Bottles Up!!!



After a rummage around in the glass recycling box I rescued this maple syrup bottle for the challenge over on PaperArtsy this week.


Gave it a coat of chalky paint, wasn't sure how this would stick but it was fine. 


Several coats of paint later and after some stenciling, this is the front.


Added a symbol from a stencil on the back mixing raw umber media paint with white modeling paste and before adding the string which was coloured with gathered twigs distress stain, I gave the bottle a couple of coats of ultra matte medium varnish.

Both your bottles are great. Like you, I hate covering up a background I'm really pleased with. You definitely got the balance right though. Lx
