steps

  1. Using the pattern tape, tape off a 45-degree angle starting from the bottom right of the bottle and taping upward to the side of the bottle 4 1/2 inches from the base. Starting at this point, tape down to the center of the back of the bottle.

  2. Repeat the taping for all three bottles. Line up the bottles and carefully adjust the tape until they all match.

  3. Apply the Meyer Lemon paint on the left side of the bottles with multiple layers using the largest dauber; let dry in between coats. 

  4. Remove patterning tape after completely dry. Apply patterning tape from center front of bottle at a 45-degree angle around to the right side of the bottle 4 1/2 inches from the base. Starting at this point, tape down to the center of the back of the bottle. 

  5. Add a piece of tape over the Meyer Lemon paint where the two colors will meet, referring to pictured carafes.

  6. Repeat the taping on all three bottles. Line up the bottles and carefully adjust the tape until they all match.

  7. Apply the Beach Glass paint on the right side of the bottles with multiple layers using the largest dauber; let dry in between coats. 

  8. Remove tape and let completely dry.

  9. Add drink description to tags using permanent marker. Tie around the necks of the bottles.
