31 days of halloween day 4

This is day 4 of 31 days of Halloween (for details click linkie)  organized by Smeared and Smudged. Blogroll in the sidebar

And I am also a Cryptkeeper in the countdown to Halloween, see the list of the other 192 participants here

Today is Smeared Ink day and that will give you an extra chance to win the prize if you use a Smeared Ink stamp on your project.

here is my day 4 project a poison bottle

lots of pics comming

the bottle was brown glass, and I wanted to age it a bit
 
mix it, poor in the bottle and twirl it till the whole bottle is covered on the inside, this needs time to dry and you will have to turn the bottle a few times to keep the paint where you want it (gravity sucks, makes paint drip down)
I had prepared this part, the rest I did today and that was challenging.
Paint and glue needed drying time and needed to take pics in daylight
 
The skull is a Rick St. Dennis image boneyard Skull
 

The label is a Tim Holtz embossing folder. The paper  used is black cardstock, hard to believe when you see it now hey??
 
the magic ingrediënts are the Metallic Lustres, i used Gold Rush, Copper Kettle,  and Black Shimmer.
It's real easy to work with. I used a make up sponge and started to add the copper kettle first. It will get more shine if you use a cloth to rub it. then added the Gold Rush and Black Shimmer, just random till I liked the result.

 
Yes that is a doll head I used as a stopper.  I be headed a little baby doll, and poked some holes in the head for the horns . The horns are Lego (from a viking helmet, ssshhh don't tell my son)
the head the horns and the cork are painted with a layers of Deco Art Dazzling Metallics colour copper and added some Americana Antique teal .

the heart was lustred and the skull painted same as doll head

the Plague is a smeared ink digi, coloured using distress ink (rusty hinge, walnut stain and peacock)



This skull is a Rick St. Dennis image boneyard Skull coloured with distress ink



 
that's all folks, see you tomorrow for day 5
 
 
I will enter this bottle in the following challenges

  7. Thank you, thank you for posting so many pictures. Each little bit is a piece of art! Love this bottle. Hilarious that the first thing I thought was how you made those horns and that they look just like lego pieces. I have 3 boys and am always thinking of ways to use those tiny bits. Awesome coloring on all the images. Like the beads and ribbons around the bottle also.
