Powder coating is an electrostatic process in which polymers or plastics are applied in a dry spray. Typically, this process is used for metals, but with the right preparation, it can be applied to other materials such as glass or wood. Powder coating is much more durable than most conventional paint, and creates a thick and even coat. 

You'll Need:

01.  Glass bottle
02.  Sheet of aluminum foil
03.  Simple green
04.  Scrub Brush
05.  Wire to hang bottle (about a foot)
06.  Powder Coat
07.  Powder Gun
08.  Powder Coating Oven

Step 1: Prepare Oven

Turn on the oven according to the temperature provided by the powder you are using. 
In this case, I used Columbia Mirror Yellow that cures for 15-20min at 375-385°. 
Heat oven to 15-20° higher than your curing temperature, as there will be a lot of heat loss when you open the oven to place your part in it (Just make sure you remember to turn it down to the correct temperature while the piece is curing).

The oven can take up to an hour to heat up, you can prepare the rest of your materials while waiting.
Looks amazing and beautiful, I definetly will try it!
