I found this little jar at Jo Ann's for a buck and decided to cover it. It's a little sloppy given that it was my first one but now I know where to go differently next time.

Fun ... love how you show the translucence of some of the designs too (were you shining a regular light into it or what??).

It would look cool too with a small votive candle in it (as long as you left the lid off of course Shocked) .  Have you tried that yet, or you just going to use it as a container or pencil cup, etc.?

Very cool! I have covered a bunch of those same jars too and given them as gifts. I just wanted to warn you, they're more for decoration than for actual use, because the hinge thingy starts cracking the fimo as the person opens and closes it all the time, and then it starts falling off.

Unless Diane B knows of a way to do it without that happening! That would be cool because people really like these.

I liked the colors you used too. Cool!

I just learned to apply it a little below where the hinge hits it.  Grin
