This pin on my Crafty Happiness board caught my eye not only because it's pretty but at first glance I thought they were vintage jars!

Tinted Mason Jars, Take One: I used regular quart-size mason jars so I took the amount of product I would need to use into account. I thought. Obviously, I would need more than the tutorial called for. The problem was, I think I used too much water with my food coloring because I didn't have enough color left on the glass when I was done. In fact, the one that looks blue should look purple!
Tinted Mason Jars, Take Two:
I got new glossy Mod Podge and did the purple jar the same way as before. It now just had double the color. I like it now!
I decided to take a different approach with the green one and not dilute the Mod Podge with any water--just use Mod Podge and food coloring. Uh, no. Look at the posterboard I worked on.
Tinted Green Mason Jar, Take Three:
This time I put one Tablespoon of water in the jar with food coloring and Modge Podge. I thought I got too much Mod Podge in again. I was eye balling it, you know!
The final result wasn't that bad. The mouths of the jars collect the most streaks because that's where the Mod Podge drips out, but those drips can be covered with lid rings.
