Today we want to share with you a special post:
What kind of paint do you use on wine bottles?
Decorative glass bottles can be expensive. So instead of paying retail prices, you can make your own painted bottles at a much lower cost in colors that perfectly match your style. Over time, save the wine bottles or any other interestingly shaped bottle that you would like to paint and display as decorative pieces. The project itself is quick and easy. All you need to do is remove all the labels from the bottles, clean them inside and out, and then spray them with primer and paint. To have the greatest impact on your design, consider painting multiple bottles of different shapes and sizes in coordinated colors. You can use the bottles as vases and they even make great personalized gifts.
What will you need
- Equipment tools
- Wash dishes
- Plastic scraper (optional)
- Adhesive remover (optional)
- Drop cloth (or another protective surface you don't mind painting on)
- Aerosol primer
- Spray paint (in the colors of your choice)
- Empty glass bottles
1. Remove the labels
Glass bottles should be well cleaned inside and out. Fill your sink with hot water and dish soap and let the bottles soak for about an hour. Then rinse them while trying to remove the labels stuck on the glass. A plastic scraper and adhesive remover can help if the label doesn't come off easily.
After removing the labels, give the bottles another quick soap and rinse them to make sure any residue is completely gone.
2. Prime the bottles
Many people skip the primer step, but it is essential that the paint job last and look good on the bottles. Choose a specially designed spray primer to help the paint adhere to the glass.
Make sure the glass bottles are completely dry and place them on a cloth or other protective surface in a well-ventilated area. Then cover each bottle with a thin, even layer of primer. Hold the spray primer several inches from the bottle. (The can will usually give a specific distance recommendation.) Holding it too close can cause primer build-up and drips on the bottle.
Once you have an even coat, wait for the primer to dry before continuing with painting. Your primer should indicate the drying time of the product.
3. Paint the bottles
Now let's get to the fun part: adding color to your bottles. It's best to paint one bottle at a time with the others out of the way so that no accidental overspray results in an uneven paint surface.
Work slowly with fine, even sprays. Always keep the spray can moving while you spray each bottle, so paints don't build up or drip. You can still fill in areas that need more coverage, but areas that have too much paint are harder to smooth out.
Finally, let the bottles dry completely before using them. The spray paint should indicate the time it takes for the product to dry to the touch and dry completely.
