2. Once you get the shades you like, coat a glass with a layer of Modge Podge. Slip your fingers inside the glass and roll your covered jar in the colored salts until completely covered. Let dry.
Tip: If you want a little extra coverage, wait until the first layer of salt dries and repeat the process.
