The process of making the glass bottles ready for painting πŸŽ¨πŸ§½

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧑

Like some of you know I got a bit of winebottles from Natasja, but before I can start working with them and start painting, the bottles need to be clean for everything. No wine rest in the bottom, no paper, no metal. They need be totally empty and clean, and that’s a tiny bit of a process too, but a process I don’t mind to do, because I know after I’m finish I can have so much fun painting on the winebottles 🎨.

I just want to share and show you how I do this. It’s not difficult, but it can take a bit of time now and then. Special because of the different wine etiquette on the bottle, where the name and information about the wine stand. This one can sometimes take a bit time to remove. It depends a bit what kind of paper and glue the wine fabric has used.

The winebottles after the “cleaning process “- upside down so I’m sure all the water dryers out.

I need to be sure all the water is gone, and the bottles are dry inside before I can start painting. If not some not to nice “suprices” can “show up” after a while, like bad smell or even something strange growing up 😊. So I let the bottles stand upside down for a while before I start working with them.

But before I’m “there” I need to was and clean a bit 🧽😊.

Bottles ready to be clean up and remove “all and everything”. Bottles in water so the etiquette it’s easier to remove, and they also will be clean inside. And the first “dry- process before I put them in my basket 🧺.

In a way I have my own “winebottle ” process, but not for the wine, for the painting 🎨.

When the bottle is dry, totally dry, the painting can starts. And then the painting needs to dry a bit before I can continue, and after a while I have some finish painted glassbottles as you can see on the last, long photo 🎨.

My cleaning process to make the glassbottles ready for painting is probably not the most “exciting” process, at least not to read about πŸ˜…. But for me this is a part of the painting process so I can create and be creative. And already under the “cleaning process” I get different imagination about different illustrations I want to paint on the different glassbottles 😊.

So my scratch book is in general not to fare away from me either, so I can scratch down some of my ideas- in case I forget them. In general I actually don’t do that. Mostly I do the “scratching” because I need to “try out” my imagination and illusion and see how I can create this on a painting or a glassbottle. But most of the times the illustrations just “are there” in my mind when I’m starting to paint 😊.

My scratch book and just some very few of my scratches/ ideas that’s drops into my mind when I’m not painting 😊🎨.

Maybe not the most interesting and exciting text you have reading by me, but for me it felt a bit important to share with you a part of the process for the glassbottles I’m painting on, because I actually can’t paint at them “like they are”,- or I could probably do that too, but the result has become a bit different then. And I always spray paint the bottles at the end when they are finished painting.  I use oil paint so it lasts a long time, but the glass bottles get a finer gloss, and can withstand a little more when I finish with transparent and clear spray paint.

So now you know a bit of my “glassbottles- process” before they are finish and ready for “use” or given away as a present to someone I care about 🎁🧑.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧑 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧑

See you soon 😊

Glassbottles ready to be created with colours and illustrations, imagine and a tiny “part of me” too 😊

I can’t start painting on a glassbottle before I have cleaned it up a bit 🧽. And the glassbottles needs to stand a bit “upside down” too before I can start painting. I have my own tiny “process” to “make” them ready 😊. I’m, in my own way, enjoying this “get ready for painting” process, even it’s a bit of a boring process too πŸ˜… 🎨.
