Makin's Professional®Beacon Adhesives - 3-in-1 Adhesive
Heart craft punches - 2 sizes
Use the Ultimate Clay Machine® and began rolling the black clay on setting #1. Then roll on setting #2, and again on setting #3, and rolling more times until ending with setting #7.
Now spray the bottle with water and wrap it with the thin layer of black clay.
With your hands, blend all the lines and borders of the bottle and smooth the union lines. Don't worry about the imperfections because those imperfections give the bottles character.
To finalize the decoration, I used some little hearts in white clay and light adobe from the Earth Tones set. I created these from thin layers that I made with the Ultimate Clay Machine®. Dry sheets of Makin's Clay® can be cut with craft punches - I used two different heart punches. Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive was used to adhere the hearts to the bottle.
The hard contrast of color in my project is the red yarn that I used to decorate the bottom part and tie a small heart on the top of the bottle.
I hope this bottle continues inspiring you and thank you for stopping by today.
