Wear protective gear

Before you begin spray painting mason jars, it is important to take the necessary precautions to protect yourself from the fumes and the paint itself. First, you will need to gather all of the necessary protective gear, including a face mask, gloves, and a protective suit.

Once you have all of the gear, you will need to put it on properly. The face mask should cover your nose and mouth, and the gloves should cover your hands. The protective suit should be zipped up and cover your body from head to toe.

Once you are properly outfitted, you can begin spray painting the mason jars. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area to avoid inhaling the fumes.

Clean the jars

First, remove any labels or stickers from the jars. Next, wash the jars in warm soapy water. Finally, rinse the jars in clean water and allow them to air dry. Once the jars are clean and dry, they are ready to be spray painted.

Sand the jars

To sand mason jars before spray painting them, follow these steps:

  1. Begin by cleaning the jars with soapy water and a sponge. This will remove any dirt or grime that could prevent the paint from adhering properly.
  2. Next, use a piece of sandpaper to roughen up the surface of the jars. This will help the paint to stick better.
  3. Once the jars are sanded, wipe them down with a damp cloth to remove any dust.
  4. Finally, spray paint the jars as desired. Be sure to use a primer if you want a smooth, professional-looking finish.

To apply paint coats on mason jars with spray paint, begin by sanding the jars to create a smooth surface. Next, apply a primer to the jars and let them dry.

Once the primer is dry, apply the spray paint in light, even coats. Let the paint dry between each coat. Once the jars are fully painted, let them dry for 24 hours before using them.


There are a few things to consider when deciding what kind of paint to use on mason jars. First, think about the purpose of the jars. If they will be used for storage, then you’ll want to use paint that won’t chip or peel. Second, consider the color of the paint. If you want the jars to be a certain color, then make sure to get paint that is that color. Finally, think about the finish of the paint. If you want a glossy finish, then get paint that is labeled as glossy.

Spray paint can actually stick to glass jars pretty well – as long as you prep the surface properly first. If you don’t prep the surface, the paint will likely just peel right off. To prep, the surface, start by cleaning the glass jar with soapy water. Then, use fine-grit sandpaper to rough up the surface of the jar. This will help the paint to better adhere to the glass. Once you’ve prepped the surface, you can go ahead and apply the spray paint. Just be sure to use light, even coats, and give the paint plenty of time to dry in between coats.

Spray paint on mason jars takes about two hours to dry. This is because the paint needs to adhere to the glass and cure properly. If you are in a hurry, you can use a hairdryer to speed up the process. Just make sure that you don’t hold the hairdryer too close to the jars, or you could end up melting the paint.

No, you don’t need to prime mason jars before painting. Mason jars are made of glass, which is a non-porous material. This means that the paint will not be absorbed into the jar, so there is no need to prime it. You can simply paint the jar as you would any other surface.

Summary of how to spray paint mason jars

In conclusion, the most important things to keep in mind when spray painting mason jars are to seal the jar and handle carefully, apply a light coat of paint, and don’t overdo it with the paint.

Spray painting mason jars is a great way to add a decorative touch to your home or garden. It’s a simple DIY project that you can do in any color you want.
