Does anyone know how to tint plastic soda bottles? Tint, not dye so you can still see through them. Please see photo for reference.

    There are spray paints that are transparant/semi transparant. Some are called sea glass colors by Krylon they will tint but semi transparent I sprayed a clear glass vase with a sea glass color. Modge Podge makes a colored paint/glue you paint on with a brush that dries absolutely clear like a colored Mason Ball jar. There are others too. Check your DIY stores.

    Elmer's Glue & Food Coloring. Just mix the 2 to your desired color & paint it on. It dries clear leaving only the color. I've done this with crystal candlesticks. They look like sea glass when I got finished. :)

    I love these candle holders. They look beautiful. What I'd like to know is if I use elmers glue and food coloring can you put water in the bottles?

    The glue goes on the outside and you can still use water in your bottle. I've done this project before
