One of my favorite paint brands, Kryon, was nice enough to send me some of their Sea Glass spray paint to review so I made some pretty faux sea glass bottles to share with you today!
I started this project with some glass bottles from my recycle bin (almond butter and minced garlic) and Krylon's Sea Glass spray paint in rose and sea foam colors.
I washed and dried the jars and used Goo Gone to remove the black pull date stamps from the bottom of the jars.
After one coat of the paint I decided to try spritzing some of the bottles with water and spray a second coat over the water.
That didn't really do much, there are a few bubbles here and there but they are hard to get to show on camera.
My next step was to sand it all over. I did this because the sea glass that I've seen is not perfect so I wanted this to not look too perfect.
Then I sprayed one more light coat over the sanded bottles.
After wiping them down with a damp rag they looked great! There are a couple in this grouping of old bottles. While the old ones aren't sea glass they have to same feel to them.
I tried out some Krylon I00810 Glass Frosting Spray Paint on the large white one in the center and I think it turned out great too!
So what's my impression of the paint? I love it!
- It really goes a LONG way, I did 8 bottles with at least 3 coats each and I still have a lot of paint left!
- It sprays on so nice and smooth, there were no issues with running at all.
- It is very durable! I sanded with a pretty heavy hand and it stayed on the glass nicely with no scratching through to bare glass
- Ummmm... ummmm.... I can't think of any except maybe that it cost more than regular spray paint!
I added a cork to one of the tall bottles and glued a sea shell on the cork.
The shorter green one looked pretty with sea shells inside I thought.
And some vintage seam binding ribbon finishes them off.
They are now in my bathroom window. :o)
I also thought candle light glowing through the glass would look pretty.
These would be pretty to do for a wedding if the paint came in the colors of the wedding!
So, I am very pleased with this paint, what do you think?

Thank you Krylon for letting me try out some more of your awesome paint spray paint lines!
