- Ceramic vases
- Rust-Oleum Universal Metallic Paint - Gold
- Painter’s masking tape, Frog Tape
Wash the vases thoroughly with warm, soapy water and leave to air dry, or as a quick method wipe the surfaces with nail vanish remover. Depending on the size of the vases the piece can be dipped straight into the paint can, or if a little more space is required, pour the paint into another container; we used a dessert bowl lined with cling-film to make clearing up easier.
Dip the base of the vase into the paint at an angle. Hold the vase over the bowl of paint and allow to drip, then use a paintbrush to remove more paint from the base of the vase. Hang the vase, again using the masking tape, from the edge of a table or a pole, laying plenty of newspaper underneath to catch any paint. Leave the paint to dry and follow the paint manufacturer’s instructions for perfect results.
