Pinspiration Sunday: Colored Mason Jar

So I found a couple pins demonstrating how to color regular ol' Mason jars and the one I tried was from Six Sisters' Stuff. This one is made only using food coloring, water and Mod Podge...and then you bake 'em. I really liked how Elyse's turned out. Here are mine:
Here's what you need:
Mod Podge
Food Coloring
Wax paper
Baking Sheet
Paper plates and throw-away spoons 
 (Or whatever you want to use to mix the colored mod podge/water mixture up with)
Oven and oven mitts
Start by Preheating the oven at 200 degrees. Next, make your coloring concoction by mixing together 2 Tbsp of water with 4 Tbsp of Mod Podge and your desired amount of whatever food coloring you choose. I made one just red and the other I mixed equal parts of red and yellow to get orange.
Once you have your desired color made, pour your Mod Podge medley into the desired jar and swirl, turn, tilt until you have coated the entire inside. Then pour out the extra. Carefully wipe the rim if any of the coloring covered the outside. Place your jars upside down on to a wax lined baking sheet. Bake for 3 minutes.

Remove baking sheet. Wipe the jar mouths again for any extra liquid that may have accumulated and turn the jars upright. Place back into oven and bake until clear...Elyse says about 30-40 min. Mine were done a little sooner.
Pull them out and allow them to cool. Then decorate as you please!

**Special Note: Do NOT store any food products in these jars...Mod Podge is not food safe! Thanks :)
