Gather these supplies and we’ll get started. I have provided two methods of applying the paint and will tell you my preferred method. I also have a comparison between acrylic and chalk paint. The acrylic paint I used was from Walmart.
- rubbing alcohol
- mason jar
- acrylic or chalk paint
- sponge or brush
- embellishments of your choice

Time to Distress the Mason Jar
Try Using a Brush to Paint the Mason Jar
I used the brush again to apply the chalk paint. It went on just as good as the acrylic paint. This is only one coat also. Distress with the sand paper and they are ready to decorate. The chalk paint was much more difficult to sand off to distress it. In the end, I find the acrylic paint applied with a brush is the best way to paint a mason jar.
