STEP 1

Stick the letters onto the jar and press down firmly, so that no colour will run around the edges later.

Tip: To make sure the lettering appears the right way on the jar, you can first stick it back to front with the upper side first onto an adhesive strip, and then press the whole word onto the jar. Then carefully remove the adhesive strip.

STEP 2

Spray the jar with your chosen paint colour. Make sure not to spray too hard in one area, to prevent the colour from running.

Tip: Read carefully the spraying instructions on the canister . Don’t forget to cover your work area. It’s better to apply two thin coats so the colour will dry without running.

When the paint is completely dry, carefully remove each letter. If they stick around the edges, you can carefully use a small craft knife to release them.
