So I thought I would try something a little different... a little DC related....
* Masking Tape
* Templates (if you can't draw freehand.. like me!)
* Silver Sharpie
* Chalkboard Spraypaint
* Toilet roll tubes
I used templates for the Superman and Batman logo as I'm no good at freehand - I leave that skill up to my partner (see his fabulously drawn TMNT head). I printed the images and placed the tape over them and cut them out.
Once the tape was in place I spray painted the bottles. I used toilet roll tubes to hold the jars and twist them whilst spraying and they also work as a holder whilst the paint is drying. Wait 24 hours at least before picking off the labels - I didn't! I am impatient! The finish is far better if you wait. Use a craft knife to pick off the tape and where necessary sharpen up the edges.
The Sharpie is for giving the edges a bit of....edge :-)
I liked the finish with the jars at the top of the page with the silver dots around the shapes so I did this for both Batman and Superman. Because the Superman Logo is far more detailed than Batman I felt the jars were too small to get away with this look; I found this out too late obviously so rather than dots inside I just filled the black sections in.
It's not perfect by no means, and if I were to recreate this jar, I first of all would use a much larger jar so I could use a much larger image and I would also wait the 24 hours before touching the jar again!
Batman I thought came out rather well, and for that he wins this round!
I do love chalkboard paint and forgot how much fun I have with it, so now I'm looking around the house again to see what else needs a facelift.......
