Pineapple Vase



The pineapple trend is one I love. I have so far embraced it with this Pineapple Dish and a painting of a pineapple in my kitchen, but I came across the perfect white vase to turn into a pineapple at Spotlight the other day, and couldn’t resist.

Here it is as a blank vase, purchased for $10. Bargain!



I already had the porcelain paints I needed for this job- paints in yellow and green and some leadlighting or cloisonné paste in black.



I started by taping off the neck of the vase and painting the base yellow in thick diagonal strokes







Then I removed the tape and painted the top in green, with vertical strokes.







 Next was to paint on the pineapple pattern! Using the leadlighting paste, I started by drawing leaves at the top in the green section.









Then I created a diagonal cross hatch or checked pattern on the base. It’s a little wobbly, but this is bespoke, so I’m ok with that!







Finally, a dot in each diamond to give the pointy pineapple texture, and we’re done.





To make this dishwasher safe, I baked it in the oven according to the instructions on the paint jar 35 mins at 150C.



Cool pineapples!
