Spray paint , do light coats . Another method would be to put paint inside the bottle or jar, put more paint then needed , then turn to bottle / jar around to coat sides then turn it upside down to let it cost the whole jar have it raised, like on a cake cooling rack, so the excess paint can run out.
What are you going to use them for. If just for decoration pour paint inside and swirl it around to cover then pour out the excess.
I would use spray paint. It's my best friend! Just make sure not to over spray, it's easy to get drips.
The way I have done it in the past was dip the mason jar into the paint, tilt upside place on top of a old oven toaster rack or 2 thin pieces of wood let the paint drip off back into the paint can. no streaks.
I've painted them using spray paint and there are no brush strokes.
You can buy Rustoleum Chalked spray paint and the Rustoleum clear sealer that goes with this product. This is chalk paint in a spray can. You will get a very smooth finish!! I buy it at Menards. You DO want to buy the Rustoleum Chalked sealer--I tried just using another brand clear sealer and it made the paint bubble and crack.
I'm painting mason jars using chalk paint, I first started using a bristle brush and now a foam brush, I'm still having brush stroke Mark's, I've prepared the glass painted the first coat then the second coat starts to peel a little. I have used pre made chalk paint as well as making my own and this is still happening. If I put the chalk paint on the inside, then I wouldn't be able to distress the outside of the jar. I have even cleaned the jar then put coat of polyurethane on jar first let dry and used chalk paint and some peeled away in spots, but I just used those as distressed spots, but I'm still getting brush strokes.. I need some serious help to fix this
