Rainbow Glass Bottle

Hello Everyone,

Here I am showing you an easy way to create hand painted glass bottle.
Everyone loves to see rainbow. It gives us an amazing feeling when we see rainbow.
I painted the glass bottle, which is inspired by rainbow. It is a very easy to paint and yet it looks beautiful.

You can see the original glass color between two painted strips. At that area I put cellotape for equal partition. Then I painted the particular strip with different colors. 

To create a rainbow design on glass, I used rainbow colors. like, violet,green,yellow,orange,etc. Some of them are made with mixture of two different colors. like, orange and parrot green colors.

When the painted strips get dried, I removed the cellotape which were pasted between two painted strips.

And I got this amazing hand painted glass bottle. Now you can see a rainbow everyday..!!

You can use this hand painted glass bottle as a show piece or as a flower vase.

Basic Steps for Hand Painted Glass Bottle

For Painting, you have to make sure that what and where you want to draw and paint on your product.

Here, I will show you how to paint on  glass bottle.

If you want to make partition on bottle, you have to draw a specific line or border in bottle. Here, I want to make horizontal partition on my bottle, So, I used a sellotape to make a broad width. So I can easily paint specific belt on bottle.

You can use any type of sellotape which can be removed before you paint. There are many types of sellotape available in the market with different width. So, as per your design requirement you can make thick line or border on bottle with these sellotapes.

I painted many different acrylic colors in this bottle. For separation I have used two different sellotapes which have different width. By using this the paint will not mix on bottle surface. When paint dry, remove sellotapes carefully.

After removing all sellotapes I will get clean border line between two painted surface. Now you can paint that removed sellotape area with different color.

Tips Before Paint Glass Bottles

Painting on glass is easy as much as painting on paper. But you have to be careful to handle the glass material. Make sure that your glass surface have to be clean and dirt or oil free before applying paints.

There are many types of paint colors available in the market which can be used to paint on glass. Like, Acrylic colors, Oil paints , Glass colors from different company. Generally I use Acrylic colors for glass painting. It does not require to heat product.

Make your design clear in your mind before paint. Sketch or paint in paper for your better performance. Make all stuff handy like, paint brushes, colors, medium, dry cloth or paper towel, tray etc.

For painting you can use normal paint brush which we use for any other painting. Paint brush must be dry. After painting, wash brush with water and dry it thoroughly.

Whenever you start to paint, first shake the bottle or roll it on plain surface or stir it.

Some paints may require more than one coat. So first allow the first coat to dry before applying a second coat.

You can use thinner or medium whenever you want to make thin layer on glass. Remember, never use water to make thin color. It will damage your color consistency.

Always use color direct from the bottle.You can take it on paint tray. If you want to make new color by using two or more different colors, you can make it easily. But don't use water. If needed then use thinner or medium.

There are many type of  spray paint available in the market that you can use it for glass paint.
Markers are also used for glass paint. like, to make outline.

If you make some mistake while painting and you want to remove paint from glass, wipe it with clean cloth or paper or just scratch that part gently.

Painted glass materials must not be wash with water, Just hand washed it and don't scrub it.
