Faux Cracked Glass Jars

4 Materials
The jars look pretty similar. On closer inspection, you will notice the difference. I found this idea from hometalk website. Thank you Toni Scott Daniel for this tip.
I tried Toni's idea, and I also did my own version.
First, I drew patterns with glue and let it dry. The adhesive is dry when it is transparent.
Next, with the "lying crayon pen" rubbed the jar surface. Figures becomes visible.
The last step is to add the varnish, which makes the surface more durable.
I do not need to buy a ready-made jars, because I can do them by myself.ow it looks like a cracked glass jar.
