- Mod Podge
- Sponge Brush
- Glitter (I used three different colors)
As for the inside, I used teal paint. The cool thing is you just squirt it into the vase and swirl it around a bit...then I used a sponge brush to help coat the sides. I saw a couple posts about thinning the paint and/or coating the inside of the vase to help the paint glide a bit better...I'll have to try that next time. I sprinkled a little glitter onto the paint right near the top of the vase for added ooommphhh (yes, that is a word).
The final step was to coat the entire outside of the vase and the inner rim with Mod Podge to seal/protect the glitter. Easy... Schmeazy and super fast! I really like the way the teal inside creates a nice undertone that you can see fom the outside.
I plan to try another with just paint....it's a bit counterintuitive to me to paint the inside versus the outside, but it's faster and less forgiving to do it that way; good to know. I've also read that if you wanted to use this as an actual vase, you probably want to place a plastic inner sleeve/cup into the vase to hold the water....or, just use it for a decorative piece instead.
Do I see some gift giving ideas in your future??? That's what I plan to do with mine. So go on-channel your inner VanGogh and have fun!
