Paper Artsy challenge Bottles


Hi everyone hope you are all OK and  doing a lot of crafty things
I haven't had time to make a new bottle for this challenge
but still had this one that I made a while ago.


I wanted to take part in the Paper Artsy challenge as I want to do more
of these bottles just need lots of hours. 


I created this bottle from an old Sambuca bottle that my son
had  picked up on holiday.


I covered the bottle in gesso then applied alcohol inks 
in terracotta and denim.


I used film clay and stamped into this then moulded it round 
the bottle. Which I then baked in an oven
on a very low setting.


I then finished of with treasure gold.
I hope you like it for those of you who have not seen this before.
Please feel free to let me know what you think.

So cool, Dee - the textures and gilded effects are brilliant - it's so tactile - I love it!

Wow, I love this! The alcohol inks look amazing and the clay with its impressions is so professional looking! I would love to own a treasure like this and it has inspired me to have a go at something similar...thanks! X
