I picked up two tubs of air dry clay and some clay tools from Michaels.
Air Dry Clay Vase
I have been all about vase makeover lately and this clay one was super fun!
I had a tall sea-glass vase that I wasn’t loving anymore so I thought why not cover it in air dry clay and have some fun!
After dusting off the vase, I began putting the clay onto the vase. It stuck really well.
I kept it at an even thickness and didn’t do it too thick or thin to try to avoid cracking.
Once the whole vase was covered, I added some light water to it to try and smooth out the clay.
I then began doing a pattern with my clay tools. It was in no way perfect, which is what I love.
I let it dry overnight, it still wasn’t quite dry, but I applied some cream chalk paint.
The paint went on so well and you could do any color or add a darker color in the cuts to add more depth.
Here’s a close up of the texture on the finished vase.
I love how it turned out and I am now obsessed with clay and can’t wait for my next project!!
