Paint storage jars with spots
Jazz up storage jars by painting polka dots in your colour scheme
First mark the position of each polka dot on the storage jar with a lead pencil, to ensure the dots are evenly spaced around the jar. Then fill the tip of the paintbrush with enough paint to spot on the polka dot in one application.
When dry, bake the items in the oven at gas mark 2/150°C (140°C in a fan oven) for 35 mins, to make the paint dishwasher resistant.
