    • water container
    • paper towels
    • rubbing alcohol
    • sandpaper
    • lint-free cloth
    • white cloth
    • 2" chip brush
    • paraffin
    • wooden CD crate
    • Mason jars



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    Bake the jars according to the directions for a dishwasher-safe finish.

    1. Remove lids from the jars; clean with rubbing alcohol and paper towels.
    2. Load 2” chip brush with Vintage. Apply thin coat all over first jar.
    3. Use the same brush and load with Serene. Apply thin coat all over second jar.
    4. Use the same brush and load with Primitive. Apply thin coat all over third jar.
    5. Basecoat the crate with Relic using 2" chip brush.
    6. Use paraffin to rub over areas where you want Relic to show through.
    7. Use 2” chip brush and lightly load with Everlasting, wiping some off onto paper towel. Lightly pull brush across the crate horizontally and vertically on sides.
    8. Use sandpaper to sand jars. (Use new piece every time you change colors.) Sand crate.
    9. Seal by brushing Clear Crème Wax over the crate. Either leave it that way or buff with white, lint-free cloth to give it a smooth, satin sheen.
