    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • rubbing alcohol
    • clear glass vase
    • E6000 Glue
    • glass bowl
    • paintbrushes
    • dry rag



    Let dry between steps.

    Wipe down the glass vase surfaces with rubbing alcohol before painting.

    1. Paint all three vases entirely in Lace.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Apply Clear Creme Wax to the entire vase surface. (This will keep the Golden Brown Creme Wax from immediately attaching to the chalky paint and staining the surface too deeply when you apply it next.) Use a dry rag to apply Golden Brown Creme Wax and wipe it away, building up to the desired aesthetic.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Paint the bowls individually in Colonial, Remembrance, or Victorian.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Apply E6000 Glue around the lip of each vase and adhere it to the inside center of each bowl.
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Use a pouncer and Lace to add dots to the bowls.
    10. Instruction #5
    11. Add a second set of smaller dots in Lace with a smaller pouncer.
    12. Instruction #6
    13. Using the same method described in Step Two, use a pouncer to apply Clear Creme Wax and then Golden Brown Creme Wax to each of the dots.
