It doesn't stick. The bottom 3 with new paint. The TOPAZ one might display better on the bottom. I pay 5 $a bottle to a young lady to paint, do you think that is fair.

White base coat with the red on top would help that red color pop. Great job with the embossing. That is not at all easy. I tried painting a license plate once and it was a real pain to get right. No jail time, i just found an old plate i wanted to refurbish.

I tried to do it myself, forget about it. She will be at the flea market, so I gave her an assortment of small ones maybe she can make a few bucks. And it might help the both of us 5 $ a bottle seems to be a fair price.

I thought about that with mine, but does it detract from value like cleaning an old coin? Or is the finished product more pleasing to potential buyers?

The paint can be washed off with soap and water. I tried it on several different bottles, and it does not leave a trace of paint on it. That's with the paint showed in the picture, any other one you should test it first.

I just don't see the point of painting them at all - but at least it is reversible, unlike exposing glass to a black light for a few weeks to turn it obviously and artificially purple. Unfortunately I see that a lot of collectors are resorting to this practice in order to sell what they consider unmarketable bottles and ruin bottles in the process. Please have a look at what these folks say: https://www.patternglass.com/this_color_purple_99.htm

This paint is 100 percent removable. Why would I ruin something I put a lot of effort into digging up . I've never purchased a bottle, but from the beginning of time there's been morons out there. BUYERS BE WARE!!!
