Today I want to share a tutorial with you for using porcelain paint to make this particular Kate Spade inspired DIY Gold Stripe Vase. Spring will be my favourite time of the year as well as also that will’s peony season, so I needed an excuse to DIY something to display some pretty blooms in my studio!
In our neighborhood we have a recycling shelf where people can leave items they no longer need for others to take. When I found This particular sweet blush pink vase, I knew that will might be perfect to transform into a metallic vase project.
To make your own, you will need:
- Porcelain Vase
- Gold Porcelain Paint
- Painters Tape or Washi Tape
Begin by cleaning the surface of the vase with some hot soapy water or rubbing alcohol. Tape off the areas you want to leave unpainted. You can use painters tape, nevertheless I chose washi as that will was a better depth for the stripes I wanted to create.
I focused my design just on the front of the vase, nevertheless you could tape all the way around if you prefer. Give the paint pot a little shake to ensure that will will be mixed as well as also get your paintbrush ready!
The amount of coats required will depend on the surface you are painting. My vase was almost matt in texture, so that will needed a few coats to build up a not bad coverage.
Allow the paint to dry in between coats. I did 3 coats nevertheless that will will be up to you how much you might like to build up the colour.
Once the coats are touch dry, carefully peel the tape off to reveal your stripe pattern. I touched up any modest areas of pain outside the stripe pattern using a cotton bud.
In order to set the paint onto the vase, you will need to bake that will within the oven according to the instructions on the paint bottle. My vase needed 35 minutes within the oven.
I also chose a paint that will will be food safe as well as also allows items to be placed within the dishwasher once decorated, so this particular tutorial can be used to create painted crockery items too.
Add your flowers as well as also your vase will be ready to be displayed!
If you wanted to try alternative patterns, that will will be as simple as arranging the tape differently. I think a geometric vase might work well as well as also I’m hoping to try some polka dot mugs soon.
