Bottle it!

I said I wanted to show you something I was altering didnt I.
As you will probably know, I dont do much altered stuff, mixed medium etc, but I thought I should have a play.
So, as a personal sacrifice I emptied a half bottle of Scotch (mixed with pepsi) so I could use the bottle.
This is the first bit.
I cleaned off the label and pulled off the metal cuff. When it was properly dry inside I squeezed a little Cream Acrylic paint with a drop of water and swished it all around. Then I added a couple of drops of pale blue and dark blue to the inside of the neck so it would just run down slowly, give it a little shake to mix slighly with the Cream colour. Turn it upside down and leave it overnight so the excess paint runs out and the bottle dries. 
Do you want to know whats next? me too, show you soon!
