1- glass voitive pot, shaped like a terra cotta pot
18" x 1" peice of fabric strip

Jar preparation: with a foam brush apply the first coat of the latex

and third coats. Apply the second and third coats of wall paint.
Spray paint the glass votive pot with gold spray paint, inside and out.
Set aside to dry.
Basecoat the jar and outside of the glass voitve pot with black. Do not
paint the inside of the glass voitve pot with black. After you paint the
outside black you will still be able to see the gold inside
and it will give the pot an antiqued look!
Transfer the pattern onto the jar.
