The fun with Deco Art glass paint is nowhere near finished.  Check out how you can create this ombre frosted glass look on an empty wine bottle.  The frost paint is super fun to work with, and I am loving the look.


Empty wine bottle

Rubbing alcohol

Lint free cloth

Frosted glass paint in Turquoise and white

Cosmetic sponge

Start at the bottom of the glass with turquoise and apply lightly with cosmetic sponge.  At the point you want to shift to a lighter shade of turquoise, mix white frost with turquoise and continue up the glass.  Use white on the top segment.  Let that dry for 30 minutes or more.

Go over entire bottle with light layer of white frost.  This ties the layers in together better, making for a more subtle gradient effect.

What are you supposed to do with the rubbing alcohol and lint free cloth?

Clean the glass for optimal paint adhesion.
