steps

  1. Paint your mason jars with Scallion, Wild Salmon, Summer Linen and Blue Sky.

  2. Once your paint is dry, add the silver gilded details. Instead of coating the whole jar in gilding adhesive, use a brush and dab it on in random areas. Wait until it dries clear and is tacky, about 10 minutes.

  3. Aply a sheet of the silver gilding directly to your surface and rub to ensure it adheres to your surface. Slowly peel away your sheet and use the natural bristle brush from the gilding brush to rub and brush off excess gilding.
