False bottom in a jar?

Debra Thompson Woolf PolenzLizEdith Cort


I have a blue glass jar I would like to use for dog treats, but I find it a bit too deep. I want to add something to the bottom to fill it, but what? I don't want to use clear pebbles since the crumbs of the dog treats will fall through the cracks, and it will make the jar difficult to clean. I'm looking for something I can pour in and it will harden, ideally clear so it is not visible through the glass. Anyone know of anything that fits the bill?

    First thing that comes to mind is Gulf Wax. Mom used to use it to seal jelly jars and as I recall you wouldn't have to worry about it being so soft that it would contaminate your treats like jar candle wax might.

    You could put blue glass pebbles in the jar then pour the paraffin in to embed them but since it hardens white you would not see much of them.

    There is a 2 part clear epoxy that you can use. I would look for it at a craft store.

    why not keep the food in a plascic bag, secured with a rubber band below the lid

    How about a layer of dry dog food? When you hit the bottom of your treats, transfer the dog food to food container/bag and replace it to keep things fresh.

    The clear liquid that hardens looks like water is sold in the flower arranging department at Michael's and craft stores. You could use a half-price coupons to get it much cheaper. Or like the others I thought of just the clear wax just like what my mom used to seal the top of her drawers with, it's an expensive alternative I won't be a problem if you wash the jar or anything
