How do I paint mason jars?



I am doing all the decorations for my brothers wedding and I am trying to paint mason jars. I painted a small one with old craft paint I had just laying around. Used rubbing alcohol first and it turned out great. I had to get new paint and I bought new larger jars. Now the paint is very streaky and anytime I try to do another coat the first coat peels,clumps up into strings. I even tried letting them dry for a full 2 days before trying again. I am using Apple Barrel matte acrylic. (It was very cheap) could i just need to use better quality paint or a semi gloss possibly?
