Do you have many empty glass bottles in your house? If your answer is yes, the time has come to use those glass bottles for some creativity. If you have a creative mind, then you can use your creative mind to decorate and paint glass bottles. Decorated glass bottles can make your house look attractive.
You can use paints and many other different types of decorative materials to design glass bottles. But decorating a glass bottle not only required creativity, but it also required ideas. So if you are the one who has creativity but not any idea on how you can decorate a glass bottle, then this article is for you. Below, I gave five ideas that will help you to design and paint glass bottles.
1. Do spray painting on the glass bottles.
There are many things to do before starting spray painting on the glass bottle. First of all, you have to remove all the labels that are stick on the glass bottle. You can easily remove sticky tags from the glass bottle by soaking the glass bottle in hot water for an hour. After an hour, take out the glass bottle from hot water, and now you can easily remove sticky labels from the glass bottle.
Now the second thing comes in. You cannot spray paint on the glass bottle before making a design on it. To design glass bottle, you can use foam stickers. You can use any foam stickers like simple shapes or latter shape foam stickers.
Now the spray painting part comes in. Before starting spray painting, put a cloth or cardboard on the surface where you will do spray painting. Now start spraying the first coat. After finishing the first coat, check if there is a need to do a second coat of spray paint on the glass bottle. If you need a second coat of spray paint on the glass bottle, then add the second coat.
After doing spray paint on the glass bottle, wait 24 hours so the glass bottle’s paint can dry. Giving 24 hours for the glass bottle’s color to get dry allows the paint to be set entirely on the glass bottle. You can put flowers inside in the glass bottle to make the glass bottle look more decorative.
2. Make designs on the glass bottle by doing hand painting.
If you don’t know what type of paint you can use to do hand painting on the glass bottle, let me tell you that you can use acrylic enamel paint or acrylic glass paint to do hand painting on the glass bottle. Acrylic enamel paint or acrylic glass paint are generally used for glass painting. Don’t use solvent-based paint because solvent paint gets washed away if you clean your glass bottle.
You need to choose a type of hand painting brush as you will make designs on the glass bottle by doing hand painting. There are many different types of paint brushes available in the market. I’ll suggest you choose a paintbrush that is smaller in size and has a pointed brush. A broader paintbrush can help you in doing less elaborating designing.
Now before starting hand painting, you have to wash the entire glass bottle. Washing the glass bottle will remove dirt, dust, and smudges. After washing the glass bottle, rinse the glass bottle and let the glass bottle dry completely. Make sure the glass bottle is perfectly clean because if the glass bottle is not perfectly clean, then the glass bottle will get spotty paint spots.
Now use a black liner to draw designs on the glass bottle. Now after drawing designs on the glass bottle, paint those designs by doing hand painting. After finishing hand painting, leave your glass bottle alone for 24 hours, so your glass bottle gets dry.
3. Use tape to make designs on the glass bottle.
This method is one of the easiest ways to make designs on the glass bottle. If you design your glass bottle through this method, your bottle will look like you bought it from a store.
Firstly, you have to clean your glass bottle nicely. After cleaning the glass bottle, you have to cover the glass bottle in strips of tape, and between each strip, you have to leave gaps. After covering the glass bottle in strips of tape, you have to paint the entire glass bottle.
When you are done painting the entire glass bottle, you have to wait until the glass bottle gets dry. You have to wait at least 24 hours. After 24 hours of waiting, remove the tape from the glass bottle. Your lovely glass bottle is ready with its beautiful design.
4. Use nail polish to make designs on the glass bottle.
If you are looking for the easiest and quick way to design and paint the glass bottle, then this method is for you. This method doesn’t require any hard work.
Clean the glass bottle completely, then paint the entire glass bottle. Wait for 24 hours so the glass bottle gets dry completely. Now choose any of your favorite nail polish and start making designs on the glass bottle. You can draw any specific plan you want, but make sure it looks pretty good.
5. No designs, only paint.
If you only want to change the color of the bottle, use a syringe. This method is the simplest way if you wish to change the color of the bottle or paint something on the exterior of the bottle while the backdrop is a different color. It’s also less messy than spray painting.
Insert the syringe into the bottle and fill it with the chosen color.
Fill the bottle with paint. Rotate the bottle to ensure that it is completely covered on all sides. This method is also less messy than spray painting.
