Soap Bottle



Hello! I love making (and receiving!) hand made gifts, and of course this is the perfect time of year for that. I decided to decorate a plain foaming soap bottle. Truth be told, I didn't make this as a gift. It was for my house, but I may just get a few more of these soap bottles and make them as gifts for people. To take it a step further, you can easily make your own foaming soap and add it to the bottle before giving it as a gift. It's perfect for a housewarming present!

I bought this foaming soap bottle for about $6, and I knew right away that I wanted to use StazOn Studio Glaze to decorate it. So I washed the bottle down and chose my colors to go with my bathroom.

I turned my bottle upside down and squirted on lines of Claret Studio Glaze, allowing it to have a nice big drip at the bottom. I varied the lengths of the lines, and kept plenty of room in between them to add the other colors. I worked on a scrap piece of cardboard, so that I could easily turn the bottle around without touching it.

Next I chose Gothic Purple. I did the same drippy, varying lines all around the bottle's base. I made sure to not put any of the Studio Glaze directly on the bottom of the bottle, because I didn't want it to be wobbly.

The third color I used was Midnight Blue. I made sure to not have a pattern. Some lines touch, while others have room in between them.

My next 2 colors were Emerald City and Cactus green. The colors will look different once they are dried.

Last, I filled in the gaps with Cotton White. I did need to go back and add a random color in certain areas, but this process only took about 15 minutes to complete.

After the Studio Glaze dried, I decided to repeat the process along the top of the bottle as well. Here is a close up of the completed dry Glaze.

The colors are deeper and more translucent, but they are still quite vibrant. I love the drips going in both directions, and my family thinks it looks great in our bathroom. You can easily do this technique on an inexpensive set of drinking glasses or a mug. They could all make great gifts. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Supplies:
