Hello there! Jenn here and I would like to share how I upcycled an old bottle into this beautiful decor using Delight™ air dry modeling compound from Creative Paperclay®!
This was so much fun and such a transformation!
I started with an ordinary old bottle as seen below.
I used a silicone mold to mold the cherub using Delight™ air dry modeling compound. This compound is very lightweight even after it dries and works very well for projects such as this.
While my little cherub was drying I gessoed the entire bottle with white gesso, allowed it to dry, and then added a script stencil to the back side using texture paste.
I also wrapped soft, bendable wire around the neck leaving the excess to add my butterfly later.
I added some script stamping using a dark brown ink and let it dry overnight.
Next day! I added my molded cherub to the front of the bottle. I coated her with white gesso.Using a matte gel medium that dries transparent, I added some art stones and mini art stones as seen.
After adding a few metal embellishments and gessoing them I allowed it to dry again. I used Colorique inks in Verdigris and Poppy mixed in water to apply color. I used these on the butterfly and heart as well. I added some bling around the neck and some flowers then applied the butterfly to the top wire. The cork was made using a rose embellishment attached to a small wooden thimble. I also added the little bird on chain to the stopper. For a glittery effect I brushed over the face and some of the bottle using DecoArt Pearlizing medium.
Supplies for this project:
