DIY Faux Cranberry Glass

I am obsessed with painted glass bottles and jars. I have seen so many beautiful projects lately; simple spray painted bottles, white paint inside of the glass resulting in a milk glass effect and Mod Podge and blue food coloring inside of the glass which makes beautiful sea glass.
I decided to try making faux cranberry glass. True cranberry glass is an art and the glass is typically hand blown. You can use Mod Podge and food coloring to create the look of cranberry glass. Use old jars and bottles for an instant faux cranberry glass collection.

    Hi, I love this effect. Stupid question, how do you spray paint the bottle. Do you just mix the food colour in with water? How do you get it NOT to run? Then you use Mod Podge & blue to do the outside, is that right? I'm impressed up here in Toronto. Thanks in advance for your answers from your new cousin in Toronto. : )

    How pretty Carolyn. @Elayne, she was talking about when she make milk glass. These were not spray painted. Check our her blog link for more details on how to do this pretty technique.
