Guest Post: Bottle painting

Today I am bringing to you another tutorial about Bottle painting.  My talented SIL R had earlier done a post about Glass painting.    Here is the tutorial

 Step 1:  Take a clean dry glass bottle.

Step 2:  Make an outline of the design using a light colored sketch pen. Here, I have made a design of a grapevine.

Step 3:  Make an outline of the design using fabric glue
Step 4:  To give the design an embossed look, completely fill the design with fabric glue.

Step 5:  Here I have made the veins of the leaves using a toothpick.

Step 6:  This is what it looks like after the glue has dried.(A closer view of the leaf)

Step 7: Fabric glue is completely dry.

 Step 8 :  I have painted the leaves with dark green and the grapes with purple. (solvent based glass colors)
Step 9: And finally after the colors have dried, I filled it with water put in a money plant (pothos).
Looks easy enough,  So folks why don't you give it a try.  Looking forward to hearing about your experience.
Partying with these good folks:
