This new project is spot-on. Use rubber cement and paint to create a one-of-a-kind vase for your home.


Vase Rubber cement

We remember using rubber cement, the rub-off adhesive, back in our grade school days. Thanks to this new trend, you can relive those art class memories with an adult spin. Resist-printed vases are surprisingly easy to make. Follow along for instructions on using adhesive and paint to DIY a plain vase.


  • Vase
  • Rubber cement
  • Small paintbrush 
  • Plastic gloves
  • Multisurface acrylic paint
  • Round sponge


  1. Dip a small paintbrush into the rubber cement, and dot on desired pattern. Make sure dots are thick enough to find later. 
  2. Let dry.
  3. Wearing gloves, use a round sponge to dab a thin layer of paint onto the vase. 
  4. Let dry. 
  5. Locate the rubber cement dots and carefully rub off. 
  6. Bake according to manufacturer's directions.
