A Simple Fall crafting project using thrifted glass vases.
Clear bottle is before painting, three in the back have been spray painted white already
3 vases of similar height/look
Gloss spray paint in white, orange, & yellow
Wash vases. The vases I used had been previously used in a craft. The crafter had used white glue & food coloring to stain the outside which easily washed off in hot, soapy water. If they are not dirty, at least wipe them down with white vinegar or alcohol to remove grease & fingerprints.
Spray entire bottle with several light coats of white gloss paint.
Once dry, spray bottom third of vase using a very light spray of yellow rotating the vase as you go. I place the vase on a lazy susan which makes rotating easy. Most of the white should be covered. A heavy coat is not needed. You are working towards a light, airy look with a smattering of the previous color intermixing with the next.
