Painted Glass Vase

So on to the very last teacher gift project of the Christmas season! My son did this himself with really no help from me except to buy him the supplies!

Clean, empty jar
Acrylic or liquid tempera paints
Paintbrushes or cotton swabs
White glue
Clear glaze (available at craft stores)

1. To make the paints stick to the glass, first mix the colors with some glue. Keep the paint thick so it won't run.

2. Use brushes or cotton swabs to paint a design on the jar. To erase a mistake, use a paper towel to wipe off the paint before it hardens.

3. Let the paint dry, then seal the finished design with a coat of glaze.

I got the idea from the Familyfun website!!
