Bottle it, part 2

Good afternoon to you!
I found time to pick my bottle up yestereday and do a little more on it, here's where its up to..
I stamped the Clarity Kingfisher and Branch in Versamark, Perfect Medium is just as good. Then I heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Aurora powder. (Darks & Metallics set)

THE BOTTLE GETS HOT SO I DID EMBOSSING IN 4 STAGES & GAVE BOTTLE TIME TO COOL INBETWEEN, OR THERE IS A RISK OF IT SHATTERING and/or BURNING YOURSELF.

Then I coloured using Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints.


It is not easy to stamp onto a bottle with curvy bits, dust with talc first to help with static and help reduce slippiness of the bottle. If you are using Versamark/Perfect Medium and you slide around and smudge your image then you can just wipe it off and start again.

Some embellishing next I think....

  5. Wow! Maria that's simply stunning. Empty bottles will never be the same again......of course it will probably mean a lot of empty bottles collecting waiting for me to get around to trying this out! Sometimes I think the ideal place for a crafter to live is next door to the tip lol
