Faux Stained Glass Wine Bottle DIY Using Food Coloring


Welcome back to DIY No Need To Cry with Ivelisse Faux Stained Glass Wine Bottle DIY All the materials that I used for this DIY
are listed in the description box below I made this DIY to answer a couple of questions
some of you had. Deb contacted me and wanted to make a stained
glass window for her mother and wanted to know if I new what to use. Stacy wanted to know of any ideas decorating
the bottles or vases so that they are still somewhat transparent or semi-transparent so
that she can put fairy lights in it and see the light shine through. and Ruby wanted the same thing.. some Led
lights in a bottle. So I combined them all and made this bottle. Hope this helps inspire you, your crafting
and that i’ve answered all of your questions. Let’s get started. So in order to get this stained glass look,
I looked online and saw a few ways to do it. I tested them out to see which one would work
the best. I tested out the acrylic paints with the Mod
Podge Super Gloss Brilliant, which is a clear coat. Acrylic paints with my regular Mod Podge gloss. This one is milky white but dries clear. Then i tried food coloring and the Mod Podge
Super Gloss and then the food coloring and Mod Podge gloss. When it was all dry, I thought the food coloring
with the Mod Podge super gloss brilliant had the best results, so I went with that one. So thank you Tenshi. I thought her method was the best one. I’ll leave the link to her video in the
description box below. I prepared each color I was going to use. I used these empty bottles I’ve been saving
for years. They are my empty, vaping, E liquid, bottles. If you don’t have them that’s fine i’ll
show you how to mix it without the bottles. I poured the Mod Podge into another, clean
and dry, container that has a small opening so that I could fill the tiny bottles without
making a mess. I made sure the bottles were clean and dry
before doing this. I filled the bottle with the Mod Podge. Then took the food coloring and added 6 drops. You can add as much as you’d like. Then I took the back of a paint brush and
mixed it all together. I did it this way instead of shaking it because
the label on the Mod Podge bottle advised not to shake. I did this with all my colors and then labeled
each of them with a sharpie. You can also mix small amounts of each color
like this. If you do it like this, do not make big batches
as it will dry out on you while waiting for sections of the bottle to dry. So do little amounts as you go. For the image I used, I went on delphiglass.com. They have beautiful patterns for stained glass. Some are for purchase and some are free. This one is free to use. Type in free peacock bevel panel pattern (faces
right) in the search bar Holy cow try saying that three times fast. click that and it will bring you to the downloadable
PDF file with the pattern. I went to my local FedEx and printed out 5
copies just incase I messed up. The reason I didn’t print it out myself
is that it had to be a laser copy in order for it to work. No ink jet copies okay, only Laser print copies
will work for this. Cut the image out, leaving about an inch of
space on each side. Take some painters tape and tape the image
facing down onto the bottle. Make sure it’s nice and flat. For this part you’ll need, nail polish remover
with acetone or pure acetone, a brush and a spoon. I used pure acetone. Brush the acetone over the paper. I did it liberally and had no problem but
start off with light coats and place more if needed. Once the paper is soaked, take the back of
the spoon and press down hard. Pass the spoon over the whole image doing
this. This is an old method used to transfer images
onto wood. I decided to try it on glass to see if it
would work, and it did! Make sure to get every spot. Just to be on the safe side, I gave it another
coat of acetone and then continued with the spoon. Lift one side of the tape only, to see if
the image has transferred. If not, place it back down and continue until
it has. Because the lines on this pattern are so thin,
you can barely see it, but I can assure you that it works. I could see it, but the camera did not pick
it up that well. If you put the video on full screen, you can
see and make it out. Taking a black sharpie, I traced over the
peacock only. I then added my own lines because I wanted
to use more than one color in these areas. I wanted to use two shades of the same color…
like a highlight. If you make a mistake, use a cotton swab and
some alcohol to clean it up. I also cleaned off the rest of the pattern
that transferred but I didn’t want. Here I’m just showing you that it comes
off easy. Take the bottle an place it on something that
