Recycled Peacock bottle and gift box set

Dear friends

am back after a long time,a quick post to share another painted bottle with all of you....

Decoupage and glass colors
I have used Glass colors and decoupage on the bottle. The peacock design is on both sides of the bottle. I have used water based glass colors by Hobby ideas in  blue and green on the bottle and a teeny- tiny bit of glitter around the decoupaged image. Used two coats of varnish to seal the colors and the image. The gorgeous papers are from Mesmerising India collection by Divya Thallap available with Craftslane. The bottle is a recycled liquor bottle and the box a coffee mug pack. The box is also decoupaged using same collection and I have distressed the edges by using metallic acrylic colors in metallic blue/green shades.

The top of the box and two sides have been stencilled using homemade texture paste and fancy Feathers stencil and then painted in blue/ green and a little bit of gold dust powder. This is how it looks with the lights  ...................

This gift set is for a dear friend with some more goodies already packed in the recycled box!!

    1. Thank you Jay, here is the homemade texture paste recipe: I use ceramic clay powder mixed with Fevicol MR( any white PVA glue)+ Water in a 1:1:1 ratio. When using as a texture paste with stencils, add white acrylic color too. You can adjust the quantities depending on what you want to use it for. For making embellishments or clay items, you can add more powder to have a dough consistency. For stamping you can have a liquidy texture and add the colour of your choice. The clay mixture works super economic and is good to be used with stamps, stencils or moulds. It keeps well in a tight container in the fridge, air dries quickly and is light-weight. You can do a lot with this , add colors, embed beads, lace,sequins in this and it adheres very well.One word of caution, wash your stamps immediately and well after stamping with the mix. You can see a simple card I made using this and a wooden block printing stamp here http://kalasirjana.blogspot.in/2013/06/neon-card-and-homemade-gesso-tutorial.html

    1. You don't need any primer when using glass colors on bottle, and the box is a recycled cardboard box, just used gesso to hide the packaging design and then texture paste and acrylic colors, hope this helps :)
