Make It Monday: Enamels Glitter Gold Daisy Vase

Extreme Glitter Gold Glass Vase

You know how awesome our FolkArt Extreme Glitter is – but you also know that it’s not permanent on glass.  You’ve been asking us for permanent glitter on glass, and we’re delivering!  We are so thrilled about our new product, FolkArt Enamels Glitter.  It works just like regular FolkArt Enamels AND it comes in two colors, gold and silver.  The sparkling effects are gorgeous!  Plaid designer Julie Lewis has created this special daisy vase with Enamels Glitter, and you won’t believe how easy it is to recreate yourself.  Here’s how it’s done.

Gather These Supplies

  • Aquatic garden vase
  • FolkArt Enamels Glitter, Gold
  • FolkArt Enamels, Wicker White and Yellow Citron
  • 1 ¼” spouncer
  • #5 round brush
  • Craft knife and blades
  • Cutting surface (mat or piece of glass)
  • 1 ½” stencil or painter’s tape
  • 1” button
  • Pencil

Lay tape in strips on cutting surface.  Julie used a piece of glass, but you can also use a craft mat.

Lay button down and trace with your pencil (it took 28 circles for this vase).

Cut circles with craft knife.  Work carefully!

Carefully peel up the circles and place on the vase.  Julie lined the opening of the vase with circles, then placed circles randomly on the rest of the vase.

Tape off the bottom of the vase.

Apply Extreme Glitter paint evenly with the spouncer all over the vase, covering the sticker circles.  Make sure that you have covered every part of the glass (check thoroughly).

Your vase will look something like this when done – don’t worry, it’s going to dry clear!

Peel up the circles when the vase is still dry.  Use the end of your craft knife for easy removal – be careful not to get your hands in the wet paint.  Allow the vase to dry.  Use the tip of your craft knife to scratch off any glitter that bled under the tape.

Using Wicker White and your round brush, paint petals around the circles.  Start at the outer edge of petal and draw towards the center (picture a clock face and paint 12, 3, 6 and 9, then fill in-between).  Complete this step for each circle on your vase (not the ones around the rim).

Using the Yellow Citron, apply dots to the inside of the daisies with the end of your brush.  On the rim, add Wicker White dots as shown as the follow.  Follow the curing instructions on the product bottle.

  1. I would like to suggest a large circle punch with removable sticker paper for the dots if you plan on making more than one project.

  2. Hi. I was just reading through the instructions for the Enamel Extreme Glitter Vase. I think there is one mistake in it. It says to peel up the circles while the paint is still “dry”. I think you meant to say while the paint is still “Wet”. I may be wrong, but I think that is what you meant. Anyway I want to try the new Enamel Extreme Glitter so will be ordering it. Thanks. I like this blog that I have just found. Pat

    • You are correct! We must have gotten mixed up when we were working on that post because the project is is cool! When painting on glass, it is best to remove tape, stencils, etc. while the paint is still wet. If you happen to smear the paint into a spot you wanted unpainted, wait for the paint to dry completely and then use a craft knife to gently scrape the excess paint away. Great catch, thanks for pointing it out!
