How can you decorate a glass vase by doing art painting on glass with your own hands
Painting glass vases is usually much easier to do than painting, for example, glasses. Firstly, these dishes are not used for food, which means that no special firing is required. Secondly, the surface of the vase is larger; accordingly, painting on glass in this case may be devoid of small details, the implementation of which requires professionally honed technique.
Painting a decorative vase at home can be done with masking tape, which protects areas of the surface from staining. In this case, transparent paints of two colors are used, which are gradually mixed with each other, which gives a lasting tone effect.

Step-by-step vase painting workshop:
The areas under the tape will remain unpainted, so try to place the details not too close to each other: after applying the paint, the pattern should stand out clearly even against a light background. Make sure each strip of tape is firmly adhered to the surface so that no paint can seep underneath.
Select the colors you need for painting the vase and squeeze a small amount onto the palette. Trying to get different shades of the same color, the paints will have to be diluted. Therefore, it is important to know if they are aqueous or thinner based. In the first case, add water to the palette, in the second - white spirit. Both paints used must be of the same composition. Add thinner to them until the paint is thin enough to easily apply to the work surface. At first, it can be difficult to achieve the right balance: if the paints are too liquid, they will simply flow. Test them on acetate tape by holding it vertically over a newspaper. If the paint runs off right away, it is too runny. Dilute the vase paint gradually; it is easier and cheaper to add thinner than paint.
Before washing the vase, carefully read the instructions for handling the paint with which it was painted. As a rule, such products can be wiped with a cloth - dry or slightly dampened in cold water. If you want the product to have a long service life, use a crystalline gel: after firing in the oven, the objects covered with them can be washed.
