How to Use Mod Podge Sheer Colors

How to Use Mod Podge Sheer Colors

If you happen to be a home décor trend watcher like me, I am sure then that you have seen colored glass all over the place at retail. Guess what? Now you can create your own transparent colored glass using Mod Podge Sheer Colors. It is so easy to do!

Currently there are six colors in the line: Purple, Green, Yellow, Orange, Pink, and Aqua; but in May three more NEW colors will be added: Blue, Red, and Brown! Let me now share with you the easiest way to use Mod Podge Sheer Colors…You will want to rush out and get some to try yourself.

Let’s begin by gathering the necessary supplies:

  • Mod Podge Sheer Color (I chose Pink – EVERYONE LOVES pink, right?)
  • Glass canning jar or container
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Paper towels
  • Foam plate
  • Craft knife

Begin your project by thoroughly washing your canning jar in warm soapy water, rinse well and allow to dry. Moisten a paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe over the interior of the glass canning jar. This will remove any remaining dirt, dust, or soap film. Allow to dry. While it is drying, twist off the cap and remove the heat seal; replace the Mod Podge Sheer Color cap.

Place jar upright on your work surface. Flip open Mod Podge Sheer Color lid and hold it open over the open canning jar.

Gently apply pressure to the bottle while squeezing Mod Podge Sheer Color into the canning jar. Squeeze approximately two tablespoons to begin, (amount will vary depending on the size of the glass container.

Lift the canning jar and begin to swirl the Mod Podge Sheer Color around to coat. Mod Podge Sheer Colors are fairly thick and appear solid in color while wet. Trust me; it will dry to a beautiful transparent color!

Continue swirling…You got the hang of it!

Here’s a look at the jar with the interior fully coated with Mod Podge Sheer Colors. Don’t you love it so far? The next step is to remove any excess Sheer Color from the jar.

So, invert the jar, shake it over a wastebasket until no more drips are falling; then place it over a foam plate and allow any additional Mod Podge Sheer Color excess to drip. Approximately 30 minutes later, check the jar for drips and then lay it on its side to allow air to circulate. TIP: Be sure to turn the jar a quarter turn every 30 minutes. TIP: You can also speed up the drying process; set your open jar in front of a fan to increase air flow into the jar.

Once the Mod Podge Sheer Color is thoroughly dry, (you will know it is when the color becomes completely sheer and beautifully transparent), if necessary trim away dried sheer color drips around the mouth of the jar using a craft knife.

HELPFUL HINT: Mod Podge Sheer Colors are water based. Coloring the interior of a glass container would be for decorative purposes ONLY. You cannot use this same canning jar to hold a bouquet of daisies in water as the water would compromise the transparent color. However, if you want to use the canning jar that would hold liquid, simply brush Mod Podge Sheer Colors onto the exterior of the jar.

Here is an example of a pint size jar that was colored on the exterior. TIP: Notice too that you can create an Ombre look by applying a second layer of Sheer Color at the neck of the jar. Look at the difference between the two techniques. Fun, eh?

And look what else you can do…Embellish with Mod Podge Peel & Stick Stencils and Podgeable Glitters (refer to the blog post 1/14/14 on how to use these). You can also use Mod Podge to decoupage a photo and embellish with Mod Molds / Melts. TIP: Mod Podge Sheer Colors can also be used to apply a sheer tint of color to the Mod Molds! So …. Just when you thought you understood everything that Mod Podge Sheer Colors can do and how to use them…let me share with you a few more ideas…

Mod Podge Sheer Colors are NOT just for glass although they work perfectly on glassware. You can also apply transparent sheer color to metal, raw wood, seashells, and over scrapbook papers, as you see here! Check out the Ombre wood frame in the back, the more layers you brush onto the surface, the stronger the color becomes.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post and explanation of Mod Podge Sheer Colors. They are waterbase which means soap and water cleanup, and are made in America! Mod Podge Sheer Colors are so very easy to use; the possibilities are endless. Why not try some today? I promise, you will LOVE them!

I found these at my local Michaels.  The first time I tried it I left it upside down for too long and it streaked when it dried because so much of the Mod Podge had come out.  But I left some water and dish soap in the jar and could peel the tint back out (I won't tell you how gross it was either).  Since last week, I've bought other various glassware items and stole some out of our recycle bin at home...and bought a couple more colors.
