Ming Vases in Room 13

As part of our study of China, we learned about Ming vases and created our very own!


Here’s how we did it:

To achieve the porcelain effect we first coloured our vases blue using oil pastels and then painted them using white chalk paint and used the reverse end of our paintbrush to etch our own designs and reveal the blue colour beneath the paint.


Ming Vases are made from Porcelain and have been sold for up to €1,200,000! Each design can be different and tells a story. Look closely at the designs on our vases and see if you can figure out the story it tells!
