Assorted Bottle Thingies...

So suddenly I love these pale green glass bottles and have managed to stockpile somewhat of an arsenal of them. This is the beginning of my exploration of color possibilities. Old standby burnt umber keeps jumping in there but silvers and metallic champagne are feeling rather nice. We'll see where this goes.

This upper right piece has translucent polymer clay wings (as does the lower example), painted and glazed. The center is a casting of a very old crusty broach I dug out of gramma's trinket box. If you've got a gramma, she probably has a trinket box. These are good things to raid if given the opportunity. Just sneak in some two part epoxy mold making goo and you should have plenty of time to pull off a couple of good molds. I suggest doing this under the cloak of darkness or after gramma has had her evening sherry.
