Find the logo and tape directly above it and on both sides of it; flip the jar and tape the lip
1
This is the back of the jar; the outside edges of this tape will be where our paint shaping begins
2
Starting at one outer edge, tape a strip diagonally up to the center of the “front” of the jar
3
Repeat on the other side; it should look like a triangle with a rounded bottom
4
For a rounded top, add an extra piece of tape at the tip; smooth down all tape edges
5
Paint first layer with up & down strokes, going down over the tape, let dry and add 2-3 layers
6
If you don’t enjoy watching paint dry, use a blow dryer to speed it up
7
If not completely dry between layers, paint may pull off; gently add extra paint in the spot & blend
8
When done painting, and almost dry, peel off tape (dry paint can break off with tape)
9
Dip angled brush in acetone to loosen rough edges and scrape straight with something hard & pointed
10
Slowly paint a rounded crescent on top with an angled brush, pause to check symmetry
11
Add enough layers to top crescent to reach same thickness as the bottom; blend with short strokes
12
Remove remaining tape and spray with a clear (glossy or matte) top coat, let dry
