Spring Primitive Apothecary Jars

You may remember my Primitive Apothecary Jars that I did a couple months ago. I made another set but with a Spring twist.

I painted them Peakaboo Blue by Krylon. Once they were painted they reminded me off a robins egg, perfect for Spring!
I gave them a good sanding to distress them. I then took DecoArt’s Glazing medium and mixed it with some DecoArt Asphaltum. Using a brush I painted the glaze on and after letting it sit for a minute, wiped it off.
Of course, since I was already thinking of robin’s eggs, why not add some? I added some Spanish moss for nests and some little blue eggs I found at Target.

If you looking for a tutorial please visit my original Primitive Apothecary Jars post! I used Gorilla Glue Epoxy (It’s my new favorite glue) with this set though.

Linking up to these great link party!
