Paint Express Is giving you the Tips and Tricks for: DIY Coin Inspired Vases.
You will Need:
1 x Old vase, the size is completely Up to you!
Coins- You can choose to keep the theme of one coin, or using a whole bunch
Decorations such as Rope.
Step 1: Paint the vase over in Annie Sloan Chalk paint, with the colour of your choice.
Step 2: Glue the Coins onto the vase in the arrangement that best suits you
Step 3: Allow vase to set
Creative-Idea: Using different currency coins on your Coin Vase
Tip: If you have done a lot of travelling, or travelling might be in the cards for you, a grate way to remember all the places that you have been to, would be to decorate your vase with different currency coins.
Decorating Idea: Your Vase can Have more than coins
Tip: A really authentic and modern finish for your vase: decorate the bottom half of your vase with Rope glued around from the bottom to just over half way. Decorate the top half with your coins for a different finish.
Antique Idea: Use a crackling
Tip: To give the under paint of your vase a more antique look and feel, paint your vase with a base colour, Then add a coat of another colour or shade on top of your first coat.
Finally paint a coat of crackling over the two layers and watch the magic happen.
Finish this look off with a light gloss or Matte (depending on your preference) over glaze.
