I followed the directions and have baked my jars for about an hour and a half at 200 degrees.  Lots of streaks and a pooling on the bottom.  Do I just keep baking?  What should I do?

 

Thanks,

Carrie

Suzanne, Dede & CindyP made me do it...HAHAHAHA!

Carrie, you can keep baking, or accept the streaks.  Some streaks are just stubborn and won't ever go away, but I find that they look good anyway!

Thanks Suzanne...I'm on about 3 hours, I'm sort of stubborn like that.  I'll see what they look like now.

Carrie, how did your jars turn out? What colors did you use? I want to try that sometime.

Remember, if it rains on your picnic it's also raining on your garden!

Well, they turned out streaky.  It's probably because I always think more is best and put a LOT of the glue/water mixture in them.  I did green and blue.  I did 3 of each color.  I put them up in the window and they look pretty good.  I'm going to leave them there until I find some vintage colored jars.

 

I did all 6 at once.  If you limited yourself to two at a time I bet it would turn out really good.  I think it just had too much time to sit there and start to glob up before I got it into the oven.

 

Try it and let me know what happens!
