Top tips:


Step 2
Step 3

Step one: Using Resene Quick Dry primer, paint a basecoat on the vases and leave to dry.

Step two: Tape up the sections for the stripes.

Step three: Paint the stripes using the Resene testpots, using our example as a guide.

As there are various colours, you'll end up painting some of the stripes and leaving them to dry, and then masking off for the other stripes and painting them. Remove the low tack masking tape and allow to fully dry.

Step four: Your vases are ready to be filled with the fresh seasonal flowers and foliage.
