Bottle painting is a fun and simple way to add a creative touch to everyday objects, such as perfume bottles, scented candles, jars etc. It’s a great way to personalize a gift for a loved one or a special occasion - now could be a good time to start thinking about Christmas! These unique works of art can also become lovely decorative accents in your home.
In this exciting two-hour workshop we will be painting on glass perfume bottles. We will learn how to prepare your surface to make it suitable for painting and explore a variety of techniques that will turn a simple fragrance bottle into your special ’canvas’.
The techniques you learn here can be applied to a variety of surfaces such a glass, metal, cardboard etc. We will cover simple drawing and acrylic painting techniques and Sai will work through the process step-by-step. No creative experience needed.
Specific skills you will learn at the workshop
- The art of bottle painting

- Some interesting tips and hacks that will help you to take your new skill to the next level.
