I was not so crazy about the look of the mason jar, so I went with rounder jar for a more up-to-date look. The scientist in me was thinking of specimen in jar versus vintage. Various online directions I found suggested using olive oil or vegetable oil. I used what I had on hand - canola oil, some pictures from our last vacation, and clear glass jar.

I tried an iguana, not crazy about it.
So I tried some seaweed that had washed up on the beach. I liked this one better.
