Do you keep Secrets?

Hi everyone, Steph here today with another altered jar.  I must say I have been having so much fun altering jars and Makin's ClayⓇ is a fantastic medium to use on jars to create amazing projects.

Do you keep secrets?  Do you write them down?  Where do you put them?  Instead of putting them in a box or an envelope, why not put them in a special secret jar?

Imagine Crafts Fireworks! Shimmery Craft Spray - Posie, Bamboo Leaves
The Crafter's Workshop Stencil
Prima Metallique Paints, Art Stones
Graphic 45 Key
Any size/type of jar

Use brown clay (or any color of choice) and form it around the jar.  Use your fingers to move the clay around the jar until the clay meets.  Fresh clay will adhere to the glass as well as itself  so no adhesive will be necessary to seal the edges.  Your fingers will leave indentations in the clay and that just adds to the texture around the jar.

Use a Crafter's Workshop stencil with molding paste randomly around the jar.  Let it dry completely.

Add color with a variety of Prima Metallique paints.

Continue adding color until you are satisfied with the results.  Allowing the colors to blend creates some amazing colors on the clay.

Spritz the jar with Fireworks! Shimmery Craft Spray in Posie and Bamboo Leaves.

Spritz a piece of mesh with Fireworks! Shimmery Craft Spray in Bamboo Leaves and then glue it around the jar.

Once dry, start adding a variety of elements.  I attached a key engraved with "Secrets" and assorted sized art stones along the mesh.

Finally, I glue additional mesh around the neck of the jar.  This hides any imperfections at the top of the jar as well as gives it a nice finished look.

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by.
