Here are the basic steps:

1. Using our AR Workshop smARt paint, brush on the paint to the glass vase of your choice. Allow to dry. (You can use a hairdryer on cool to speed up the process.)
2. For the next coat, dab on the paint for a more textured look. Allow to dry.
3. Dab on one more coat for the final layer. Allow to dry.
4. Next, take damp soil and brush on the jar lightly. Keep brushing on until you get an “aged” effect. Gently wipe off with a cloth or paper towel.
5. For an additional “rusty” look, sprinkle on some cinnamon and lightly blow off of the vase.
6. Add dried florals and wooden beads to complete the look.
