Test Tube Vases

Test Tube Vases

Everybody has flower paintings on the wall, but what about real ones? All we need is a touch of creativity, canvasses, test tubes, the proper adhesive know-how and, of course, the main actors: some uniquely beautiful flowers set in glass vases! Framed by a pastel painting in graduated tones from white to magenta, as a nice addition to the pink surroundings.



  • Canvasses (40 x 50 cm, 20 x 40 cm, as well as two 30 x 40 cm)
  • brush
  • wall paint or varnish matching the color of the wall and a lighter tone from the same color family (alternatively, lighten the paint with white)
  • test tube vases
  • tesa® On & Off General Purpose Hook & Loop Coins, self-adhesive, white, ø 16 mm (2 pieces per vase)
  • tesa® Adjustable Adhesive Nail for Wallpaper & Plaster (1kg)

Time frame: 15 minutes per canvas + 2 hours drying time

How we do it:

03

Use the darker color for the inner part, paint on the still wet color edges and let them bleed into each other. This creates a color gradient moving from light to dark.
