Altered Bottle

Morning everyone. Hope you enjoyed the Halloween theme as much as I enjoyed looking at your projects.
This week we are asking you to alter a bottle. I just love altering stuff it really is a lot of fun. I did 2 bottles got a bit carried away LOL. They both started out life as small shower gel bottles so are plastic. I have loads of these so plenty of shapes to chose from. I gave the bottle a coat of gesso and then painted with multi surface paint. I must admit it took about 4 coats. I have also used metallic rubs to age the look. The pink bottle has been covered in texture paste and once dry painted gold then added jewels.
The blue has been treated in the same but instead of texture paste I have used rock candy crackle glaze and metallic rubs. Both lids have also been decorated.

I am really looking forward to seeing your Altered Bottles. Enjoy the challenge. Do take a look at Florence, Janet and Chrissie lovely projects.
Get ready for the Out of A Hat Christmas celebrations in October :)  Thanks for stopping by and your lovely comments. Hugs Sandra XXX

Hi Sandra. Gorgeous altered bottles. Love how you have decorated them both. They are so much fun to do. I can see why you made two. Sometimes a coat of PVA glue helps the paint to stick on plastic. You don't seem to have had any problems though. They are delicious!
