Place some S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water).  It should be the consistency of a coffee cream.  Pour this into the jar and roll around to completely coat the interior of the jar.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep the jar inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
