    Has anyone had success in slumping Coca Cola bottles and maintaining the labels?  It was suggested I use Mexican Coca Cola bottles, but all that is left after firing is a faint white colored background where the label used to be.  The “red” coloring completely burns off and the “white” is almost completely gone.  Anyone have a firing schedule that works?

    “Glass paint” is glass, not paint ;). What you have on most bottles is paint. Paint does not hold up in a kiln.

    I have experimented with a lot of pop and wine bottles that have stenciled lables. Some fire up OK while many other bottless do not. I have even fired similar bottles (ie all Corona Bottles) and some keep their labels and colors while others do not. I think it’s due to where the bottles are manufactured.
