How to Paint a Vase With Baking Soda and Paint Technique
Here’s the one that I found at Goodwill for a couple buckets. The design was outdated, but the shape was perfect for what I needed on our picture ledge shelves.
How to Paint a Vase with Baking Soda and Paint
Step 1: Clean the vase.
Thoroughly clean the inside and outside of the vase using rubbing alcohol. Be sure to remove any price stickers, too.
Step 2: Mix the paint.
I didn’t have the perfect terra cotta color on hand, so I simply mixed some different colors together until I was happy. To get the terra cotta look, mix orange and beige paints in a cup.
Then, add about a teaspoon (or so) of baking soda to the paint and mix well.
Step 3: Paint the vase.
Using a paint brush, apply the paint to the outside of the vase in a single motion.
With this fancy baking soda and paint trick, you can breathe new life into just about any item, including jars, wine bottles, and plant pots!
