I am thrilled to work as Plutonium Paint’s brand ambassador. I was compensated for my work, but the opinions in this post are 100% my own.
I’m glad the unicorn trend is still hanging in there, because I keep coming up with more ideas that are unicorn-themed. For my first project for Summer Mason Jar Week, I am sharing the simple tutorial for these unicorn mason jars. The bright, saturated colors fade in and out of each other in magical ways. And, you can do it all in minutes with spray paint!
Watch this short video to see how easy it is to turn quilted mason jars into unicorn jars. I publish two new videos each week, so hop over and subscribe to my YouTube channel for tons of fun creative videos.

The trick to getting the colors to fade in and out of each other is to keep the paint can about a foot away from the jar. This allows the paint to disperse more before it hits the surface of the jar. Then, when you hit the jars from different angles, the paint hits the angles of the quilted jar differently, giving the illusion that the colors are shifting.
