Seashell Wine Bottle Art DIY | Ep.3 Sea Foam Effect Trick!


Welcome back to DIY No Need To Cry with Ivelisse Seashell wine bottle art DIY episode 3 sea
foam effect trick Hi, my crafty fam! I hope you all have your bottles painted,
sealed and ready to add the sea foam to it! But remember to practice on something else
before trying it on your final piece, trust me! I had a lot of fun doing this part and I hope
you do too, let’s get started. We’ll be using water and nail polish so
I put an old towel down to protect my work desk. Next, you want to fill something that is big
enough for you to dip your bottle into, with water. I used water right out of my tap… not too
hot, not too cold… you want a comfortable temperature. You’ll need any kind of white nail polish. The more opaque it is the better. I tried two different kinds and one worked
better than the other. Make sure you don’t use old, thick, nail
polish or it won’t work. I learned this trick from a nail video I replicated
years ago and I thought, I wonder if I could do that to a bottle, Well guess what I did
and you can. You’re going to need some alcohol and a
spray bottle. I believe you can use anything with alcohol
in it, like hairspray or a body spray but don’t hold me to that. Okay so doing this on a smaller scale for
nails was way easier. As you’ll see it took me a few tries to
figure it out. Have your paper towels ready and some kind
of stick or sponge brush to clean the water after each try unlike me. All right, so what you want to do is place
a drop of nail polish onto the water without it sinking to the bottom. To achieve this, get close to the water with
the nail polish brush and let the little drop of nail polish fall onto it. If you do it from too high up it will sink,
so get close. You’ll see it start to spread, and that’s
what you want. If it doesn’t spread, you’ll have to keep
trying until you get the hang of it or it’s probably your nail polish. Then you want to spray it with the alcohol. Now, I made a lot of mistakes the first time
around. Let’s focus on the first mistake. I added too many random drop spots and my
spray bottle was spraying all weird because, as I figure out, later on, it had a clog. You want a fine mist. I also wasn’t getting the opaqueness or
the effect I wanted once I transferred it onto the bottle. But I kept trying until I figured it out I wiped off as much nail polish as I could,
gently, and tried again. You know what amazes me, the fact that I always
tell all of you to test things out first until you get the hang of it but what do I go and
do… go straight in with the bottle that took me days to paint and seal! Shake my head, I have got to start practicing
what I preach. Okay so, I got the one spot right this time
but my spray bottle was spraying all funky. Tried again, this time it wasn’t opaque enough on the
bottle. So this time I let more then one drop fall
in the same spot the make the nail polish more opaque… except it didn’t spread,
I still kept playing with it but if this happens to you, just start again. However, I did figure out that if you leave
the nail polish in the water too long without spraying it, when you do, it won’t work
because the nail polish has dried. I decided to let the nail polish touch the
water, just the nail polish not the brush and look at that! That’s what I wanted right there. Still not perfect because my spray bottle
was still not spraying right and I still hadn’t fixed it. I’m cringing as I edit this video and see
how much I was experimenting with that bottle. Oh my goodness. I’m so lucky I didn’t mess it up. Please don’t do this, you guys. …and look at that. I finally starting to clean the water before
trying again and using something to clean it instead of my hands. I’m a mess. You want to clean the water after every attempt. After a whole lot of trial and error, I finally started to get the hang of it, somewhat. I continued to do this and place random spots
on the bottle until I was satisfied. Although I was having one heck of a time trying
to get it, I was still enjoying myself and laughing at myself the whole time. I love this part of creating something even
though I really should have used something else to practice with. I can’t stress that enough. Okay, that’s what you want, right there. That’s the look you want. Even with all the mistakes, I was acutely
very pleased with how it was coming out. Once I was done with the bottle I decided
to dip some of the seashells and as you can see, at this point, I look like a pro doing
this. So let’s recap. You want to place the nail polish brush close
to the water, let the nail polish slightly touch the water but don’t dip the whole
brush in. Once you see it spread, spray it with your
alcohol but make sure it’s a fine mist and not a harsh spay and remember you want to
do this part fairly quickly after placing the nail polish or the nail polish will dry
up. Dip the item and clean the water before doing
the next. It sounds so easy, doesn’t it?! This is the bottle after I was all done and
let it completely dry. First off I want to say that I absolutely
looove the effect it gave it. I think it really pulled the whole ocean look
together. It’s exactly as I had envisioned it. Now, if you remember in the first video, I
sealed it with the dishwasher-safe Mod Podge but I didn’t let it cure the full 28 day’s
that it tells you to. What I did instead was gave it three layers,
letting it dry completely before each layer and for the most part, it worked but it did
bubble up in some spots and that’s what you see me doing here. I took a pin and popped any air bubble before
I gave it the final coat of sealer. I think this bottle looks so cool and I can’t
wait to finish decorating it but you’ll have to wait until the next episode for that
my crafty fam! Next, well be putting it all together and
add all the final touches that will turn this bottle into an amazing art piece! As always, have fun be creative and make a
mess! Thanks for watching, if you enjoyed this video,

  1. Lol. I've been there done that with trial and error on my main item instead of practicing. I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time. By the time I figured it out, I was very pleased even with the few mistakes blended in. That's why it's called art. Loving it

  2. I must say I am liking the Bottle as it is so far, waiting for the next step. Have a bless Tuesday my friend. Thanks for sharing again… xoxoxo…

  3. I am LOVING how this is turning out!!! You are the best with tips, tricks and advice! So many artist will not let you see their mistakes. As a crafter, I really appreciate you sharing the bad with the good!! I can't wait until the next episode!!!!😘😘😘

  4. Next time when you clean your water, try using any white piece of scrap paper and pull it slowly through the water. It picks up all the nail polish except what's stuck to the side! Beautiful so far! I can hardly wait to see your finished bottle!!
    I like your longer videos best since you wanted us to tell you. Keep them coming!!

  5. Hello Ivelisse , I have never seen this before.This is getting so pretty.Thank You for teaching this technique,can't wait to start my bottle. Lori..

  6. Girl I do the same thing. I forget to test on something else first and then I get all frustrated when I ruin things. I think that's just the curse of an enthusiastic craftetr because we see it our Minds eye but we forget sometimes it gets lost at our fingertips

  7. I Love you videos and you being able to laugh at your mistakes…Your laugh is totally contagious…Your Spirit is Huge…Love you Girl!!

  8. they say sometimes a Mistake is inspired creation. You did awesome and you show that perfection in life is not necessary.
    Great attitude

  9. Dont beat yourself up too much I think the mistakes in the foam made it look more natural and funky. I'm thinking about making this project for my mom she loves the sea just like i do. I grew up by the ocean and my moms house is decorated with beachy bungalow stuff and cooking chefs. I'm thinking about making this but I would have done the net a little differently I would have used all the colors in a spot check Haha. But it's so cute. I love your personality.
