A couple years ago I painted this bottle of Mashke as gift for my husband with a note wishing him a Freilichin Purim!
He brought it to the party to make L’chaim with and it really caught people attention!
It was fun to create and a short project. It may seam tedious as the pictures are made out of dots by using puff paints, but really , it didn’t take long!
You can use acrylic paint as well if you wish to make a background color and use a brush if you need to fill space quicker with easy strokes.
Here are the steps:
- Buy a bottle of Mashke or even wine and take off the label. I found it easy to use a sponge and warm water. (keep on any parts of the label if you wish like I did)
- Make sure the bottle is dried well.
- Then using either regular painting techniques or by painting dots, create your Purim masterpiece!
I have made this for a baby girl Kiddush, making it all pretty and pink with swirls and paisley designs and her name! It’s something we will keep for her and was a sweet addition to celebrating the birth of a girl (plus I had time to make it!! don’t do this for a bris:)
This would also be a nice gift to someone in the community. It’s original, hand made and is a thoughtful creative gift.
