    If you use glass paint to paint on wine bottles, liquor bottles or fruit jars. You still need to bake it as the directions say. For it to stay on the bottle or jar. Or would it be better to use regular stained glass paint?

    is it possible to dip bottles into enamel or solvent ink and get it painted? I am a professional printer on glass bottles but looking for starting color coating on glass bottles with good adhesion kindly suggest?

    Yes you can use enamel, but you need to bake it afterwards so it is cured. You can read details to my post about it here:
