First day of Moroccan month

September 1, 2010

It is Moroccan month again – hurrah! Last year when I started this blog I made September Moroccan month because of my love for anything Moroccan and then I was drowned in work. So this year we get to do it again – but much better.


So I start out right away with a new glazed vase. Sort of. So you see that blue glazed vase up there all the way on the left. I wanted that. But I had this. It is one of those vases you usually get for free in your florist shop.

Plain old florist vase
So my question was then – can you paint glass with ordinary latex paint? Only one way to find out.

Second coat
I added a line of gold paint at the bottom and at the top – some flowers – and done! Just keep in mind that the paint will not survive a dishwasher wash or too much scrubbing.

    the vase looks so beautiful …I would have equally loved it a winish type of red; what a great idea! Question Louise: did you add any kind of layering before painting the vase? something like paper? Tnks

    Nope – no layering – I just went right ahead and painted. I am sure it would be very pretty in red as well! If you do it send a picture so we can all see it 🙂
