so i scarf down pickles like there's no tomorrow. yeah, probably gross to a lot of you. anyway, i had some jars left over and decided to try out some techniques in decorating them
first, i took pearlescent white Premo polymer clay and moulded it around the neck of the jar, where the lid would screw on. i made little indents in the clay and baked the jars then glued fake pearls into them after the clay had cooled and hardened. then i spray painted the body of the jar with a light beige pearlescent spray paint. i decoupaged silver skeleton leaves onto the bodies of the jars with sparkley mod podge. if you can't tell, i like glittery and shiny things.
here's another image that's larger
i don't know what i'll do with them, but they are pretty. i was most interested in trying the clay technique because i wanted to see how i could turn jars and bottles with screw on lids into something resembling vases rather than food containers. i think the clay is a good way to disguise the past life of glass containers.
