      Thank you so much, Katie! It’s actually a bit of a happy accident. I was working on my bench and I walked past my mason jar stash to get my brushes. I grabbed a few and thought, “Why not?”

      Turns out – I was just as thrilled with the jars as I was with the bench!

      Thank you so much, Dannyelle! The colours are great, aren’t they? I’m a sucker for blue these days.

      Jess, you actually get it from Modern Masters – http://www.modernmasters.com. They have this crazy paint (the copper paint) that is reactive. So if you spray the patina solution (or there’s a rust activator solution) on top of the wet paint, it will create fantastic aged looks (but in minutes!).

      Krista – it’s actually this crazy-awesome reactive paint from Modern Masters. http://www.modernmasters.com

      This is the Copper metallic paint with the blue patina solution. You’d need the primer and the spray cap too. All in all, it should be less than $30 for all of it (and you’d have HEAPS leftover).

      Let me know if you can’t find it anywhere – there is a retailers button on the site for Canadian locations.

    I love these jars! I’ve been planning some re-purpose projects for some of my thrift shop finds and this is exactly the sort of thing I hope to do. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I love this! I had no idea that it was a reaction and not different paint colors. I just bought myself some liquid copper leaf and am totally excited to paint it on everything! I wonder if I could get the same effect on copper leaf. I guess I will have to do more searching. Thanks for the inspiring project!

    I’ve wanted a copper mailbox forever but they are around $500. I think this is just the resolution! Thank you!

    Do you think if I used a silver metal spray instead of copper that the blue patina will still come out the same?

      Do you have a reactive paint, Ashley? I used a paint that reacted to the spray that I used. Let me know what you’re working with and I’ll see if I can help.

    So FYI this doesn’t work if you don’t get the metal effects brand of blue patina, but I played around with what I did get and made some awesome “metal” mason jars, so thanks for the inspiration.

    Do you have to use the primer?

      Hi Cassandra – in this instance, it’s a good idea in order to get the reactive paint to stick to the glass. I haven’t ever tried it without.

    I love these! I’ve been playing with different acrylics and getting a combined color look. It was a bit tricky and stinky the last time though (tried to speed up the drying-not a good idea). Anyway I am wondering what the majic solution is?
    thanks
