Enliven the space around you, customised as per your style with bottle art. Bottles are the easiest way to pep up the décor and give that extra zing of colour and culture to your vignettes. Bottle art great way to recycle stuff and nobody is complaining as it is so much fun!
In this blog series we will look at various ways to decorate bottles. The first step is to clean the bottles and remove the labels. This involves soaking the bottles in a tub full of water overnight and next day scrubbing out the label. Wash the bottles with soapy water and then wipe them with a soft fabric and voila we are ready to paint! The second step is to prime the bottle, if you are going to paint on it. For this apply a good quality primer or paint a coat with dense white acrylic colour. Leave it to dry thoroughly. In the meanwhile think about the design and then we are good to go.
You can actually do anything with a bottle or on a bottle! Possibilities are immense. Here are a few bottle art inspirations:
Isn’t this pair of bottles just gorgeous? Fevicryl Mouldit has been used to create bands and the masks on the bottle and then they have been painted with Fevicryl Metallic Colours.

Doesn’t this bottle remind you of bygone hippie era? The colourful the better and the beads are a plus plus! Beads have been pasted on the bottles with Fevicryl Fabric Glue.
