How To Paint a Wine Bottle

So how do I paint the wine bottles? 

From this:

Step 1:  Drink WINE.


Step 2: Drink more WINE.

Step 3: Peel of the labels.  They can be tricky.  I spray mine with Lysol Kitchen Spray (magic in a bottle), let it sit, then wipe off.


Step 4: Wash the bottle, inside and out.

Step 5: Use a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol to make sure any residue is gone.

Step 6: Prime with Gesso.


Step 7:  Basecoat with acrylic paint.  I have the best luck with Ceramcoat. It is thicker, and doesn't require several applications.  I usually do 2-3 though.

Step 8: Paint any design you want. If you've had too much wine and are more comfortable with stencils, you could try these:

Step 9:  Paint a couple layers of protective sealer.  I use this:



Step 10:  Skip Steps 1-9 if you would rather just drink more wine...
