Supplies needed for creating Frosted Mason Jar Picture Frames: (I used smooth-sided) mason jars of various sizes (I chose smooth sides) marbling medium (sapphire blue, turquoise and Aegean sea paint); craft sticks; disposable cups (nylon is best); cardboard sheets or sheets of plastic); black and white or color photos

How to make Frosted Glass Mason Jar Picture Frames:
Mix the marbling medium with the frost glass paint in 2 parts marbling medium:1 part frost glass paint mixture. Although instructions on the bottle suggest using 1 part marbling medium and 1 part paint mix ratios for optimal results, I wanted my frames to have a more transparent look so used less paint than recommended.
Stir thoroughly within a disposable cup using a craft stick before starting to mix your paint in it with three separate colors in an empty jar, dripping and turning as you go, to allow all three colors to merge and marble until your jar is covered completely with color.
Craft sticks can help spread paint evenly over all areas. Once painted, turn each jar upside down on top of disposable cups for overnight drying time before taking care to clean off excess dried paint from their tops if necessary.
