Earlier on a previous blog I showed where I had plastered & painted over a glass cookie jar.
The purpose of the jar was to hold all of my ponytail accessories, they're pretty clunky. The problem with this was it was too light and didn't go well with the table I wanted to keep it on. I'm not talented like most, it takes me a while to resolve problems. So, I left it alone.
Last weekend I decided to see if I could darken it. What I was hoping for was something a bit more dirty looking with that worn out rustic, old world look.
I went back and dirtied it down with raw umber; and while still wet misted it lightly with water,this would cause the paint to run down the jar, and hopefully give it that faded, weathered look. After a few seconds while still wet I dabbed it with a cloth and once it was dry I sanded it in spots. Initially, I wasn't too sure how it was going to turn out and I thought it was a big screw up, but surprisingly after a few days of curing, I like it much better!
I love the crustiness...
I have this glass table in my room that I had painted some time back that I wanted to display it on. I rummaged through my fabric remnants and found some sheer fabric that I had used for my dining room window treatment. I cut off a piece and folded it over the table, then I adorned it with my junk jewelry.
I've been looking for a cute basket or a decorative box to place under my glass table, but until then I'll leave it like this.
LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!
