- Mason jars
- Glow in the dark paint (get it online or at local craft store)
- Tap water
Glow sticks: Instead of glow in the dark paint try using glow sticks. Buy glow sticks online or in your local dollar store, cut into the sticks and splash the fluid all over the jars. Be careful not to stain yourself or the surrounding area. The glow in the dark effect will last only for a few hours.
Mason jar alternatives: If you don’t have mason jars available use clear glass or see through plastic cups.
1. Wash your jars.
2. Mix the paint with your brush until the glowing particles have dissolved evenly.
3. Make tiny dots in the inside of the jar. The more dots you make, the prettier the jar will look.
4. Dot on one colour first, then the next, etc.
5. Leave to dry.
6. You’re done!
It is this easy. In daylight your jar won’t look that fancy, but at night it will make your room beautiful and cozy. Charge it with a lamp, MasonBrite lid or with daylight and take it to a dark place to photograph!
