Tips when painting a vase
Both glass pot and old ceramic pot can be used
Use Bunnings Warehouse’s sample paint cans to save budget and choose various colors
As long as it is water-based paint, it can be used
Use as much sodium dicarbonate as needed to produce the desired texture
Also paint the inside, outside and bottom of the vase
Before adding another layer of paint, make sure all the paint is dry, otherwise it will peel off
Add as many layers as needed-the more paint you add, the more realistic it will look
