Hello dear friends!
Today i’m with a new Mixed Media project.
I was inspired by the sophistication of ancient statues.
And I wanted to make an object reminiscent of that era.
Confess I never liked decorating bottles, and this time I was pretty skeptical.
However, the result that came out thanks to the chipboard exceeded all my expectations!
I got great satisfaction from both the process and the result!
Now I urgently need bottles of all sizes and shapes because I just fell in love with this format!
I wet the chipboard with water so it wouldn’t break and stuck it to the bottle.
If you look closely you will notice a lot of gears of different sizes under the main composition.
Since they are painted to match the bottle, they are difficult to immediately notice.
However, they add volume and layering to my composition.
I used three sets of gears.:
In the same colors I painted the Clock Face Frame and covered it with Glossy Accents by Ranger.
And additionally a little tinted alcohol ink
I took this lovely little key off one of the paint cans.
To add flicker to my work I tinted with wax
None of my work is complete without toppings.
I glued beads and glitter with Clear Gesso
I have made with the products by Bad Girls Couture:
I shall be delighted if you like my work and inspire you to create your own unique bottles.
Don’t be afraid to try something new and come back to topics you didn’t like before!
Life is full of amazing discoveries, let them fill your life!
