Create a colourful bottle collection

You will need
selection of glass bottles and jars
large bowl of warm soapy water
clean tea towel or cloth
selection of oil-based paints, all Dulux
white spirit
funnel
rubber glove
old rag

Directions
Gather together a selection of empty glass bottles and jars. Place the bottles in a bowl of warm soapy water to soak away the labels. Wash the bottles and then dry them inside and outside with a clean cloth.

Pour a little oil-based paint in an old jug or bowl and then add a few drops of white spirit. Use a spoon to stir the two together.

Pour the mixture in a bottle, use a funnel to help prevent spills. Cover the top of the bottle with your hand and swirl the paint round to coat the inside of the bottle. Pour away any excess paint and stand the bottle upright. Wipe the top of the bottle clean with white spirit. Leave overnight to dry. Repeat with other colour paints and bottles.