won’t let it roll away. I use my old egg container flipped upside
down. It works perfect for this. Now taking some fabric paint I traced over
the whole thing. Practice on paper first. You want to get used to doing this. So that your lines come out somewhat even
in thickness. Also do this in sections, and let them dry,
so you don’t smudge it trying to trace the rest of it. If you smudge it, whip it off with a dry paper
towel and continue. Do not clean it with the alcohol or you’ll
erase the sharpie pattern underneath. Once you’ve finished the whole pattern and
it has dried… take a cotton swab with alcohol and clean all the sharpie marks left on the
bottle. The next part I did free handed. I drew a double boarder around the peacock
about an inch wide. If you mess up, again use the alcohol to fix
it. I then drew triangles inside the boarder. All the way around. ..and finally, free hand squares, rectangles
and triangles all over the bottle until it’s completely covered. When I was done with that I traced it, in
sections, with the fabric paint, until the whole bottle was done. Remember to use something to keep the bottle
from rolling and let it dry fully when you are done with a section. Then continue until you’re done. …and once again, clean off all the permanent
marker marks with alcohol. Before I started filling it in with the food
coloring mixture. I colored one of the copies to see what color
scheme I was going to use. This way I can refer back to it as I’m making
the bottle. Now for the fun part. Filling it in! It’s like coloring in three D! I used blue, pastel blue, teal, green, red,
yellow, purple and a pin to pop air bubbles. This is how I started to do it but I realized
later on that it was better to just put a tiny bit on the spot and spread it with a
brush. Again, I used a paint brush for this later
on and it works much better. Only use the pin to pop the air bubbles. The reason this way doesn’t work is because
this is not a flat surface and the thicker the amount you use, the more gravity pulls,
leaving cracks and over flowing. Which I will show you further along. Remember to let each section dry before starting
the next or it will run or ruin the previous work when turning the bottle. For this part I painted the whole thing yellow
so that the peacock would pop from the rest of the bottle. Make sure to turn the bottle so that the part
you are working on is as leveled as possible. Let it dry in this position as well. Here I am adding texture by tapping the coloring
with my brush. I did this every 3 to 4 minutes as it dried
to create a wavy glass look. I only textured this part of the bottle. Fill in the rest of the bottle with all the
different colors following the same step. Add a drop of color. Spread it with a brush. Pop any air bubbles with a pin. Do only three to four spots at a time that
are leveled and keep the bottle still while it dries. Once dried turn and start again. This is what happened when I put to much color
in one spot. It cracks because it is not a flat surface
and gravity pulls it if it’s to thick. I’m usually picky and somewhat of a perfectionist,
however, I loved ever crack and mistake I made on this bottle. It just looked so perfect with all it’s imperfections! This is where I started using the brush and
everything came out smooth. Continue until you have colored the whole
bottle. Once the bottle is done, you can put lights
in it if you’d like. I wanted mine to be more of an art piece so
I added a custom cork. I took a clear round plastic refillable ball
and glued the two halves together and then I set that aside to dry. Now do the same thing you did to the bottle. I free handed this without using the sharpie
this time. I did one half and let it dry and here I’m
doing the other half. Set that down to dry. Once that’s dry, fill it in the same way
you did the bottle until it’s completely colored and dried. Here i’m measuring where I want to cut the
cork. Make a mark with an x-acto knife. I want to cut the cork for two reasons. One because you can see through the bottle
and two is because I didn’t want any of it poking out of the top. I wanted the ball to lay flat on the bottle. Make two slits where you will insert the ball. I used hot glue but it’s best if you use
a stronger glue if your going to be taking the cork on and off. So put the glue and adhere the ball. Now you have a matching custom cork. And this is the finished look! I love, love, love this bottle! Expect to see more of these because I really
enjoyed this one! I already have another idea with this style. I hope this video was helpful and that you
enjoyed it. Don’t forget to leave your request in the

