DIY Gold Dipped Vase

Yes, I really made a gold dipped vase. I've already mentioned that I'm not a gold person, but lately I find myself figuring out ways it can be used that don't look so bad. Okay, that look amazing. Like the little bit of gold on my new lamp.

I'm not sure where this vase came from. It showed up on my kitchen table sporting pretty pink roses around Mother's Day a few weeks ago. But now I have it and vases are a nice thing to have around. I decided it should stand out from all my other glass vases though.

And so, the vase and I took a trip out to my laboratory the shed and got started. I used Press and Seal wrap to cover all the glass I did not want to become gold and then used painters tape to hold it all down and make a nice clean line where I painted.

And now I am the owner of a gold dipped vase.

Update and Clarification

I have come to realize that my original post was not super clear about what paint I used. I apologize for this. This post went up on a day that I was dealing with a fussy, teething, toddler. Anyway, I used Krylon metallic gold spray paint to get the dipped look. 

I was out of spray primer but if I had to do this again, I would have sprayed primer on it first as the paint wanted to peel off with the tape. I just had to peel it off slowly and smooth the paint back down as I went.
