Upcycled Vase Made From a Honey Jar

I love to upcycle.   Some of my favorite projects involve upcycling things, like jars, that would normally end up in the trash bin into something that is functional.
 Items used for this project:
Honey Jar
Tissue Paper
Gloss Varnish
Terri Sproul Mixers in Silver
Powdered Pigment in Pearl

I covered the jar in two layers of Turquoise Tissue Paper.  Then added a layer of Terri Sproul Mixers in Silver combined with a gloss varnish.

Then I added polka dots using  Creative Paperclay.  I stuck them on while the tissue paper was still a bit tacky to ensure they stayed put.

To finish it off I painted the polka dots and added a few more layers  of gloss varnish mixed with a pearl pigment powder.
A quick and easy project, with awesome results.
