Materials  Needed:

– Martha Stewart Satin Paint {any color}

– Martha Stewart Pearl Paint {coordinating color}

– Martha Stewart Glaze Medium

– Bud Vases

– Ziplock bag

– Small cup


  1. To prepare the paint, combine 3 parts paint to 1 part glaze medium in side the Ziplock bag inside the small glass. The bag is to protect the glass and it also makes storage and clean up just a zip away!
  2. Dip the bud vase into the paint and submerge to your desired point.
  3. Hold the vase gently tapping it over the glass of paint for about 10 minutes. This will gently knock off excess paint and will allow for the paint to dry just enough so that you can place the vase upside down in order for it to dry completely. Carefully watch that the paint doesn’t start to drip down onto the clear part of the glass. You may need to hold it upright a little longer so that the paint can dry a little more.  More step-by-step photos at Whipperberry.
  4. Once that layer of paint dried completely, repeat the process with the pearlized paint from Martha Stewart Crafts.   Dip the vase halfway up the original paint line to create the second layer.
