Tinting Glass

When you think horror prop tutorials it's a good bet that the home design site Fancy That doesn't pop immediately to mind.  But their tutorial on color tinting glass bottles is ideal for anyone doing specimen jars.  The technique is cheap, easy, and all the things they view as negatives, like streaking and mottling, are actually positives from an aging perspective.

this technique is good for dry storage but filling the jars with water eventually turns the glaze totally opaque concealing your masterpiece totally.However a clear or coloured oil does not affect it at all,maple syrup with a little black grit or charcoal makes a nice oozy goop.
