Learn how to dye glass with food coloring and change the way you think about home decor. Dyed Glass Mason Jars are so simple to create an look great in any room of the house. You only need a few inexpensive supplies to complete this project.
- 2 Tbsp of Gloss Lustre Mod Podge
- 1-2 tsp water
- 2 drops blue food coloring
- 3 drops red food coloring
Mix your ingredients and pour into your jar. Swirl the mixture around and continue swirling as you pour the mixture out. Make sure the entire inside of the jar is coated. Most of the tutorials now say to place your jar upside down on newspaper or wax paper and to wipe the opening of the jar every now and then. I found that the Mod Podge pools and makes a huge messy clump around the top of the jar. I came up with these drying racks made out of strawberry baskets.
Note the color of the Mod Podge – as it dries it becomes darker and translucent. I used varying amounts of food color to get the three different colors on my jars.
I embellished the jars because the color wasn’t quite even around the neck of the jar where the Mod Podge dried thicker.
