Craft Fail

Ive been working on alot of projects lately
one of these many projects includes..
a total fail..lmao

i recently found a tutorial on how to
decorate a vase using
Mod podge and food coloring
I found two cheap and plain vases laying around the house
Mix some food coloring into your mod podge creating your desired color
(i didn't realize it till i was done but i forgot to add a little water. mix needs to be slightly thin)
pour into your vase
spread throughout your vase by swirling it around
and pour out the extra
the whole inside should be coated
preheat your oven to its lowest setting
place your vases onto an old cookie sheet
and bake for an hour
when its done it will look like stained glass
i realized my mistake too late.
plus i ran out of mod podge ( didn't have alot anyways)
so i have an uneven coat, bubbles that formed and
the larger vase has extra that built up in the bottom
I plan on trying this again
i like the coloring of the orange one though..i like how it swirls..
when i find the original tutorial ill be sure to post it for you to try this.
