Golden Glass Vase

Golden Glass Vase

Make any room sparkle with this painted golden glass vase from Jacquard Products that is sure to please. This free and easy craft project is great for crafters of all skill levels. These simple glass columns are spiced up with a quick application of textured metallics — thanks to Pearl Ex and Sculpey!
 


 

Materials:

  • Glass vase
  • Aztec Gold Lumiere
  • Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments. I've used 3 colors on each vase. Suggested color combinations:
    • Spring Green, True Blue, Super Copper
    • Salmon, Sky Blue Reflex Violet
    • Super Russet, Spring Green, Aztec Gold
  • Use textured sheet of your choice for embossing I've used the Zebra Animal Print
  • Black or Pearl Premo! Sculpey — 60 oz. each
  • Small foam brush
  • Clay dedicated pasta machine or something like a rolling pin to flatten the clay.

 

Instructions:

  1. Wipe the PrintMaker with a damp cloth and lay the PrintMaker on a sheet of conditioned clay on the sheet. Either run both through the pasta machine on the widest setting or roll a smooth cylinder over the back of the PrintMaker to make an even impression.
     
  2. Apply Pearl Ex in random colors onto the sheet of textured clay.
     
  3. Tear the clay in small uneven pieces and collage them onto the glass vase - no glue is needed.
     
  4. When the vase is covered with clay pieces, bake as directed on the clay package.
     
  5. When the baked vase has cooled, wash a section of the vase with a layer of Lumiere. Immediately wipe the surface with a dampened paper towel. This will lift the Lumiere off of the Pearl Ex surfaces.
     
  6. Repeat Step 5 in sections until the vase has been entirely washed in Gold Lumiere.
     
  7. Allow to dry and you are done!

This is a spectacular vase and the artistic techniques are really innovative! If could see having these as part of a gorgeous centerpiece for wedding reception tables, or bridal showers, using the colors that would compliment or match up,with the bridal party colors. Or take it into deeper tones of reds and greens for the holidays. Another option is gluing flat bottomed glass pebbles or rhinestones to up,the sparkle factor! Great project!
