Mixed Media Glass Bottle Workshop with Margaret Brackenbury

Good Morning Crafters!

I hope you had a lovely weekend.  On Saturday I attended Margaret's Mixed Media Glass Bottle class.  We started off with a clean plain glass sauce bottle.  Once we had picked the Rice Paper we wanted to use, we picked a colour of Starlight Paints that would coordinate with the paper to colour the bottle.  Margaret shared a great tip, before tearing images from the rice paper wet around the image with a damp brush this makes it easier to tear and the edges then blend in better on the surface of your item.

The images were adhered to the bottle using Starlight Decoupage Glue.  Once this was dry we rubbed over the whole bottle with Sparkle Medium in a contrasting colour.

Next we added die cut flowers, which we coloured on both sides with two colours of Starlight Paint before rolling them up in to roses.

Finally we finished the bottle off with some ribbon.

Here is a short video showing the entire bottle.

Remember there are demos and workshops most Saturdays.  To book a workshop visit the website or phone the shop.   There is no need to book on demo days just turn up and be inspired! 

All items in bold are available from the shop and we hope to see you there.  For those of you not able to get to Bury St Edmunds I have, where possible, provided a product link.  Remember if you can't see what you are looking for on the website then do not hestiate to contact Mandy and she will let you know if it's in stock or whether she is able to order it.  You can also make contact via the Facebook page
