Gel Printed Bottle and Jar by Tania Ahmed

Hi Friends!

Tania here to share a fun little project showing how I did some gel printing on recycled glass jars and bottles.

To start off, I painted an old jar and bottle that I had been saving for craft projects. I used gesso, but I would suggest using a glass friendly primer paint instead as it would stick to the glass better.

After letting the paint dry, I began gel printing on to the bottle and jar using a variety of tools, stencils and found objects!

You can lift up the gel plate to press it into any nooks and crannies of the glass jar and bottle.

I was lifting some of the excess paint off my brayer and gel plate on to my art journal, so I had some pages ready to work on when I feel like it.

After I was done, I sealed the jar and bottle with gloss acrylic spray sealer suitable to use on glass.

  1. Thanks so much for the idea of printing on glass bottles. I guess the sky is the limit with objects you can print on… Even stones.

  2. I love this idea. These would make lovely gifts. I think I will start saving jars and bottles to make Christmas presents
