Vase with vintage charm
They used to be filled with perfume, flowers or spirits, but now the glass has become dull and flat – ready for the recycling bin. But with an eye for detail, the possibilities for a second life as a vintage object are revealed. Glass bottles or vases can get a completely new look with Marabu Chalky Chic. Sanding off the top colour layer gives the textured glass a unique charisma.
The vintage look is currently full on trend and with Marabu Chalky Chic chalk paints and the sanding technique it is really easy to achieve.
How it is done:
Prepare the glass surface – for an ideal result it should be free from grease and dust. Apply the desired shade, e.g. Mistletoe, Powder Pink or Edelweiss, with a brush. Leave to dry.
Now you can sand the desired edges with sand paper until the glass shows through again. Keep sanding until the desired used effect has been achieved.
Tip: A vintage bottle filled with flowers or homemade syrup makes a great hostess gift.
