To be honest,for most of us,glass bottles are plain things in our daily life,but for those who love art and dedicated to art works making,they are totally not.Today we are gonna share some decorative techniques to alter plain glass bottles.


Make Blue and Silver Winter Themed Frosted Glass Bottle


The winter themed altered bottle was inspired by a cobalt blue bottle.How to use stickers to create a mask and how to apply Frosted Glass Spray to a bottle are the key points.


Start with a clean bottle.  Next, apply snowflake stickers to the bottle in the design you desire.  Make sure the stickers are flush against the bottle to insure that the spray does not seep under the stickers.

To create the frosted effect I used Rust-oleum Specialty Frosted Glass spray.  You can find the spray in many hardware and paint stores.  I purchased my can at Home Depot.

There are some important items to note in order to obtain a good result. 


First, shake the can longer than it says in the cans directions; particularly when the can is full.  This stuff is really hard to mix-up.  The can says 2 minutes but shake it longer. 

Be sure to work in a well ventilated area.

Keep the bottle and spray can moving to avoid the spray concentrating in one area.  Into the bottle I insert a large paintbrush handle wrapped in a piece of paper towel so that the handle fits snugly.  This gives us a way to hold the bottle securely and allows me to turn the bottle while spraying.


If you are using stickers as a mask, spray the bottle lightly.  The spray will dry darker.  If you get too much frosting on the bottle you will not be able to lift the stickers without lifting the frosting.  You might want to practice on a piece of glass before tackling the bottle.


If you make a mistake and want to start over, soak the bottle in warm sudsy water then you can easily remove the frosting and start over.


Once the frosting is dry (give it 30 minutes to be sure), use the point of an X-Acto knife to gently lift the stickers from the bottle and reveal the pattern.See the difference before and after through the following picture.
