This cute craft uses watered-down paint to create a dripping pattern. Depending on the colors you choose, the results can look like marble, tie-dye, dripping paint and much more. Great as a gift itself, or filled with bath salts/oils or other non-food items.
Approximate Time: 20 minutes without drying time
Notes On Jar: Try to use a "bumpy" glass for this project. The more super-slick the glass, the less the paint will stick and the straighter the drips will remain. You want a slightly rough glass to help the paint stick and give lots of interesting paths for the drips.
Notes On Paint
How you want to mix the paint is entirely up to you. I usually mix a tiny bit less than 2/3 paint with a tiny bit more than 1/3 water. You want the paint to be watery enough to drip, but not so watery that it loses color or drips right off the jar. Some paint will drip off, and you definitely need to do this project on a layer of newspapers and garbage bags. But your aim is to make most of the dots drip down, but not completely off, the jar.
To make the same exact jar I made, you will have to apply the colors as follows:

That looks so cool. I love the colors in it. The shape of the vase is cool, too.
