Step 1: Clean your bottle and spray paint it white. Haven’t spray painted before? Just practice patience and do it in layers so the paint doesn’t drip. One coat, let it dry and repeat until you have your desired shade.
Step 2: Dip your eraser in the paint and dab it lightly on your palette so there isn’t a bunch of extra, and then carefully add a polka dot to your bottle. Repeat this process in the same color and then wash/wipe your eraser off and begin again with the next color until you have reached polka dotted perfection. I tried to take a picture of this step, but I don’t have three hands and almost dropped my camera in paint. Imagination will have to do for this step :)
