Easy Geometrie – with Marabu Aqua Color

This pretty vase is ideal for the first blossoms of the season. The pastel watercolour effect is created by using the Marabu Aqua Colour Graphix colours and lots of water. If the dodecahedron does not stick together, you can also send it to the recipient in an envelope with your best wishes. The recipient can then easily put together the vase at home in just a few steps. The highly pigmented watercolour paint flows in soft transitions and is best used on a watercolour pad.
