Oriental Bottle

Having watched a mini clip from DecoArt by Mark Montano showcasing the new Alice Through the Looking Glass release which you can see here, I decided to take his idea but go my own way with it. I covered my bottle with oriental text paper.

Once dry, I gave it a coat of quinacridone red as I wanted to still be able to see the text through the paint. Next I added an oriental image, a couple of strips of washi tape and I cut three flowers from some netting material, a strip from a piece of squared lacy stuff for the back and a piece of red and gold material to go up the right hand side of the image.

I painted the flowers with various colours of metallic lustres, rose gold, turquoise and red. The ladder style lace at the back was painted with the black shimmer lustre.

I outlined the flowers with a black sharpie pen and added black square gem stones in the centers.

I also outlined the red/gold fabric in black too, you can just see a bit of it on the right.

Love how you can still see the text through the paint.

I added a few strands of fibres and a Chinese coin to the bottle neck.

I wasn't too sure what to do with the top as I didn't have anything suitable to put inside to make a top, so I simply covered it with ribbon and stuffed the end in the top of the bottle.

You can see the red / gold outlined fabric better on this photo.

And here is the finished bottle.

Sam your bottle creations are fantastic - I love them all. I want to do one but there are so many things I say I want to do and never do them
Beautifully done!
