Strawberry Fairy Vase

By: Michelle Zulim for I Love to Create

This Strawberry Fairy Vase is a fun and simple painting project for the novice painter.  Great for holding branches or flowers (or even for serving fresh strawberries), this vase is great for a summer party and makes a lovely housewarming gift.  The painted strawberry is good enough to eat, and everyone is sure to be surprised and amazed that you painted it yourself!

Strawberry Fairy Vase

Materials:

  • Duncan® Concepts® Underglazes for Bisque in Light Kiwi and Neon Red  
  • Dinnerware Bisque Designs
  • Wavy Ice Cream Dish (28571)

  • Duncan® Pure Brilliance® Clear Glaze

Instructions:
