To paint a water bottle, prepare the following supplies in advance:

  • a plastic or silicone water bottle,
  • a set of permanent oil-based markers,
  • rubbing alcohol and napkins for degreasing.
  • Tips to consider when painting water bottles

    1. Before starting work, take a little time to prepare the bottle for work: wipe its surface with rubbing alcohol for degreasing and wait for it to evaporate.
    2. Since oil-based markers are permanent, they dry in a few minutes; therefore, be extremely careful in the painting process and try not to make mistakes.
    3. You can experiment and use any type of markers you want, such as medium tip markers, but for lettering projects we recommend using oil-based paint markers as they give more control over the lines.
    4. You don't have to be limited to lettering. When you feel more confident, decorate the next bottle with an original design in addition to lettering.
    5. Remember that creating a water bottle artwork is a simple and fun activity that does not require special tools or additional money.
