Paint brush. Mine was 1 inch wide.
Glass bottles. I soaked and scrubbed off the wrappers from a couple of rum bottles. Then used a nicely embossed local honey container.
Modge Podge. Matte finish.
Food coloring. Betty Crocker Classic Gel Food Colors.
Empty can. An empty coconut cream can works great for this purpose. Remove the wrapper for an aesthetically pleasing container. This also works great for retouching paint around the home.
Stirring utensil. A silver butter knife worked just fine. This I washed afterwords.
Wax paper. To protect work surface when painting. Also for cooking the bottles.
Large cooking tray. A 9 x 12 glass dish was used for this purpose, which was covered in wax paper.
Step 1: Set out a protected work surface covered by wax paper. I covered a metal tray with a couple of sheets. The Modge Podge paint mixture is gooey and can create quite a mess.
Step 2: Mix 1/3 to 1/2 a bottle of Mod-Podge with equal parts red and green food coloring gel. Add a few drops of yellow to warm the base. I did not have any yellow food coloring gel left, so I added in yellow acrylic paint to the mix, which worked just fine.
Step 3: Using a 1 inch brush I painted a coat using upward and downward strokes, turning the bottle by pressing my fingers against the inner rim of the glass. The paint will drip down onto the wax paper.
Step 4: Pre-heat the oven to 250. Place fresh wax paper on the inside of a large cooking tray. Mine was a 9 x 12. Set the bottles right side up inside the tray. Move bottles via the inner glass of rim. Do not touch outside. Cook for 3 hours. Checking occasionally for safety sake.
Step 5: Carefully remove from oven and allow to cool overnight. This is when the magic happens! On first glance these appear muddy, yet the glass bottle will appear surprisingly congealed and amber after cooling overnight. The above steps may be repeated the following day for more opaque results.
