I am so happy to tell you about my new idea for my vases! Mind you, I have numerous ideas regarding them.. But most of them fall drastically short in the execution. I tend not to take pictures of those.. I would rather just move on.. lol..
Anyway, this idea sort of came in an a-ha moment. Last week, when I was picking through my inventory of vases, deciding which ones I will work on next. I realized some of them won't work, because I need the top of the vase to curve in, so you don't really see the inside of the vase too well, if that makes sense..It looks more finished without seeing the stucco, in my opinion. Anyway, so, I thought, well why don't I paint the outside of the vase. The stucco would then protect the paint, and voila - it worked. I was worried that the actually applying the stucco to the vase, would scratch the paint, but it did not. It held.
And I am so excited about these results. Now I can't WAIT to go vase shopping again. My options will be limitless.
Oh, and Yes.. I can not get enough of the stripes. I am kind of in love with painting them!
