Krylon Sea Glass Spray Paint Review

This post contains affiliate links.

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!

Faux sea glass bottles

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!

Pros:
  • 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
Cons:
  • Ummmm... ummmm.... I can't think of any except maybe that it cost more than regular spray paint!
Here are some more shots of my finished bottles.


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?

  2. They look so pretty. I like the seashells in the green glass and the candles look awesome in them. The paint gives a very nice effect and seems to be pretty quick and easy.

  3. Thanks for the review--the paint looks very nice on your bottles and jars. Glad to know that it is a durable finish and won't easily be scraped off. I'll have to use one of my craft store coupons and get a can of the Sea Foam green to use on some bottles we have. They'll go well with my beachy back porch décor!

    1. Thanks, I have seen the popularity with canning jars at weddings so I thought why not match them to your colors!

  9. I just bought the ice to make a monogram vase for my best friends house warming gift (not her only gift lol) but it keeps running. Any tips I'm new at this spray paint thing

  10. Hi Victoria! I’m so glad you are trying the sea glass spray paint… sorry you had an issue with running though.

    My suggestions would be:

    1. Make sure you spray far enough back, about 12 inches. Our tendency is to not want to waste paint so we get too close thinking more of the paint will get onto our object we are painting but it is too close and the paint runs instead.
    2. Do several really light coats. I am guilty of being too impatient, I want to get my project done so I can see how it will turn out and I put too much on at once and it runs!

    So, stand back a ways and do light coats giving it 10 – 15 minutes between each coat.

    I hope that works for you, let me know!!
