring on the glass stain in stripes as shown below.

  • Continue until you have the stain on the full length of the jar and it is running over both sides as shown below. Rotate and add more glass stain until the entire jar is covered.

  • Turn up as shown for about 10 minutes. Then turn over upside down to dry completely.
