Title: Handpainted Glass Bottle
Post by: lisianblue on May 05, 2009, 10:09:35 PM
I almost didn't list this, I really like the way this 8 sided bottle came out.  I did the design based on an art nouveau vase I saw on Antiques Roadshow.    I use glass paints that are pretty durable - I did a glass 5 years ago that gets washed at least 2x month in the dishwasher and the paint still looks great!
What do you think?  I have it listed for $33.00.   It's 7" tall and 1.5" across. http://

It is a very pretty bottle and I think you did a great job painting it.

That looks pretty good.   The vine work looks nice and consistent.

hehehehe Armored - I can''t paint my toenails either! 
I get polish all over me! 

Part of it is a frosted paint -

You should see my fingernails when I try painting them - much worse than my toes!  ;D

One who makes jewelry, chainmaille, paint, etc...cannot have pretty fingernails.  It's against the law.

Nails??? You mean I'm supposed to worry about my nails?  They always are a mess and I've just learned to live with it.

So if I do my chainmaille with my feet I can get manicures?

Frosted paint? where do you get that?

More power to you...if you can do chainmaille with your feet you deserve more than a manicure.

Jeeez how do I miss stuff??? I like this-very pretty  :) 

You'd probably go nuts for my antique liquor bottle collection-they're the kind with the glass stoppers that match the bottle design, all clear glass. They would be fun to paint, although there's no way my knarly hands could do anything that didn't look like a first grader's work. :o  My mom and grandma used to fill them with little plastic flowers and water colored with food coloring, I just display them along the tops of my kitchen cupboards the way they are  ;D

Thank YOu Manic Butterfly!
Yep, Ms ManicButterfly, I probably would go nuts for your bottle collection - and they probably would NOT get painted! 

I like painting bottles - small bottles - and only newer ones - theres just something that I can't do the older ones!  and I can't paint my fingernails either! 

jemsbyjbandco - Thank you!
