Glass vases and lanterns painting ideas

Ultra Violet, Colour of the Year 2018, is inspiring new creations and colour schemes

Beautifully shaped glass vases, lanterns and tea-light holders are perfect for decorating with your favourite patterns and designs. This time, we’ve chosen to use the Colour of the Year – Ultra Violet – which symbolises ingenuity, originality and inventiveness. Inspired by this deep purple shade, we went hunting and found the perfect colour in our range of gloss paint markers. Thanks to their opaque, paint-like ink, these markers are ideal for use when painting glass as well as on virtually all smooth, dark surfaces. The ink dries quickly, meaning you don’t need to worry about smudging or running. Simply decorate the glassware with dots and lines arranged in a pattern. We recommend washing your painted glass objects carefully by hand so your designs will stay looking lovely for longer.
