Glass and Metal....

Hello friends

here's another bottle up-cycled by using homemade texture paste, stencils and some handmade bottle cap embellishments.I have used acrylic colors in Black, Burnt Sienna and Metallic blue to give a faux metallic patina effect on the bottle.

The bottle caps have been flattened using a hammer and sequins, chunky glitter and bling added with crackle accents. You can also see my bottle cap windchimes here for more details.

Upcycled boxes and a Spectacles case

Hi Friends

These started as simple cardboard boxes and a spectacles case in plastic. Have coated these with a layer of ceramic powder paste and then stenciled leaves with the homemade texture paste using Fancy Feathers Crafters workshop stencils from Imaginations. I won these on the like and share contest by Imaginations on their facebook page. Thank you Aditya Gupta for sending these faboulous stencils to me !!!

The life is good is handwritten while the ceramic paste was wet with a ball point pen.

These were colored using glass colors and Gold dust powder.....the box at the top in the pic above has a hand made Washi tape using painters tape and doodling designs with Paint pens in red, green and white !! The white dots are made using the Camlin paint pen in white.

Hope you like these ............You can also refer to homemade texture paste recipe here .
