Krylon Sea Glass Spray Paint Review

26 August
Financial compensation was not received for this post. A sample product was gifted from Krylon. Opinions expressed here are my own.

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!

Supplies Needed

I started this project with some glass bottles from my recycle bin... almond butter and minced garlic 😁

Wash and dry the jars. You can use Goo Gone to remove the ink pull date stamps from the bottom of the jars and any difficult to remove labels or leftover glue.

Since this was purely experimental for me, I decided to try spritzing some of the bottles with water to see if I could recreate the bubbles that you often see embedded in glass. I sprayed the second coat over the water droplets hoping to recreate that look.

That didn't really do much, there are a few bubbles here and there but they are hard to get to show on camera.

Once you have a couple of coats of the paint on your jars, then sand them gently 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.

After sanding generously, spray the bottles with one more light coat over the sanding.

You can lightly sand one more time and them wipe them down with a damp rag.

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. Can you tell which ones are made with the spray paint and which are old?

I also 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
  • I really 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 the tall jar with a seashell glued to the top, seashells inside the short green glass, and pretty lavender ribbons to each!

They are now in my bathroom window. :o)

I also thought candlelight 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!

  1. It looks like it is awesome paint!

  2. Looks beautiful. I'll have to give it a try.

    1. Thanks Sharon! Let me know what you think if you do try it out!


    2. Thank you for sharing your review at Snickerdoodle!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. The result is super pretty, that's a really neat product and concept!

  6. I love the idea for matching colors wedding theme. So many Brides are using jars in their reception decor.

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


  7. Love how your jars turned out Tania. So pretty! I haven't seen that paint up here. I'll have to look for it.

  8. I had no idea those paints existed - I MUST get some!! Thanks for sharing on the Pleasures of the NW’s DIY party

  9. These look really pretty. I haven't tried this paint yet, but now it's on my to buy list.

    1. Thanks Beverly! Let me know what you think after you try the paint!

    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

  11. 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!!


  12. It is waterproof but I don't think it should be run through a dishwasher or anything like that. I'm not sure what you are wanting to do with it or what you are painting... for some reason I keep thinking something for a fish tank or something and if that's the case I don't know if it would last being submersed all the time like that.
