I like the bunnies, but I am loving the duck and chicken!
What you will need:
Jar with a lid
Plastic chicken, duck or bunny
Frosted glass spray
Glass etching cream
First you will want to use your E6000 to glue your duck to the lid of the jar, so it will have time to set before you paint it.
Next, you will want to spray a couple of coats of primer on. In my experience, you will use quite a bit more yellow paint and get frustrated at the coverage if you don't use primer first.
Now, you can paint it the pretty yellow color!
Now, lets work on the jars. You will first want to put rubber bands around the jar in somewhat of a random order. Use a popsicle stick (or something like it) to put the etching cream on the glass. This was a real pain, trying to get the etching cream into all the corners where the rubber bands meet.
Follow the instructions on the can regarding how long to wait before rinsing the etching cream off. Usually it's around 5 - 10 minutes. Then rinse the etching cream off under a faucet.
Then I tried Plan B - Frosted glass spray. Wow, this was so much easier, and it turned out just as nice as the etching cream.
I really like the bright yellow color.
I also made a set of more natural looking bunny jars, where only the lid is painted. These are actually my favorite!
What animal would you choose?
