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
used a mix of Deco Art Americana acrylic paint (admiral blue, Antique teal, varnish, and shimmering silver dazzling metallic paint )
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 label is a Tim Holtz embossing folder. The paper used is black cardstock, hard to believe when you see it now hey??
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)
that's all folks, see you tomorrow for day 5
I will enter this bottle in the following challenges
