DIY patterned painted wine bottles

In an effort to add visual interest to these future flower vases, I “drew” patterns across the front with a heavy Nivea cream. I used Nivea because it’s white and I can see what I’m doing. Vaseline would work too. I applied globs of the cream, shaped as crudely as possible, with my fingers, then trimmed it up with q-tips to smooth the edges.
