Jack-O-Lanterns for Halloween
by Gale Johansen
I am trying to repaint some little glass Jack-O-Lantern hanging lanterns, the color they had came off after being damaged in a flood. I would like them to be as transparent as possible, a nice bright Halloween orange with a black trim for the face features; mouth, eyes and nose. They obviously do not need to be food safe and I can treat them as required but I don't think I can use high heat since I don't know their status in terms of being heat-sensitive or safe. I would like them to be colored as permanently as possible and would like to be able to wash them, by hand, as necessary.
There are so very many products available online but either they aren't suitable to this use or I can't find the appropriate color orange. I would appreciate any guidance you can provide so that I can tackle this project. I thought I might like them in clear but they really aren't nearly as effective on their little "Goblin Tree" as they were in orange. Thank you for your attention in this matter, I look forward to being able to get the paint and get them ready for Halloween and Samhain this year.
Sincerely and in peace,
