Crafts: Bottle and Clay Art
|These are all the materials we used: bottles, air-dry clay, clay tools, tissue paper, mod podge glue, hot glue, foil, paper bowls, and paint.
|We started by cutting the tissue paper.
|We put the Mod Podge in the paper bowl and used sponge brushes.
|We coated the bottle with the glue and laid the tissue on the bottle. We smoothed the tissue out with the brush but left some wrinkles for effect.
|The final look with tissue on the bottles. I only did this method on two of my three bottles.
|Next, we worked on our bottle's caps. We used foil and hot glue for this step.
|I made a ball out of the foil about the size of the cap and glued it on top.
|I added the clay on next.
|This is the clay and tools we used.
|My cap with clay and free hand design.
|My first bottle had no tissue on it. This one is my desert scene.
|This was the second one I did. Since I love exploring abandoned places, I created an old wood fence, rusty hinge and barbed wire wrapped around the bottle.
|This bottle was heart shaped and reminded me of the 1970s and hippies so I decorated as such.
|A peace sign with fringe on top.
|These are the end products. I really like how they turned out.
