Upcycled soap dispenser mixed media style – a quick overview on how to work on glass canvas

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great day. Do you have household items that do not serve their intended purpose anymore? This is the case for the soap dispense that I’ve bought from the Superstore (or grocery store). I like the vintage look that this soap dispenser has, and the rose gold pump is perfect for what I need.

For some reason, the pump stopped working no matter what I did. So, instead of throwing it away, an upcycled project should be interesting to do. To start off, I have watched a few YouTube tutorials on how to paint glass. The reason why I made some research was to ensure that my work would not fall apart after it’s done (speaking through experience). Here is the video that was most helpful to me:
