Hi there everyone!
Today I am sharing a quick Valentine mason jar experiment.
You know I love to be the mad scientist in the kitchen, and not so much with cooking, but with crafting.
You know how I have done all this Rit dye and mod podge experiments combined, and then even a few with gesso and rit dye?
Well, today, I thought I would try the experiment with Chalky-paint and Rit dye.
Worked like a charm.
I took a plain glass mason jar and first painted on the white Chalky-paint.
Let completely dry
Then came in with the color teal rit dye which I have used before on my Coastal vase
Let that completely dry
and it turned out perfect.
The rit dye immediately took to it and created a nice natural texture.
Now I have to go and do some more and experiment with different colors.
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my experiment with Chalky-paint and rit dye.
Hope you follow me around.

I love this idea it sounds so simple and easy I have been saving my jars for decorating outside this summer great idea. Love your blog one of my favorites I always look forward to see what you have done next. Keep it up.
Awww…Thanks Gloria! You made my day! XO
That’s a great idea! Love the finish 🙂
Debbie , this is Gloria again I want to order some of the Decor Chalky paint from Home Depot. Do you like it? I have never used any chalk paint but have two old pieces I want to try. I want an antique white but I can’t tell from the names of the colors which one would work if you could direct me to the right color. Thanks again
I love the paint and in fact it is perfect on furniture. Here is an example. The white I used here is white white, I believe there is an antique white, but keep in mind you can always change the white shade with some dark wax, also available in this same line. http://www.debbie-debbiedoos.com/2013/11/decoart-americana-decor-chalky-paint.html
Looks great! I love the ribbon on it and the tulips ~ one of my favorite flowers.

I really like how the texture turned out. *neat*
So cute…and I love the fact that you put tulips in it…Makes me think of spring…sigh.
Wow, I wanted to purchase some rit dye to make some old faded black jeans look new but, this just opened a whole new avenue for me to explore. Thank you so much for sharing I love then jars!
This is great as usual. Love the teal paired with the red. The touch of ribbon is nice.

Too cute! I bought some Rit dye a couple months ago when I saw what you were doing, but haven’t used it yet. I really have to get experimenting!