  1. Great idea for a smoking bottle. For burning incense stick's. Decorate, slow drill hole at base of bottle for airdraft hole. Using a stone bit. Like diamond. Use a keyring to hold an incent stick at bottle opening. To make 3-D stick whatever you want on the outside.

  2. Beautiful results. I'm sure it is a lot cheaper to make your own paints than it is to use Gallery Glass paints it seems to be the same basic ingredients. I've used them in the past.

  3. Wow this is amazing. You did a wonderful job explaining step by step. And the end result is beautiful! About how long did this take you? And do you think this technique would work as good on a normal piece of class exposed to sunlight? Or would you just leave it for something inside the house?

  4. Print at home, trace with cheap eyeliner. To show us the lines, place bottle over a white surface, light backdrop shows images better than a dark background.

  5. Nice work… I liked it better without the border detail – just personal preference. It's very well done.

  6. Muy lindo y bien explicado. Gracias por subtitularlo para los q no hablamos su idioma. He visto muchos de sus videos y todos me han gustado. Dios la Bendiga. Saludos desde Panama.

  7. Oh my GOSH, I was just browsing through the craft videos and came across this one. It made me gasp, it's so stunningly beautiful! I must try your technique but I think I'll try transferring a pattern to a flat piece of glass since it'll be the first one for me. Thank you so very much for sharing your talent with us. I so appreciate and…I most definitely subscribed! 🤗🤗🤗🤗

  8. Your stain glass technique is stunning. I am assuming the modpodge in the paints insures adhesion to slick glass but is the fabric paint secure on the glass? I want to try this myself but don't want the paint to flake off in time. Your work is beautiful and your time and talent are appreciated!

  9. If anyone is interested, they sell stained glass paint at Michael's or Joanne fabrics along with the black outlining paint which would be easier.

  10. WoW, WoW, WoW! I love this video just awesome. I am definitely going to attempt this , my mind is just spinning with ideas. Thank you for sharing.

  11. I just finished watching this tutorial. You rock. That bottle is fabulous. I have a piece of beveled glass that I picked up on the side of the road. Yay. I want to do something like what you just did. I'm hoping to write something like "Kiss me Goodnight" or "Sleep Tight", I plan on hanging it in my bedroom. So I have big ideas but NO talent. Would you just write the words with fabric paint? I was hoping to make them big and bold. I will definitely take your advice and start with something small. (maybe a ragu jar? ) I'm so glad I found you. Your talent inspires me. Wishing you well.

  12. To avoid using acetone all you have to do is trace and cut out a STENCIL of the design.Then tape the stencil to the bottle and draw your design through the stencil with the permanent marker.You can make stencils of your designs by getting some cheap clear plastic (acetate) from a dollar store.Then you can trace your design onto the clear plastic (acetate) with a permanent marker and cut out the stencil with an exacto knife.

  13. You got yourself a new subscriber! Love…love…LOVE Stained Glass! This video was easy to watch, understand and, your results are stunning. Can't wait to try it out. I'll also be looking for your next video about this showing your NEW METHOD. Thanks for the ideas!

  14. Hi I am sarah, I just watched your video the bottle is just beautiful, and amazing. You did a beautiful job and the tutorial was excellent and perfectly done with each instruction so very clear. I am disabled and no longer able to work because of a heart attack that led to various heart issues including a blood cloting disorder that i have to be on blood thinners for the rst of my life. so with social security garden rocks mod podged with napkins I only get a small check each month, and I have 2 young grandchildren that i would love to be able to spoil like before, but it breaks my heart to have to tell them so oten that i can't buy them this or that because of money problems. so with all the time on my hands I decided to start crafting. I am doing a little of everything like decopodging bottles using napkins. learning to wood burn. up cycle furniture, and now I have found out how to do faux stained glass. I love stained glass so much looked at lessons they were way to expensive but thanks to you I have found the best and beautiful way I can afford to do it. thanks o much.hopefully after i master this I will be able to make some extra money so i can spoil the kids again and that would be a blessing. I only had 1 child so these are the only grandchildren i will ever have and I love them with all my heart. you have given me a lot of hope. I noticed you said you were making a new video about a different way to stain glass please let me know when its done. and also will the fabric paint not peel or crack off the bottle and shoul i spray it with a sealer after finishing the whole bottle? may god bless you, thanks again, sarah

  15. Wow! Though I've been subbed to your channel but this DIY made me write to you and express my excitement! What a cool project ! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! Am gonna make something similar as soon as I get back to California from overseas! Thanks for the detailed tutorial! hope you can find something interesting on my channel as I love DIYs too!

  16. Beautiful. I just subscribed to your channel. You gave me a super great idea for my dusghter's Christmas present. Thank you very much for sharing,

  17. I love this! you are so talented, I don't know if I'm that good at freehand, but I might try.how did u get the laser print thru ups?

