Gold dip-dye vase

I love this trend I see all over of paint dipped objects.   I have the perfect humdrum vase to try this technique on.  I needed a vase with some flowers to put on top of my daughter's new dresser, so off I went to Michael's to pick up some faux flowers, they have a really nice collection.

I started this easy project with my latest craze, "Rub n Buff" gold metallic wax and a plain vase.  I used it on my wrought iron base here and on the hardware for my daughter's dresser here and I love the way it looks.

First, clean the glass really well

Then, tape around the vase

Rub the gold wax where you want to make it look like it is dipped.  You can use a thin cotton cloth or your fingers.  I used my fingers, it was difficult to take the paint off, but I used some nail polish remover and it worked like a charm. 

Love the way it looks with the flowers!  So pretty!

I can't wait to show you how it looks on top of my daughter's dresser.  I will be posting the finshed dresser this week.  I hope you come back to check it out.

Thanks for stopping by!
