How To Paint A Heart Vase

How To Paint A Heart Vase

Hand-Painting Heart Vase

I’m hand-painting a heart vase today. The vase I’m making has scattered hearts in three sizes. I created heart-shaped stencils to use. I’m painting the vase with multi-surface acrylics. Once completed I will bake the vase in the oven. The paint will harden and become permanent. I can fill the vase with water and not worry about the paint coming off. It will become dishwasher safe top shelf. However, I suggest hand washing to retain the beauty of the paint colors.

I bought the 7″ vase from Dollar Tree. The paints can be purchased at Michael’s Craft store. I used FolkArt Multi-Surface or enamel paints.  I’m using berry wine, engine red and 14k gold colors. I am loving these paints. They work really well with my new glass painting hobby.

It’s funny the first thing my mom said is “I love that!, Where’s mine!”.
