Crackle Paint Upcycled Glass Jars!

 Pin It
Here's another amazing project to do with all those
GLASS JARS that you just can't throw out!
 These were Mango Pineapple Chipotle Salsa and Pickles to be exact!

After a hefty cleaning, I poured straight, thick paint right inside...
Smeared and rolled it around, and drained it out for about 10 minutes
(back into my paint can)

Then I baked them in the oven for 30 minutes...at 400* F
The painted dried crackled.  Easy as that!

After baking, there is no trace of the pickle or salsa smell!  yay!
But they look junky...
 Then I spray painted the inside with silver spray paint.
 Perfect crackled vase or pencil jar!
It's subtle, and kind of has a mercury glass appeal!

Great centerpiece idea!
