Steampunk Bottle for Mother's Day

Something entirely different today.
A Steampunk Bottle or something similar to it :P
I wanted to make something special for my mom for mothers day, so here it is.

I didn't have any steampunk kinda dies, stamps or embelishments, so had to make do with what I did have.

Here's a list of materials that I've used:
Oil burner, buttons, rond punch, flower punch, lace, beaded string, plastic lace, gesso, masking tape, 5 paint colours, twinkling h2o's, glue gun, tassel, christmas tree embelishment, bratz round and square, the back of a pin and the wick of the oil burner.

Now first things first.
Carboot sales it is.
I've brought home for €0,40 this oil burner.

I took the wick out and put it aside, as Ill be using that too.
Screwed the lid off and cleaned out the bottle.
Next step, paper masking tape, the tape used by painters and covered the entire bottle and lid with it

Next step, Gesso
I've covered the bottle and lid with gesso

Once that was done, I made sure the gesso was dry by using my heatgun.
With my gluegun I started glue-ing things to the bottle like, lace, beaded string, bratz, buttons.
I made a frame on the front of the bottle where my image was goin to go.
The small flower and circle punch I used to cover up the holes on the buttons and remember that wick I took out.
I took the wick apart and started gluein those strings between the buttons and bratz, you can see it on the left side on the image below.
After I had that all glued to the bottle, I took my gesso again and added gesso to all the embelishments

For the lid I used a button and on that button I glued the back of a pin/brooch

Again I used the heatgun to dry it all and now it was time to start adding paint.
the first layer is done with black acrylic

Once that was dry, I added a layer of burned sienna and with a paper towel I removed some paint here and there so the black would come through.
Next layer Yellow Ocre, same as with the burned sienna, paper towel to remove some paint.
Not done yet ;P
I've added some copper and eventualy some deep gold here and there.


I left it to dry over night.

So this morning it was time for the image.
I measured the frame I made at the front, to make sure I wouldnt print my image to big.
Printed out the image on aquarel paper and took another piece of aquarel paper that would fit within the frame.
On the piece of paper I used the same colours that I had used on the bottle, to create the background.
I put it aside to dry and took the image.

I've cut the image out and glued her on the piece of background paper and then placed it within the frame on the bottle.

Finaly, I added a tassel, also coloured with the same paints I used for the bottle and the other embelishment you see attached to the lid comes from christmas tree decoration, which I also painted.


And here it is on its place in my moms Glass Cabinet

My colouring skills arent so good, but I'm well happy with how this project turned out.

Huggsss, Angelique
