View Full Version : highlighting?

09-19-2005, 01:00 PM
I am fairly new to bottle and jar collecting. I've noticed on some web sites that the embossing on some bottles appears to be highlighted. I was wondering what would be the best way to do this without destroying the value of the bottle or jar being highlighted. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hi ,
I don't know what everyone else here uses. But , I use regular Latex Enamel interior house paint ( White ) . I thin it a little with water so it goes on easier. It washes off easily with a little warm water and an old tooth brush .
If your embossing is scratched ..... it may be hard to impossible to wash the paint out of the scratching in the embossing. So check the embossing out carefully before painting.

I use Faber Castell Uni Paint Markers PX-20 and PX-21...they come in assorted colors with different size tips...Just shake 'em up and letter away...Paint will wash off ...but as BRIAN noted: it is harder to remove if the embossed letters are worn/scuffed,etc..

Hey Charlie ,
Where can you get those markers ? Wal-Mart ?
I have never seen them before . I'll have to get me some of those and try them out.
