Tips for Painting Mason Jars

Before starting to paint your Mason jars make sure you have a nice clean jar to paint on. I would suggest cleaning your jars with rubbing alcohol and allowing that to dry (it will dry very quickly) before you get to work. You can definitely use soapy water to clean your jars, however, using rubbing alcohol will help make sure that any icky residue or oils that may be on the jars are going to get removed really well giving you that clean smooth surface that is ideal for painting jars.

After your project has dried, and before you display your jars, make sure to go the extra mile and apply a sealant. If you are planning to display this mason jar inside a sealant such as Mod Podge will do the job. If you are planning to place your jars outside though, opt for a more protective sealant such as polyacrylic.
