Mixed Media Altered Bottle

Hello Friends!!
A new project to share today, An altered bottle!
I have never done it before, so I was so excited to give it a go!
Have a look

Altered bottle

Altered bottle

How I started?
I picked an empty soap bottle for this and used mod podge to stick a layer of cheese cloth to the entire bottle. Then coated the bottle with gesso.
I mixed some acrylic paint & texture paste and applied it on a white sheet using stencil. Then fussy cut it in random shapes & again glued these patterns on the bottle using mod podge. Next added some gold acrylic colour to the texture paste & applied it on the bottle here & there. Sprinkled some copper dust on the wet paste.


Left the bottle to dry completely, then painted it with acrylic paints.
Frame & dragonfly was handmade using clay & silicon mold. I added lots of blooms around the frame. Added pieces of washi tape near the frame. These were added to a thin paper & then glued to the bottle to increase it's visibility. The neck of my bottle is covered with purple foam sheet & tied with a twine. Added some charms & pearls.

I hope you like it! Do share, I love to read your comments :)
Thanks for stopping by! 
Have a great day!
