We have all made sea glass looking jars from glue, water, and some food coloring – haven’t we? If you haven’t, please don’t even try it! There is a new sea glass spray paint that makes this process so much quicker and so much less of a mess! The effect is created, literally, in seconds -and dries almost as fast. It is possible to transform your entire recycling bin of bottles in mere minutes!
I actually had an empty recycling bin when I decided to demonstrate this new Krylon spray paint, so I made a quick trip to the dollar store. I found some great looking bottles for this exercise and sprayed some to use as table numbers – a fun way to dress up party tables! After spraying, I just added numbers.Of course, there are tons of ways to use the bottles once they are painted! Like…making labels to add to a bottle – easy to do with a home computer!
Because I ended up buying bottles from the dollar store, they are all the same size and shape, but the beauty of using this paint is that you can create a cohesive grouping of bottles by simply painting a variety of shapes and sizes all in the same color.
This Krylon sea glass paint is available in more colors than you probably have sea glass! They include lemon, aqua, ice, cornflower, rose, sea foam, ruby, and amber. Of course, though I didn’t use it for this exercise, ice is probably my favorite! Yes, white is my favorite color in sea glass!
Here is an example of the amber color paint. I used it on a clear glass candlestick. When I put some of my brown sea glass next to the painted candlestick, look how similar they appear!
I hope I have inspired you to create something fun of your own in your favorite sea glass color using Krylon spray paint!
P.S. For an evening party, battery operated lights in bottles are a nice addition. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
