Coffee Container

Coffee Container

This project takes several steps, but the end result is something that you will be proud to set on your kitchen counter.

Clear glass jar
• Etching Cream
• Metallic Rub Ons set with Ruby
• 2 part stamp of Coffee Cup
• Coffee stamp
• Painter’s Tape
• Versa Mark Pad
• Metallic ruby pigment stamp pad
• Metallic Gold
• Gold Embossing Enamel
• Metallic Ruby Embossing Enamel
• Copper Pearl Ex
• Boss Gloss
• Heat Gun
• Alcohol Inks
• Frost glass spray paint

Take the jar and wash and dry it thoroughly. Next take your painter’s tape and tape off the center area about 2”x3”. Make sure your tape is completely sealed with no bubbles or crease near the inside of your 2”x3” box.

Take your Etching cream and cover the center area. Let sit for at least five minutes. Rinse off thoroughly and dry. Remove tape.

Take your Metallic Rub Ons and using a piece of paper towel, rub the ruby colored wax onto the etched portion for the glass. Do not worry about going over the edge of the etched area. The wax will not stick to the smooth portions of the glass. Let dry and apply two to three more layers of wax, allowing it to dry in between coats.

Ink up your bottom layer coffee cup stamp with you Vera Mark pad. Stamp on the colored area of your jar, making sure the finished design will be centered on the colored area. Rock gently back and forth making sure there is no slippage of your image. Brush Pear Ex over the stamped image. Heat with your heat gun.

Ink up your top layer coffee mug stamp with gold pigment ink. Stamp over your first layer, rocking gently in order to obtain a full stamp, again taking care not to let the stamp slip on the glass.

Using your Boss Gloss, thoroughly coat the image and waxed area. Coat with UTEE. Heat and melt UTEE with your heat gun, taking care not to hold it too close to the glass so your previously embossed area does not lose shape.

Take your Coffee Word stamp and ink it up with your metallic ruby pigment in. Center this over the top of the finished coffee cup image, allowing it to slightly overlap the colored area of the image. Coat with ruby luster embossing enamel. Heat with your heat gun, again taking care to keep it as far as possible from the image as you can while still melting your enamel.

Take the lid of the car and apply alcohol inks in butterscotch, cranberry, and copper with ink applicator. When applied to your liking, spray liberally with the frost spray paint, allowing paint to become thicker in some areas than others. This will give an aged look to the lid.

This jar can be cleaned with mild detergent and a soft cloth or sponge. Do not put in dishwasher or submerge in water.
