Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a project featuring an exciting new product, ColorBox® Glass Graffiti. I’ve been admiring a set of ombre wine glasses, but haven’t purchased them because of the high price tag. I’m thrilled that I was able to recreate the same look on a set of glass bottles for a fraction of the price using ColorBox® Glass Graffiti!
I started by cleaning a set of glass bottles. I used both the blue and green colors of ColorBox® Glass Graffiti to create my ombre effect.
I applied the Green ColorBox® Glass Graffiti to the bottom third of a glass bottle using a pouncing motion. Once I had a solid section of vibrant green, I applied the Blue ColorBox® Glass Graffiti directly over the green ink, along the bottom edge of the glass bottle.
Working quickly, I smoothed the ink around the bottle with a paintbrush to blend the color. The ColorBox® Glass Graffiti ink dries on glass in minutes without etching.
The glass bottles I purchased came in this fantastic rope-covered metal basket. I dressed up the basket for the holidays with a bright red poinsettia. I think this set would make a great hostess gift! The bottles could be filled with flavored syrups for use in hot chocolate or coffee. If attending an adult get-together, try filling the bottles with homemade flavored liqueur. Try this same technique on a glass hurricane candle-holder or vase to add a pop of color to a table centerpiece or mantle.
Note: When dry, the ink does not smear or move with casual handling but it can be washed off with warm soapy water. Seal the ink for a permanent finish.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don’t forget to use Clearsnap ink to stamp up some bottle labels! How would you fill these bottles?
