A couple of weeks ago I posted some treasures I found at an antique show my son and I went to and among those treasures were some old bottles. I had promised that I would post them and show you how I decorated the bottles. So here are a few that I have finished. I have used soldering and encaustic wax method and added old buttons and charms.
On this first bottle the stopper is an old drawer pull and on the front of the bottle I incorporated my fathers picture. The bottom of the bottle is wrapped with fine screening and lace is on the top.
I soldered book chain around the bottle. And inside a rolled up paper with Psalms 91 is hanging form a chain.
This bottle is soldered only, no wax was used.
This was an old show buckle
The top of this bottle is an old lamp finial
The bottles are great to work with and are a lot of fun... I will be making more and putting them up on my etsy.
If you have any questions and would like to make some for yourself please feel free to email me - there is a wonderful artist Johanna Pierotti, her tutorial at Moss Hill Studios on bottle art, dolls and collage is fabulous.
I am traveling for a couple of weeks but have my trusty new laptop with me so I should be good to go.
Sunny Arizona here I come!
Blessings to all of you...
