Step 1: Cutting and Shape

First take a piece a cardboard sheet. Now draw a sketch on it. Cut all pieces of vase . I assemble the pieces with the help of paper tape.For handle I used a piece of rope and attach.

Step 2: White Cement for Hardness

Make a mixture of cement or gypsum with water. Than cut pieces of soft cotton cloth . Dip the piece in mixture and place on cardboard bottle. Take one by one piece and do the same procedure .Let it dry. After dry the bottle , now apply a layer of cement on it. Again leave for dry. Rub all cement with sand paper when it become fine and smooth. Apply second layer like i did ,make finger lines. Use hobby knife to shape the texture.

For coloring I used Raw umber and burnt umber.Mark lines on upper side like I did.Now apply raw sienna on vase.At last spray mixture of PVA glue and water .

    Brilliant! So easy. One question. I'll assume this is for decorative purposes only with fake flowers because I didn't see you finish the inside. Could you have done so with a slip made of the same gypsum?
