I'm still trying to organize my craft room. I came across these glass lamp parts. They were heading for the trash. I had every intention of tossing them out. I tend to hang on to things, thinking I'll use them on a project. So, into a box they go, ready for the next trash pickup. Every time I passed them, I would look at them. Then I noticed the lattice beading in the glass. Ding, ding, ding!!!
So, out comes the paint. I clean the vases. Yes, now they are vases, not lamp parts.
They have a hole in both ends, so I tape up one end and get to work. These were too pretty for just any paint. I used my metallic paints in shades of peridot, ice blue, silver sterling and pearl white. I flipped them over to drain the excess paint and let them dry completely.
I love how they turned out. The metallic paints were perfect for these little gems. I am so glad I didn't throw them out and found a new purpose for them.
till next time...........
