Redesigned bottle

Hi there, long time now.

I've been busy doing nothing, aka summer holiday.
Had some fabolous weeks off work, travelling both to Mallorca and here in Norway.

My latest project is a redesigned bottle from Ikea. (the content was some juice, but that's all gone)

First I covered the bottle with a coat of black Gesso.
Next I used Finnabair's awesome  Art Alchemy acrylic metallic paint.

After all was dry I used some molding paste and a stencil.

Next covered part of the bottle with old buttons, laces ,  findings, metal pieces , flowers  etc.

Covered the whole thing with black gesso  and so came the fun part, going wild with the metallic paint again.

Really loved the result! (my hubby wondered if I had been seeing Pirates of the Carribean again, because it looked like some of the old treasures in the films LOL)

Hope you liked my bottle and got some inspiration to do the same!

Marianne - no matter what type of piece you create - I always love your gorgeous art. Your bottle, especially because of the colors and textures, really calls to me. And, your husband is right - it looks like it might have been pulled from a pirate's sunken ship - wonderful!
