How to make

Step 1 

Pour out your chosen colours into a paint palette and decide what shapes you’d like to paint on the vases

Step 2 

If it will help guide your brush marks, very lightly mark out the shapes onto the ceramics. It’s best to use quite a lot of paint on a smooth, flat, brush as the line will be much easier to control and you will not have to go over the edge line more than once.

Step 3 

Brush the outline first and then fill in the rest of the first colour and leave to dry. If needed, add a second layer and leave to dry.

Step 4 

Brush the outline of the second colour and leave to dry.

Step 5 

Fill with flowers, real or artificial!
