Beginner’s Guide: Bottle Painting Ideas

How fun it can be to grab all the crayons, glue, glitterati, paints and let their creativity shine to create art. These fun activities can be done in your house itself and quite easily actually if one has certain products with themselves. You just need the sparks of inspiration to get going with all the colors around and experiment with them to get crafty art.

‘Do It Yourself’ is the craft where one can style the products in a more beautify and modifying way. But did you ever wondered what if you paint those empty wine bottles with all acrylic paints around? Bottle painting is one of the trendiest crafts around to experiment with.

Bottle Painting

One usually stores the empty bottles and jars for longer times than expected. Why not mix and match them with your favorite watercolors, decorate them with the fairy-lights inside to light it up at night and voila! There you have one of the most eye-catching decors ever. You can even make a hanging bottle vase, glass bottle terrarium, wine bottle chandelier, etc.
Among the various aspects that painting allows you to cover, some of the greatest benefits integrated with painting are: Painting can help your children communicate their emotions or feelings better. Through the use of different colors, they can express themselves without the use of words.

How to do bottle painting:

Step 1
– Remove any labels, then clean the jars. (Peel off any labels or price tags first.)

-Wash the jars thoroughly with soap and water, then pat them dry.

Step 2
– Apply the first coat, let it dry, then apply the second coat.

-It should take about 20 minutes for the first coat to dry.

Step 3-

– Once the jar dries, you can flip it over and apply 2 coats of the same paint to the bottom.

Step 4-

– Seal the jar with 2 coats of acrylic sealer. The finish you use is up to you.

– Use a glossy sealer for a shiny finish. If you distressed the jar, satin or matte sealer would look better.

Step 5 –

– Allow the sealer to dry and cure before using the jar. Because you only painted the outside of the jar, you can use it as a vase for fresh flowers.

– If the jar gets dirty on the outside, wipe it down with a damp cloth. Never scrub the jar or leave it standing in water, or the paint will come off.
