Hi all!!! Okay, so I have seen a lot of people making their own milk glass or just spray painting colors on glass vases, lately. While it is nice, I remember knowing that the milk glass vases were glass and I had been wanting to try something for a while... So, I decided to test my theory…(while I love all the other vase projects I had seen) I wanted to see if I could do it the way I was thinking. I got this vase at our local Hospice Thrift store for $1.25.
I got some exterior acrylic waterproof white paint. I remember my Grandmother’s kind of looked like the “milk” part was actually in the glass. So, I used about 5 oz. of paint squirted in the bottom of the vase and then very slowly twisted and turned the vase so that the entire inside was completely coated in paint! It was exciting and kind of boring, if I'm being honest, I had to turn it for about 35-40 mins. Then turn it upside down to let the excess drip out.
I didn’t want to have to redo this process so I let it sit in a sunny window for the next 3 days…that paint was dry! I still wasn’t sure if I could really put water in it and have it stay the same, but I couldn’t wait to see it. So first I tried it with a beautiful bouquet of dried roses I had.
Then, the time came, I filled the vase 1/2 way and let it sit there for three days...It held!! The paint was unaffected! Woohoo! It had worked!
So I ran to the store the next morning and got these lovely blooms to put in it…Day 3 there still looking Lovely!! Just my version on an old look, but I really do like it!
Many Blessing to you all today and every day and Thank you so much for stopping by to visit my little blog.
