How to decorate a vase with your own hands - decor ideas

Decor vases with their own hands

Each mistress dreams of having an unusual and suitable thing for her interior. Particularly nice when this thing is done by own hands. Stained glass on the glass always fascinated me. It turns out that decorating a vase with your own hands at home is possible. The main thing is to determine the degree of complexity of the work performed and to relate it to your capabilities. If decorating vases for you in a novelty, then I advise you to start with simple work. Let's start with a simple technique - applying geometric patterns.

  • Acrylic or stained glass for glass surfaces. You can also use spray paint;
  • brush (we use synthetic for acrylic paints, natural - for stained glass);
  • Scotch;
  • alcohol;
  • wool.

Cute Vases

Technique of drawing:

  1. Degrease the glass surface with alcohol or any degreaser;
  2. We paste the vase with strips of Scotch tape creating a pattern for it;
  3. We paint the parts without scotch, stopping at it. This is necessary to ensure that the edges of the picture are neat.
  4. We expect the paint to dry out. At this time, the vase is best removed to avoid accidental touches and lubrication of the paint. Each paint dries in different ways, read the instructions on the paint package.

In this technique, a wide variety of patterns can be achieved from parallel lines to various intersections. You can also cut out various geometric shapes and paste them on the surface of the item being decorated. Do not apply a thick layer of acrylic and stained-glass paint to the surface, as this can cause streaks.

Decor vases with spray paint

For the first job I do not advise you to choose round shapes, it's more difficult to work with them. Faceted vases fit better. We work with one face, we wait for its full drying and we pass to the following. The simplest is the work with spray paint. It is applied in a uniform layer, the spray-paint dries very quickly. As for the stained-glass paints, their drying time can be significantly reduced. For this it is enough to put the painted vase in the oven for 15 minutes at a temperature of 150 degrees.

Vase with irises

I used two types of fillings: Marabu and Decola. They work differently in different ways and in their work, respectively. The Decola paint was in a water-based tube. And Marabu on an alcohol basis in a jar and it is necessary to put it with a brush. It is more liquid and can be mixed to get different shades. Decola paint can not be mixed, so the shades and transitions in one circuit with this material are more difficult to perform. Color transitions can be performed by breaking one contour into smaller ones.

Do not leave voids in the contours when painting and make sure that the contours are closed. This is done so that the paint does not leak. I would advise to start to take faceted vases because working with them the easiest. If you still started to work with a rounded vase, then try to apply a thin layer to fill to avoid leakage of paint.
