Using the Sponge brush to painting on glass was wonderful.

Goes on smooth,

Simply brush on the Mod podge as I mentioned earlier,

I did TWO coats

and in between the first let it dry for about 30 minutes.

Then

I took my Rit dye

straight up from the bottle

poured it in a small cup

and painted straight up on top of the DRIED mod podge.

Can you hear the angels singing???

I did:)

    I love this project Debbie! Your vase is beautiful. I think the color orange has to be one of my most favorite colors. I’m going to have to try this myself. With the weather turning cooler I am always looking for something to keep me occupied :)

    That project rocks! I’ve never used modge podge. Boy am I behind when it comes to crafting! Must be that full-time that I used to work at for 18 years. Now that I have time, I’ll have to try it. I can completely redo my vases now to match my decor! You make it look so easy.

    I love that orange colour, so autumn! And how easy is this project? I almost picked up some Rit dye at Michaels the other day, but couldn’t make up my mind on what colour to get and my cart was already 1/2 full. I have to get some, your projects are so amazing!
