Paint the outside of the jars. It will need about 3 coats, so paint and then let dry….paint and then let dry.

When it is fully dry, take a little piece of sandpaper (I had 80 grit on hand) and scuff all of that hard work back off lol

Just in certain areas though, mostly where there is raised wording or pictures. FYI: When you sand an area, you want to be able to see the inside of the jar just a wee bit. This gives that dark affect you see below:

Ta da!
