Painted Glass


Mod Podge Super Gloss
Food Color
Bottle
Paint brushes
Black Sharpie
Rubbing alcohol
Q-Tips
Paint pallet or small cups

First make sure your bottle is clean.
Then using your Sharpie draw your design onto the bottle.
If you make any mistakes use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip to rub it off.
Mix one color at a time (they dry out fast) mixing the mod podge and food color together in your paint pallet or cups.
*Go light on the food coloring remembering it's concentrated.
Paint in your design as you like.
Using the food color and super gloss Mod Podge made it more see through and more like stain glass.
I loved the effect.
