DIY Paint Drip & Milk Glass Vase

Faux painting opens new doors to creative minds. There’s a very simple way to recreate the look and feel of milk glass on any glass piece using faux painting techniques.

What we need

– Clear glass vase  – Gold acrylic/craft paint  – White latex paint – Toothpicks/foam brush (optional)

Let's make DIY Paint Drip & Milk Glass Vase

1

Apply drip paint to the inside rim of the glass vase: To achieve the look of milk glass, all paint should be applied to the inside of the glass. This means you have to work backward, in a way, starting with whatever color you want as your dripped paint.

Spread excess paint to cover the entire glass surface: On this initial paint layer, the important part is what is seen from the outside of the vase (through the glass), not necessarily what is seen looking in.

2

Watch the paint drip: No, I’m not asking you to watch the paint dry. But I do want you to take a few minutes and watch the paint drip to make sure the paint spread is fairly even and that you’ve applied an appropriate amount of paint.

3

Wipe the rim: If your paint is dripping to your satisfaction, wipe off the rim of your glass vase.

4

Let dry: Set your vase in a safe spot, and let it dry thoroughly. This might take a few days, depending on the thickness of your paint.

5

Remove unwanted paint drips: Remember those paint drips that fell to the bottom of our vase, that we left alone? Well, they’ve dried now and are ready to be removed.

6

Add the main color of paint: Pour enough paint into the bottom of the vase to cover the bottom.
