Mushroom Fairy Jar - Painting on Glass

Painted Mason Jar
This month Marabu is sponsoring the Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop. They were generous enough to send me a starter set of their Porcelain Paints and a selection of their paint pens. I used them to paint a Mushroom Fairy Jar. I have realized that perhaps freehand painting is not my one of my strengths!

Marabu is giving away a great prize - be sure to read all the way to the end of the post to see how to enter for your chance to win.

Mushroom Fairy Jar

I picked up this cute mason jar at the store a while back - it holds votive holder inside- and I have been waiting to make something with it. The Porcelain Paints were super easy to apply and look great.  I used a very small stipple brush to create the texture of the mushrooms, then outlined with a very small liner brush.  I set it aside to dry at this point.

My second step was to add the white dots using the ball tip of an embossing tool. I used a small flat brush to add the stems and set aside to dry again. Last step was to add what I am going to call leaves. They don't look like leaves - but I am going to call them that anyway. Let's all pretend they are leaves. Your cooperation is appreciated.

So,, this looks way better in person than in a photo. I seriously took about 15 photos from different angles and with different exposures with no luck. This was as good as it got.  It looks very cool - trust me on this.
