How to make a terrazzo print vase
Upgrade a plain vase with masking tape and a coat of paint
Bring a splash of colour to your home with this speedy upcycling project. Unleash your creativity with this vase revamp and transform a lacklustre piece of homeware into a statement accessory that will brighten up whatever space you put it in. All you need is a dash of paint, some masking tape and a simple design to get started.
You will need
- Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Lemon, Light Grey, Gold and Black
- Paint brushes
- Masking tape
Begin by taping a large triangle shape onto the vase. Create a clean line by smoothing the tape down, ensuring you have no gaps. Paint the first colour within the taped section. The colour used is Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Lemon.
If needed, apply a second coat. Remove the tape. Leave the vase to dry overnight before applying a smaller taped triangle.
Within the smaller taped section, apply Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Light Grey. Allow this to dry and apply a second coat if needed. Remove the tape.
With a small paint brush, apply random dots and strokes of Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Gold. Add dots and strokes to both of the painted areas of the vase.
Do the same with the Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Black – you want the marks to be irregular, so don’t think about it too much. Once all the paint is fully dry, fill the vase with a beautiful bouquet of dried grasses and wildflowers.
