Altered Perfume Bottle

Another mixed media day... this time I altered unused perfume bottle from Issey Miyake.. the one with cute and unique shape.. here's the bottle..

First I covered all surface with white gesso.. seems it's a bit difficult to cover glass with gesso... takes time hahahha... 

Then I put all the embellishments.. metal embellishments, chain, paper flowers, charms.. put gesso once again to the surface and all embellishments...

Wait til it dried.. then spray it with Dylusions ink spray.. use these colours: London Blue, Vibrant Turquoise, Cut Grass, Fresh Lime.. after it dry, start to colour the embellishments with Twinkling H2O shimmering watercolour.. Sunburst, Dragonfly Wing, Indian Copper, Bronze.. then put it under heat gun... 

After all dried.. put some embossing powder/enamel.. Cosmic Shimmer's Artic Black Aurora, Stampendous' Shabby White and Aged Ochre.. then .. taraaa.. it's finish.. here's the photos:

This is my first time altering glass bottle.. so beside it is a bit difficult to put gesso on it, it is also takes more time to wait it cool after put it under heat gun *even more than metal hahaha*.. but I enjoyed the process anyway.. :D sooo start from now on I think I'm gonna keep the unused perfume bottles after it finished.. hihihihi.. 

Thank you for stopping by today.. cyaa on the next project.. *mwach*
