    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • stylus or pencil
    • rubbing alcohol
    • liner brush
    • cosmetic sponge
    • smooth quart-sized Ball® jar
    • low-tack painter's tape



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Clean the jar with rubbing alcohol and let dry before painting.
    2. Use low-tack painter's tape to mask off the label area.
    3. Use a cosmetic sponge to pounce Sand inside the masked-off area. Repeat for opaque coverage.
    4. Using the same sponge, load a small amount of Dark Chocolate and pounce on the palette or plastic plate to soften the color. Lightly pounce the color around the edges of the label.
    5. Carefully remove the tape immediately.
    6. Trace and transfer the lettering by taping the pattern inside the jar.
    7. Use a liner brush and Black to do the lettering, label edges, webs, and spiders.
    8. Use a liner brush and Tuscan Red to paint the hourglass on the top spider.
