Hand painted Henna tattoo inspired glass vase, candle holder using glossies high gloss acrylic enamel

Hand painted henna tattoo style vase using glass enamel paint
I loved painting this vase i was going for a floral henna tattoo style & the patterns really worked well with the candle reflections.

Hand Painted Glass Vase

I got the glass paint from a craft store. The paint i used is called Glossies, its a high gloss acrylic enamel paint. I used black but they do all kinds of colours. East to use you just clean the surface of the glass & paint directly on. To set it on the glass leave to dry for 24 hours & bake in the oven for 45mins at 163 degrees.
This paint can be used on glass, ceramic & primed metal (not to be used on shower tiles or with food contact so not for plate decorating)

This is the design reflecting as a shadow from the candle light

I used a thick layer around the top of the vase, dripping it around the top edge

I love the layers you get from painting the entire vase, it gives a great effect
Flowers & symbols hand painted onto glass

I painted plant roots at the top & bottom of the vase
