Watch out! They’re fresh out of the oven! I’m up to 5 Bottles of Hope now. A couple with slices of flower canes. Another has bright cutouts on black and white striped cane. Last on the list is the two waiting for embellishment. I’m getting ready for clay day to play. Don’t get me wrong, I will make some there, I am just easily distracted and create very slowwwly.
These are the white bottles in the picture above. Here they are after I got crazy on them. You should see my hands, next time I’ll wear gloves…um yeah, sure. I just dripped, wiped, blotted and pretty much whatevered the alcohol ink on them until I was happy with the look. It’s easy to get carried away, it’s interesting watching the colors interact. Funny thing is the rust color moves out of the way of the stonewashed. Just looking at the bottles you would probably never guess that’s what I used. In person they look more like pottery clay that has been fired. They do need a little something, I’m not sure what. Hmm, maybe a little bit of gold wiped on them? Sort of highlighted a bit? I’ll bring these all to clay day. Well, back to my secret laboratory to create more! -T
