I wasn't quite sure what I was going to create when I started this project, but it ended up being a fun holiday project (and it's never too early to get a head start on holiday projects).
Makin'sⓇ Clay - Grape Leaf
Clay Push Mold - Leaves
Clay Texture Sheet - Floral
Prima Marketing Metallique Paints
Start by kneeding Grape Leaf Clay. Place the kneeded clay on a bottle and spread it with your fingers forming it around the bottle. While still wet, the clay will adhere to the bottle without adhesives. Using fingers to move the clay around the bottle leaves a nice impression.
For more dimension, I rolled the bottle on a Texture sheet pressing it into the clay.
Next, I painted the bottle with black gesso and put it aside to dry.
While the bottle was drying, I used the Leaves push mold to create an assortment of leaves from Grape Leaf Clay.
Next, I placed a floral spray on the bottle, holding it in place until it dried. Then I placed several of the clay leaves amongst the floral spray.
I added color to the gessoed bottle with Prima Marketing Metallique paints. I used my fingers to be sure the paints got into the embossed areas. Next, I then spritzed the bottle with water so the colors would run and blend together.
What do you think?
