Painting a Glass Vase, Part 2

You comment and I listen! Last week, I shared a DIY for painting a glass vase. Lindsay commented and said,

“I have painted some glass vases before, but for some reason I didn’t think I could paint the outside. So I poured paint inside and swirled around until the whole inside was coated with color…”

Oh, wait. Well, that made me want to try it her way and, you know what? I liked it better!

My glass paint is too thick to swirl around, so I added water to it and brushed it inside. The water really helped so much! It gave it a milk glass effect that I really like.

Thanks for your great comment, Lindsay! I really liked your idea!

So there you go, friends! Go to Goodwill and get another vase!

Enjoying the Good Life,

Kendra

  1. I love how it turned out! 🙂

  2. I have painted many vases by spray painting the outside. I turned it upside down on a post and went slowly as not to have runs.
