How to spray paint a vase

Can you paint vases? Yes you can and it’s an easy and fun project with Pintyplus spray paints. Giving a charity shop find a makeover so that is more in keeping with your personal style is a win for charity shops and a win for the environment.

For this project we picked up two very different vases. The small one has a porous (unglazed) surface meaning it will absorb paints easily and the tall vase has a non-porous (glazed) finish meaning it needs a primer for paints to adhere properly to its surface.
