Update an Old Glass Container Using Spray Paint and Rubber Bands

1,076,973 Views
Everything looks better in gold, dont you think? I find that so many pieces can be brought back to life using simply some gold spray paint. These glass containers were old and the gold was scratched off, so I decided to update them with a fresh layer of gold spray paint. I didn't want them to all be plain gold, so used some rubber bands to achieve this look.
Difficulty: Easy
get a few rubber bands.
Put them nice and straight around the glass container, they can overlap or be straight lines, totally up to you.
then spray paint away in a well ventilated area
Once the spraypaint is dry, carefully remove the rubber bands. You should be left with nice and crisp lines.

    Beautiful job. I wear clear vinyl gloves, when i do this, also use scissors, the bands will flip right off.
