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.
