      I think you could try chalk paint as well, faster drying time. Make it yourself for 1/4 of the price.

    Did you add any water to the paint?

      No I used a big can of white paint that is right density. And I mixed it with other acrylic paint.

    I'd using acrylic (water based) does the paint hold up for fresh flowers/greenery? And is it toxic to the plants? Meaning will they die faster being in the water with paint inside the bottle. This method looks so much nicer than paint on the outside!

      They make plastic flower keepers. you could put the flowers in one of those then put them in the vase. if your jar is wide enough another glass or plastic container would work s well
