INTERMEZZO CLASS.  Vino Bottles:  painting on glass. 
Before going back to school, our junior guests joined us for this change-of-pace project.  Turned out to be fun for us seniors, too!  
After soaking the labels off of the bottles and drying them thoroughly, I applied a base coat of latex paint (white or cream color).  When dried, a coat of acrylic paint was applied—in this case, blue as background color for our Landscape theme.  My inspiration bottles included a Tuscany scene on a wine bottle and a Florida beach scene on a Perrier water bottle.  

As you can see, the girls followed their own intuitive path with very personal palette choices and creative images.  Turquoise and blues with playful birds and flowers emerged.  

We used acrylic paints and made sure none of our watercolor brushes got into the pot with Acrylics-Only brushes!
