Usable Art by Laura's Glass Garden
I Perfected the
Dish Soap Bottle
I was a unemployed Denver mom in 2000. I had spent several years trying to paint a dish soap bottle that would not wash off when sitting in a puddle of soap. I also needed a bottle that would be durable enough to withstand the daily punishment my plastic bottle received. I had bought various bottles that broke or the paint washed off. I knew there had to be a better way to have a pretty bottle at my sink. My hard work and persistent paid off.
My friends saw my painted dish soap bottle and they all had to have one. soon I did my first craft show and sold out!
I made a quality product that is intended to last a long time. Soon customers were calling asking for more pieces and more color choices.
Painting and preserving the paint is a seven step process that takes well over an hour. This allows the paint to last as long as the bottle. – I sign and date each piece to add value when it becomes a collectable.
The Perfect Dish Soap Bottle Became, The Perfect Hand Painted Glass for:
Oil and Vinegar
Salt and Pepper
Mouth Wash Sugar dish Containers
Paints and the Process
I compose each bottle individually and sign and date it. My secret seven step process includes gluing the glass before it is painted. I bake my art and then glue again for two hand painted layers of a clear enamel. The protection of the paint takes longer then the painting. It is worth the effort. if my glass is going to last 100 years I want my paint to last too. I am headed for Antiques Road Show!
"The glass bottle is made to last 1oo years. I wanted my paint to last as long. Consequently, bottles are passed from mother to daughter and treasured as family memories. Someday these will be on Antiques Road Show!" Laura Garden
My pet peeve is pumps that break. I purchased 2,000 extra pumps from Spain for replacements. I still have the 2,000 extra pumps because these pumps are seldom break. But if yours does, just give me a call and I will ship one out to you free. These pumps only fit the European sized tops, so they will unfortunately not work on other bottles.
I spent a lot of time researching pour spouts. I also guarantee my pour spouts. the ribbed neck hold the spout in and forms to the size of the bottle. The dual opening allows air to circulate and prevents dripping and burps that cause soap to run down the bottle. I use the rubber white ones for dish soap or mouth wash. the clear and black pour spouts I use for food products. It is acrylic and can be broken if dropped. I have black dust caps to seal off the pour spout. If your breaks just give me a call and I will replace it for free. I do not sell these separately.
Benefits of a
Liquid Dish Soap Bottle:
Use about 40% less dish soap. You only pour what you need verses squeezing out too much. I dilute thick dish soap about 40%.
Save more money by buying the economy size bottles and refill when needed.
Less plastic bottles means less waste in our landfills.
Avoid the destruction of natural resources by using a recycled product.
Art in unexpected places is joyful!
