Jam Jars - this fellow makes his cherry jam by painting first a background color and then his "cherries" on his base, and then coats thoroughly with gloss. Of course, you don't have to start with capacitors, as he does. It looks pretty good. In Russian; use Google Translate

Research/ Inspiration



  • use a paper brad as a jar lid (split pin objects which hold paper together)
  • use clear cylindrical beads, glue pictures of sliced peaches, pickles, etc., around the beads. Then dip the whole thing in some clear gloss, and then let them dry. Cut the puddle around the bottom, away with a craft knife. For lids; paint the tops silver and put silver automotive tape trim around for the screw part. Or top with cloth or paper covers tied with thread.
