My Friends, I hope you had a wonderful and creative Easter time!
This Easter Monday we have a breathtaking altered project created by Riikka who gave a completely new steampunk life to a perfume bottle...
I was pondering what to do this month but then the solution presented itself in a funny way.
I was just about to leave work when I noticed some perfume bottles in the corridor with a note “free for grabs”. Among the bottles was one by Jean Paul Gaultier, a male shaped bottle. I really like the fragrance JPG has in his women’s line, but the shape drew me closer and then it hit me. An altered perfume bottle!
I wanted to give the bottle a complete make-over so I started by painting it white with gesso and then created a paper of my own to be glued on top.
I guess it was the Mechanicals I was thinking of using as decorations in the first place that made me think of reds and oranges.
Considering the bottle was teal before I started the end result is quite far off from the posh look it had before.
Like always, I recorded a video of my process. As it took some time to make the “Mechanical Man” I cut the video more of step-by-step style so you don’t have to watch me craft for hours!
I hope you’ll enjoy!
Thank you for stopping by today! Until next time!
