You’ll also need
- Sharp knife
- Cutting board
- Measuring tape
- Construction adhesive
- Medium-grit sandpaper
- Plastic container
- Bicarbonate of soda
Remove screw eye pins from 2 curtain rings and cut in half using a sharp knife.
Use a measuring tape to find locations for handles on opposite sides of the vase, and mark. Trim rings if needed so their edges sit flat against the glass. Apply construction adhesive to the ends of 1 curtain ring half.
Press ring half against vase and hold in place until adhesive grabs. Repeat with remaining ring halves. Let adhesive set.
Sand glass vase to create a key for the paint to adhere to. Remove sanding dust, then clean glass with acetone. Make sure handles are clean, too.
Put 250ml paint in a plastic container, then scoop in 1 teaspoon of bicarb soda and mix.
Using a paintbrush, apply 3-4 coats of paint mixture to glass and rings, leaving to dry after each coat. You need this many coats to achieve a textured effect. Leave overnight so paint dries completely.
