Kitchen Soap Dispenser to Gold Dipped Bud Vase

Mike managed to break our kitchen soap dispenser approximately 5 days after we brought it home. It has been broken, though sufficiently functional, for well over a year. Maybe two. It’s hard to say. We recently came across a pretty wooden one to put this one out of it’s misery.

Though the pump was a throwaway, I still liked the crackle glass of the jar. I soaked the glass for awhile in water and then rinsed, and rinsed, and rinsed until all the residual soap was gone.

The top looks unfinished (because it is), so I decided to top the glass with gold. I pulled out my FrogTape® and placed it in a band below the opening.

I applied gold craft paint using an artist brush. It was an experiment, as I didn’t know how well craft paint would stick to glass. The verdict? It sticks. I wouldn’t send the thing through the dishwasher (probably wouldn’t hand wash it either), but the paint stays on.

It took quite a few coats to get good coverage. Before the final coat was dry, I removed the tape for a crisp line.

Now all it needs is summer, and summer’s wildflowers, to take a test drive as a real vase.
