Re: Textured vases

Beautiful work, @LorenaDIYS! I love a bit of terracotta upcycling myself.  

 

You should try adding some white grout for an attractive look and texture. The sandy particles are a really neat addition. Also, have you tried Crommelin Liquidstone? I know half the fun is mixing your own colour, but I found the finish quite convincing.

 

Here's a wall niche I made using white grout. I love the texture and rusty look. Obligatory shout out to Geneva Vanderzeil for the idea.

 

Many thanks for sharing.

Hi @LorenaDIYS

 

Those are really attractive finishes on those vases. If you ever find yourself looking for other special effects you can apply the Dulux 300g Duramax Black Marble Effects Spray Paint. If you want to achieve that marble veined look this product is the one to use.

Hi @LorenaDIYS

 

I also recommend checking this featured project - D.I.Y. cement planter pots by @hannah. It's also a great option for you to apply your painting technique plus you can make custom-made vases.

Love your work. I could go nuts with a project like this but with plant pots ha-ha

Well done.
