To do this, pour the grits on a flat surface, protecting it with oilcloth or any other material, and completely cover the grains with different colors.
Acrylic paints are best suited for coloring cereals. It is also possible to apply paint in various ways, but the most convenient and quickest is to use a conventional sponge.

After that, the vase should dry well and can be used.
The same pasting can be done with other materials, such as cloth or paper.
