So I was doing some recycling the other day and decided to hang on to the empty sherry bottle (Not mine by the way) as it was such a lovely blue colour!
I had a couple of ideas forming in my head and as soon as I had some time to myself I sat down and started to experiment!
Out came my IndigoBlu Paints & Gesso, some Texture Paste & Masks, Kroma Crackle Gel, Micro Beads, old jewellery and so much more...............!
Happy Easter Sunday to you! xx
|The Altered Bottle in all its Glory!|
|So to begin..........Wash the bottle out and remove label if you can!|
Paint bottle with GeeSoo-Good (Gesso) to give the other paints a Key to adhere to!
I chose to use black to give the base a darker look!
|Start adding texture to the bottle, I used some Dreamweaver embossing paste, |
through a mask to give the bottle a pattern and add texture!
|I then added White GeeSoo paint to cover up most of the black!|
|This is what happens to the thick layer of Kroma Crackle & Paint!|
|Close up of Paint, Paste and Crackle effects|
|Now the fun part. Adding old jewellery and some painted metal embellishments.|
The embellishments were cut to size and painted with white GeeSoo Good!
I find Crystal effects works brilliantly to stick down all sorts of hard materials!
|I covered the top of the bottle with Lace and found a small silver Bezel, filled it with Crystal effects, placed a small resin flower in the middle and filled up the remaining space with tiny white sequins .|
|In some of the empty spaces,I added more crystal effects and Tiny Glass Beads. I also added the glass beads to the top of the bottle neck and the bottom rim of the bottle! Once dry I painted over them with the Snow White paint!|
|Top of the Bottle|
|To finish off the bottle I added flat backed pearls and dusted over the bottle with Mica powders in white and blue to add a bit of shimmer!|
Thank you for stopping by and taking a look today! Hope you stop by again! xx
