DIY: Paint Swirl Vases
So, you’ve gotten your hands on a nice-looking vase, but now you’re wondering what you’re going to do with it. The vase has a fantastic shape and is made from some high-quality material, but it’s just missing that fun splash of color that would transform it from something nice into something incredible.
Why don’t we fix that issue with a bit of paint?
However, painting the inside of a vase sounds like a lot of work, doesn't it? More importantly, some of you who are less artistically inclined might be nervous about trusting in your ability to paint something beautiful. That's all right though; you don't need much artistic talent to create this beautiful paint swirl vases. It won’t even take that much effort either with how much the paint does the work for you. So why don’t you take a few minutes to see how easily this can be done?
- You won't need much to complete this project. All you'll need for your vase is paint and the vase itself. Some acrylic craft paint will do the job wonderfully, but we suggest that you get a few different colors and shades, that way you can bring this creative craft to the next level with some beautiful color combinations.
- Well, now that you have everything you need you can get to work. You're going to start by adding a few drops of paint to the bottom of the vase and then adding a drop or two from a different color or shade. With the paint inside, start to rotate the vase so that the paint inside will move around the vase. You don't want to move the vase too quickly; otherwise, the paint won't end up sticking to the side.
- Now you’ll continue adding paint twisting the vase around until you’ve managed to cover the entirety of the inside. If you find that the craft paint is too thick and isn’t moving, you can add a few drops of water to loosen the paint up. However, don't add too much; otherwise, the paint will become too watery and refuse to remain on the side of the vase.
- Drain the excess paint out from the vase by holding it upside down over a paper towel. Once you’ve removed all the excess paint, lay the vase down on its side so the paint doesn't drip out while it's drying. You'll then leave the vase alone for 24-48 hours so that you can be confident the paint is completely dry. Once the paint's finished drying, you can get to work adding it to your décor.
