Hi my crafty friends! Today I have somethng special for you - steampunk altered bottle.When my sister was on vacation she bought me a bottle filled with shells.I thought to give a second life to this bottle.With all this terrible things happening around the world, I thought I would love to create altered bottle filled with love , faith and peace.
I started with applying layer of white gesso on the bottle.After drying I applied in some places a thick layer of White Crackle paste. Next I glued some gazue to add more texture. I love Creative Embellishments steampunk gears and cogs so I add some of them.
I wanted to give my wings look more steampunk. I painted them with black gesso , then I added some gears and also painted them with gesso. I used perlen pen and put on along the wings .When it dry I cover it with black gesso and just touch with gold bronze inka gold.
In the middle I placed frame with cabochon .I put inside photo , cogs and wing. I glued all embellishmens : little botlle, cogs,crown, and clock.I also added some black Mickro beads and microspheres here and there. On the top I added key to wind up.
In last step I start to added some colours. I used Prima Mica Powders : bottled green ,rust and gold . Mists : 13 Arts olive green , old gold , Dylusions Ink calypso teal and Inka Gold: jadegreen , gold brown . Maybe you also have some old bottles that are just waiting to give them new, more colourful life .
I would like to enter this altered steampunk bottle in to this awesome challenges:
