Glass vase (we used an IKEA CYLINDER vase) White spray paint Acrylic paints Paint brush Paper plate
Make sure your vase is clean and dry before beginning. Working in a well-ventilated area, protect a flat surface using an old sheet or newspaper, then spray the vase white. Start off with a thin layer, then repeat once or twice more to achieve an even coverage, leaving the paint to dry in between each layer.
Once dry, put together a paint palette on a paper plate, using bolder shades as well as lighter, softer tones like grey and white.
Use the paint brush to create tiny geometric shapes on the vase. Use abstract squares, rectangles, triangles and short stripes in different shades.
Paint some singular shapes, as well as shapes in pairs and trios, and continue until the whole vase is covered. Leave to dry thoroughly before using.
