Mixed Media Altered Jar

Hi everyone, I've got a new altered jar to share using lots of  fun products from the Rubber Buggy store.  Please visit the store for all the fun products I've used today.

I chose to alter a bell jar, but any size or shape of jar can be altered.  See what you have in your stash and let your creativity shine!

Use a spackle knife to cover the Stamperia Mould - Butterfly and Manuscripts, with Prima Marketing Old Silver Icing Paste.  Place a light even layer to cover the entire mould.

Allow the Icing Paste to dry and gently pull away from the Stamperia Mould.  I let it dry overnight, but simply test the mould to see when it's dry enough to remove from the mold.

Paint the jar with Prima Marketing Art Alchemy in Royal Blue and Ice Queen.

Allow the jar to dry then use Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue to adhere the mould around the jar.  Depending on the size of your jar, the mould may not fit it completely, but I was fine with that.

Allow to dry completely, then add color using assorted Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Metallique Paints.  I used Gold Amber, Golden Moss, Fairy Wings, Dragon's Eye, painting the jar randomly.

Next, I used some of the same paints to paint some clay elements.  Then I used Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Magic Wax to add color to  Tim Holtz Ideaology mini gears and the clay elements.

Next, I assembled all items on the jar with Beacon 3-in-1Adhesive.  Then, I added some  Prima Marketing Art Stones about the jar.

Finally, I wrapped twine around the top of the jar and added  a Tim Holtz Ideaology Metal Quote Token.

Thank you for visiting.
