Hello creatives! I hope you all are doing well. This is DT Harshada on the blog today and I am back with another interesting altered project. Let’s get started.
For this project, I have used a glass bottle as my base. Before working on the bottle, it’s important to clean it thoroughly and dry it..
The first step is to apply a coat of gesso. Here, I have used Little Birdie white Gesso. Apply the gesso with a sponge applicator instead of a brush to avoid brush marks. Let the gesso dry overnight.Note: It may take little extra time for the gesso to dry completely due to increase in humidity. If you want it to dry faster, you can use a heat tool.
The next step is to decoupage the bottle using a beautiful tissue. I have used a peacock design tissue from my stash. Carefully remove the layers of the tissue and adhere the main design using Deco Magic Glue Glossy. After it’s completely dry, give a top coat of the Deco Magic Glue Glossy to seal the tissue. Let this dry properly.
Next, I did some clay work on the bottle, surrounding my main tissue design and at the bottom of the bottle too. I used air dry clay from my stash for this purpose. Let the clay dry completely before colouring it.
Next, I coloured all the clay work with dark brown acrylic colour and then dry brushed on it with Sap green acrylic paint.
I had few pieces of white cotton fabric. I dyed them with the new Little Birdie Glitter Fabric paints- Teal Glint, Sparkle Pool, Pine Sparkle, and Ginger Sparkle.
Thereafter, I gave a few finishing touches. Splattered white acrylic paint on the bottle and used Little Birdie Decor Varnish to seal my work on the bottle. My altered bottle is ready!
