Epson Salt mason jar for candles

Recommended Posts

I coat a mason jar with coffee grounds and cinnamon and use modge podge to adhere it then I seal it with a spray. Works great!

Recently I read to try epson salt and modge podge.  Has anyone else tried this?  I tried this morning and its drying and seems wet.  I read that it will dry...not sure if it will.

Has anyone used this before?  Or something else to use that looks like snow.  I use these for my homemade candles that I sell.  The coffee grounds hold up but just need some feedback on epson salt.

Are you adhering the stuff to the outside or the inside of the jar? 

Outside. 

Since this post I have sprayed the end product with clear spray and the salt does not fall off.  I think I just needed to wait till it was completely dry.

I've used the coffee grounds/cinnamon before on tin can candles to make them look rusty/primitive. I've never thought of salt. It's so humid here, I'd be worried it would attract moisture.
