This is the first memory jug I made. On this one when it was done I "stained " the whole thing using an oil based product to help the items blend together , giving the whole jug a more cohesive look.
I don't do it that way any more, I have decided that I personally like each item to just "be".
Doing it that way also takes a much longer time to dry, and I couldn't keep my hands off it,
so from me dabbing at it all the time trying to get it to dry, it's color is uneven.
I also have a really hard time with the sheen it takes on.
In the next day or so I will be trying something else over the top of this in an attempt to even out the color and take down the sheen. But I thought you might like to see how my very first attempt turned out.
Although this is a very large jug, (one and half gallon?) I think it gives you an idea of the large amount of bits and pieces
it takes to make one of these.
But then the search is the best part........
