First, spray paint your bottles in the color of your desired background. I chose white. Spray a thin even coat then let them sit for about 10 minutes. Spray them with another thin layer. After that step, I let them sit for a few hours while I worked on other stuff. You just have to let them sit long enough that the paint isn’t tacky to the touch.

Next up, put some acrylic paint in the color of your choice on your plate or bowl. Dip your brush in the paint and then wipe it off on the side of the plate to get any excess paint off. Hold your bottle upside down and paint strokes downward all the way around your bottle. You’ll want to brush the paint up to the height on the bottle you want your paint to go.

After you let the first coat of paint dry for a few minutes, it’s time for the second coat. Do the exact same steps except this time, stop the paint a little shorter than your first coat. This will give the layered look to your bottles once they dry.
