Beautiful Vase / February 6, 2019 / Salma Pope.
The teacher was eager to see the outcome of this studious and thoughtful work of the student. Thinking that this would be the most stunningly beautiful drawing, she had imagined the things that she could say to reward the inspiration of the young artist. But when the page was in her hands, she stared quietly in confused silence.
Next, dip the string in your fuel source and then tie it around the bottle at the spot where you would like to break the glass. Then, light the string, rolling the bottle around slowly (kind of like a rotisserie chicken) for about 30 seconds. It's important to note that the string must catch fire. This means an open flame. Reminder: You should only attempt doing this outside and with a fire extinguisher handy, just in case.
4. Another way of decorating the eggshell vase is to decoupage it with colored tissue paper. It is a process of gluing pieces of paper, pictures and other thin materials to an object. Through the use of many layers of the glue medium, the finished product appears as though the work has been painted on, instead of simply glued on.
After several more days had passed, the teacher made a concerted effort to discover the person who was gradually altering this artwork. She had watched carefully in the morning and afternoons, but had been unable to catch the vandal at work. She decided to check on the room during the playground break, and was amazed to discover the same little boy as he walked quietly and diligently to his desk in the classroom. He carefully selected a handful of crayons, and then pulled the teacher's chair up against the wall beneath his drawing. Concentrating and gently biting on the tip of his tongue, he colored in the last of the fissure at the top of the vase. Then, he pulled out a green crayon and drew a long stem from the top of the vase, a stem that nearly reached the top of the paper. At the top of that long stem, he began to lovingly create soft orange and yellow petals. The boy completed his task without a word or a glance to either side. He was completely absorbed in his loving craft.
