Illuminated Bottle – Kerstin Filou

Hi creative friends!

 I was inspired to create another illuminated glass bottle in altered art.


1 choose some chipboards I used a border and a flourish element glue a piece of cheesecloth and the chipboards with construction   adhesive on the glass bottle

2 create a pillar gate and a little mermaid with airdrying modeling    clay and silicone cake moulds,

2a I love to use some leftovers from the chipboards (here the    bottom conclusion)       borders are used on the sides

 glued the gate and also added some shells and two pieces of driftwood as entrance steps    afterwards the bottle was completely covered with crackle medium ‘Weathered wood’ (DecoArt)

after drying covered with a chalky finish paint for glass ‘Relic’ (DecoArt) let it dry for a few hours

5 now two wax cremes ‘Lavish Green’ and ‘Brilliant Turquoise’

 6   dry brush technique with white gesso to lighten the dark colour

finally added the little mermaid  

 some close up’s

 chipboards can be bent around the bottle very well after a light moistening with water

here can you see the used leftovers as sea waves on the bottle sides
