Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the paint.
  • 2
    Wash and dry ceramic vases with soap and water. Rub each vase with rubbing alcohol and let dry.
  • 3
    Start each vase at the bottom. Tape off the bottom stripe on each vase, using photo as a guide for an approximate size. Pounce the color desired from one of those listed under supplies (Pacific Iris, Hydrangea Purple, Purple Yam and Lake Fog). Let dry. Apply a second coat if needed. Let paint dry and score the edge of tape with craft knife before removing tape. (Tip: Make sure not to apply tape over painted stripes; no matter how dry the paint feels it will still lift your paint.)
  • 4
    Work up the vase, applying tape only to the top of each stripe and rotating to a different color from those under supplies (Pacific Iris, Hydrangea Purple, Purple Yam and Lake Fog) but not used previously. (Tip: to create a clean edge where your new stripe and your previous stripe meet, place a piece of paper at the edge of your stripe and pounce to create edge. Hold and move the paper working around the vase.)
  • 5
    Let each stripe dry and work up the vase till complete.
  • 6
    Let dry completely for 24 hours.
