Siamese Twin Vase

Haha, yes I know this is just a ridiculous BEFORE picture, but I forgot to take one so I quickly did a paint over in photosuite to give you an idea what this thing looked like.  It was actually a little more brown than orange originally, but at any rate it really grabbed my attention at a flea market one day and I couldn't leave without it.  Just curious, is this something that would grab your attention??  Or maybe I had a Siamese twin that never developed and so I have this longing for...... ohhhh I'll stop that train of thought right there before this gets creepy.
Introducing..... Painters!  I LOVE THESE THINGS!!!  Too bad they cost a fortune for the very small amount of paint each one of these little canisters  contains.  I've tried refilling them, googled how to refill them, stood on my head hoping to refill them and still not having success.  So if you've done this, please let me know a sure-fire way to get 'er done!!  So why I'm bring up painters?  Well, I painted the vase black (actually my 3 year old did, he wanted to paint something "adultish" and I figured he couldn't go too wrong with lots of newspaper for drips, a small brush and paint.)  Then I used my blue and green painters to make the following design........

I personally think it's a crazy fun little piece.  I have friends who have voiced a different opinion, not in a rude way (sheesh, I wouldn't be your friend if you were rude to me, haha) but just didn't dig it AT ALL.  But hey, good thing we're all different.  I don't think I could live with another Kammy on the planet, could you?  Don't answer that!
