So once again I am late to the crafty blogging party. There have been so many tutorials on painting vases, glasses, mason jars both inside and out that I just had to join in and show off my own creation.
For my creation I took a
vase, or rather a glass container from my recycling bin. I dropped in several drops of acrylic craft paint and a few drops of water. Then swirled the paint and water mixture around inside the container. It helped that this container had a top so I could turn the container all the way upside down to thoroughly coat the inside of the vase.
Once all the sides were thoroughly coated I let the vase sit with the top off for several days to allow all the paint and water to thoroughly dry. Once it was dry I added one of my favorite fake flowers in a bright contrasting color to really make the whole thing pop.
While I know that painting the interior of the vase means that I won’t ever be able to put water in the vase, I felt that by leaving it on the inside the finish was smoother and shinier than would be possible otherwise.
While I am very very happy with the results on this project, I can’t say that it was an easy thing to do. The paint often pulls itself off the walls while it is drying (maybe it shrinks?), it took a few tries to get all of the surfaces properly covered.
