DIY Galaxy In A Jar

Hey lovelies, I got a lot of positive feedback from my last tutorial: DIY bubbly lava lamp and I wanted to make another one. Here goes! 
Materials needed: 

  • Mason jar
  • Acrylic paints (in the colors you want in your galaxy) (I used four colors) 
  • Cotton
  • Silver glitter
  • Holo stars (optional but recommended) 
  • Containers (to mix paint, one for each color paint you have)
  • Mixing stick 
  • Water 

Directions: 

  1. Add some paint to your water - one color per container. If you want to make a pastel galaxy, don’t add too much. 
  2. Mix the water and the paint. If you think the color isn’t bright enough, add more paint. 
  3. Take your cotton and fill the bottom part of the mason jar. I find it easier if I unravel the cotton before padding it into the bottom of the jar. Pad the cotton into the jar based on how many colors you’re using. For example, if you’re using four colors, divide the jar into fourths. 
  4. Add the glitter & stars around the cotton, evenly dispersing it. 
  5. Choose one container of your paint & water and pour it into the jar slowly. Do this little by little, and if you think you have too much water, add more cotton. 
  6. Repeat this process with the other colors after adding cotton to separate the layers. 
  7. Once the jar is full, top off the top layer with cotton. 
  8. Use a wood stick to move around the glitter and holo stars a bit, or press down on the cotton to merge the colors. 
  9. Voila! You’re done! 

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial; I’ll do more once I get more requests!