  18. Super CUTE!! I''ve got about 30 wine bottles sitting in my kitchen that I'm looking to do something with but I'm such a newbie t DIY I'm scared I'll screw up, lol. So glad I found your channel, you make everything look so easy

  19. Thank you for this video. I am a disabled Vet looking for something to do on bad days, weeks or months when I am in way to much pain to work outside. I have a few hundred bottles I am saving to build a wall out of and get hundreds of bottles a month from wine clubs. But, in the mean time I can do things like this to decorate the house and to make some money. This will help me in so many ways…. I like to feel useful and that isn't easy when you have sever injuries that keep you down.
    Thanks again.

  20. Does this method smooth out and hide the brush strokes? I'm hoping to find a cheap and easy method to stain/paint entire glass sheets, to make them resemble actual real stained glass. Then cut them and piece it together, like an actual stained glass project. I hope my question/idea is understandable. Lol!

  21. Kind of…🤔🤔😕😕 So you feel that if I use a glass cutter after “staining” it, that the “stain” would peel after breaking off each piece of cut glass away from the stained pane? Is that what you think would happen?

  22. Yes you are making perfect sense. You are using a “broken glass faux stained glass” technique. Where as I’m thinking along the lines of faux stained glass panes, and then proceeding in the traditional stained glass techniques. Which very well may peel when cut. I guess a follow up question to this would be. Could I cut the glass first, then stain all but one side of the glass and bake/dry the stain, and then stain and bake the last side of each piece of cut glass? Or would that damage the stain after baking one side twice? My apologies for so many questions! Last night after watching your video was my very first thoughts of doing any type of stained glass diy projects ever!!! Lol!

  23. Neat! I got this giant lamp that looks like a light bulb. Its nice, but I'm going to paint the earth on it. Congrats on being clean and sober too.

  24. Have you seen gallery Glass its the same thing pretty much. They have the black an silver for the "lead" lines. The smell of mode podge reminded me of it. Probably all it is made from. But cheaper this way.

  25. How beautiful! Did you know in the medevil era…they would paint peacocks all over the church homes inside? Not big but they would incorporate it in the wall paintings. The reason for this was because they thought the peacock was some sort of image of God because of its many "eyes" on the feather "fan". When i learned that in my medevil world class i thought it was super cool. I ended up getting a peacock tattooed on my lower right side of my back. Im saving this video!

  26. I love the stained glass look. I paint dollar store frames. I use an acrylic pen to outline and acrylic paint mixed with clear school glue. I love using my matalic acrylic paint with the glue to add a bit of shimmer

  27. She has a pleasant voice to listen to, speaks clearly, and is very specific and informative. Love this video! Definitely going to make a flower vase centerpiece! Would immediately subscribe if she did a channel of these.

  28. if I use poster paint instead of acrylic? does poster paint would also make it a stained glass-like?? please reply, we really need to do it tomorrow

  29. Oh my god, thank you for this, I really need this for my school project!
    Plus, you're so talented, it turned out so good! 😍👏👏👏

  30. Thank you so much for this video! I absolutely love it!! Congrats on your 20,000!!!! Can't wait for you giveaway!!

  31. Beautiful work!!!!
    I have a question, I tried the Mod Podge gloss with McCormick food coloring on a window and it came out great. In Ur opinion, does it matter what type of food coloring I use, i.e. airbrush, liqua-gel, gel paste etc.? Thanks for Ur help!!! Pam

  32. Hey there! Great tutorial. Do you have any insight on the longevity of something like this outside? I’m wanting to make a faux stained glass window using these techniques to hang on my mothers porch. It won’t be directly exposed as it will be covered, but will be indirectly exposed to weather. I’m curious on if you’ve made any and left outside? How quick they fade, if at all?

  33. Love love love it!!! Awesome sauce! Question. Can you use clear Elmer’s glue mixed with food coloring? I had neck surgery n me going nuts of boredom. Must try. Hugs debs from Texas

  34. I can't stop watching…I've already ordered different bottles as well as the wine bottles so I can begin to try this technique…thanks so much for teaching this technique…Wow…Awesome

  35. I made this, but I had a situation where I was holding my bottle for a bit while talking to someone and the color ended up on my hands. The bottle had dried already for 48 hours. Is there a way to seal this better? I know this situation is unusual but wondered.

  36. I have also been sober since 2013, there is nothing like having a sound sober mind, and the world of arts and crafts has replaced my alcohol addiction.May God co tinue to bless the work of your hands💝

  37. I tried this but with different techniques and different colours.. I wanna show you that bottle but I couldn't post a picture in comment section.. Is there any other way.. Please let me know..
