The trend of blue tinted mason jars is fading a bit as wedding centerpieces, but colored glass is here to stay. I’m always reaching for color coordinating vases when I’m hosting a party a shower and yes sometimes a wedding. I have found that the only way I could color coordinate vases for parties is by using opaque spray paint and paint them myself. So you can just imagine my excitement when I found this product Tint it, the color is transparent, it’s a way to tint glass so that it still looks like colored glass, with the ease of using a spray can. Design Master was kind enough to send me some Tint-it product. I drank a Snapple washed out the bottle and got to work to see if I could get a good result from this spray Tint-it. So let me show you how to color glass using this cool product.
Wash the glass the vase, jar, or drinking glass extremely well, making sure there is no juice or label glue still attached to the glass.
Set your vase on top of a large piece of cardboard in your garage or coved porch, not in direct sunlight.
lightly spray the Tint-it 12 inches from your glass or vase in a light back and forth motion, make sure you are covering all sides of the glass evenly. This product works on glass best when you only need one or two coats to get the color you like.
If you want two colors or an ombre effect then do this while the spray tint it, is wet. it tends to blend better this way. Its hard to see the color blend of purple and red but the ombre effect is really pretty.
If you want a pattern or stripes it’s as easy as taping off the areas that you don’t want to be covered in tint it. I loved the polka-dot effect of coloring the frosted jar from Ikea. and the striped vase is just a touch of color to add to my living room. If you want to see more projects I did using Tint-it check out my Overdye rug tutorial or Farmhouse baskets post
Tint-it is super easy to use and I loved using this spray to create lots of colored glass vases for some upcoming projects. Its a cheap and fun way to color glass on your own with glass jars you already have.
