Wipe the bottle properly and mix one spoon of cement with two spoons of water in a bowl. Prepare a paste of cement and puff it with sponge on the bottle. Do it to make your paint scratch free.

If you are an abstract art lover, you can create any of the abstract designs with two contrasting colours. For example, painting half of the bottle with blue and half with white is a great combination.
