You can't imagine how easy it is to transform this glass jar into something aged and vintage. We will make a relief drawing and paint it with touches of black, silver and copper-colored aging shadows. It takes a little time to do it, due to the drying times, but it is worth how beautiful it is.
The materials I used for the jar:
- A large glass jar to recycle.
- Black acrylic paint.
- Silver acrylic paint.
- White acrylic paint.
- Acrylic copper paint.
- A piece of sponge.
- A glass of water.
- A brush.
- A template to make the drawing.
- Relief paste.
You can see this craft step by step in the following video:
We choose the template we want to use and place it on top of the glass jar. To hold it we can use a bit of cellophane.
With the help of a brush we will pour the relief paste and we will go into the holes of the template. Once the entire drawing is covered, we will let it dry for two or three hours.
Once dry, carefully remove the template, as it will be very sticky when it dries.
We start by painting the glass jar with black paint. We will paint it completely with the help of the sponge or with a brush. Let dry until the next coat.
With the silver acrylic paint we do the same, we paint the glass bottle with the help of the sponge, but this time with little touches, without completely covering the lower part that is painted black. We let dry.
We take a little white acrylic paint and paint the part of the drawing that we have formed in relief. We let dry.
We go back to giving a few touches with the sponge and painting in pieces of black acrylic paint. You have to give it a worn and aged look. We let dry.
We only have to give the final and aged touch, applying a little copper-colored paint. We will help ourselves with a brush or a sponge. Let dry and we will have our vintage boat ready.
