I’ve been seeing a lot of pretty projects made from faux sea glass. Candle holders, vases, etc. I finally gave it a try, and it is so easy. The recipe I found said to use Elmer’s glue, but I didn’t have any, so I used Mod Podge instead. (Supply list at bottom of post)
First mix about three tablespoons of mod Podge, and two drops of food coloring.
Paint jar than sit upside down to dry. Cover leftover Mod Podge until ready to paint the next coat.
Add another coat of your nixture, and let dry throughly.
I added four coats of the mixture to achieve the color that I wanted. I found out that a sponge brush works better then a paint brush. It goes on smoother and leaves less lines for a more even coat.
I liked how it turned out so I decided to do one in green as well.
With the green I used only the sponge brush. Which went on smoother, and only took three coats to achieve the color I was looking for.
