Firstly, I must thank you all for your kind messages,
on my last post here and on my Face Book page.
Also to welcome Debbie, a new follower and hope you
like what you see!!
Yes, the title 'Took 5 Years' is correct!!
I started making this wine bottle just over 5 years ago!
I originally covered it with plaster of paris and painted it with
duck egg blue paint. I then added some embellishments
I covered it with Gesso and job done.
The problem was, I didn't like it!
So it sat on my desk for 5 years. I even moved house 4 years ago
and it still sat on my desk!
Until last Saturday!!
I wanted to do something messy, so picked up the bottle and made
a start on it. Stripping off all the embellishments.
I made the flowers with clay and sprayed them with
some bottles of Tattered Angels, a mica and a mix of colours.
I also sprayed the bottle with some of the colours.
I then used on everything, some Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish and
Metallic Gilding Polish, which I used my fingers to spread it where I
wanted it. Very messy but great fun.
The colours are much nicer in real life and the Mica
I am quite pleased with it now!! Lol!!
It's just like the world has been tipped upside down, with
the Coronavirus and to me it feels surreal.
I just wished that I could wake up in the
morning, to find it was just a bad dream!!
At least, here in Suffolk, the sun has been shining for a
couple of days and the spring flowers are so pretty.
Please stay at home if you can and stay safe.
We have cancelled our holiday and I am thinking
of cancelling a scan, that I am booked to have on Good Friday.
