DIY Textured Clay Vase with paint & baking soda
I have been seeing so many vignettes with beautiful clay vases and pottery on Instagram lately. I have been searching high and low for some online and at our local Homesense and have yet to run across any.
Then I realized a lot of these pieces I am seeing on Instagram are hand painted! And the best part, its super easy to do yourself, with products you probably already have in your cupboards.

Materials for DIY textured clay vase
All you need for this sim please project are:
- 1 cup of water based paint aka latex paint or even craft store paint, just not oil based paint
- 1/4 cup of baking soda
- vase or decorative object to paint ( I want to try this on the bottom of a lamp too)
- paint brush
DIY textured clay vase technique
Mix your cup of paint and 1/4 cup of baking soda together. It will create a very thick chalk paint that will give you a beautiful matte finish and lots of pretty texture!
Apply the baking soda and paint mixture to your vase and let dry for a few min until slightly tacky.
For added texture take your paint brush once the paint is tacky and stipple gently all over your vase.
I only applied one coat of the chalk paint however you could definitely do two for more coverage and even more texture.
Make sure you keep your paint covered in-between coats as it dries very quickly.
Let your vase dry completely and thats it!
You could use this technique on almost any decorative object you want to breathe new life into!
