Hello there! It's that time again for another pinterest challenge! This time I decided to continue with my gold leafing kick and gold leaf a couple of bottles.
Here is my pinterest inspiration-
The person that did this used the foil from gum wrappers, but I wanted something a little more permanent so I opted to use the metallic pens.
I started with two glass soda bottles.
I soaked them in warm, soapy water so that the labels would easily peel off.
There was still a little glue left over so I let it soak a little more.
I wiped the rest of the glue off and had two plain glass bottles.
I recently added a silver pen to my collection, so here are my materials.
For the first bottle I drew a few freehand triangles then added a few stripes. For the second bottle I taped it off and colored below the tape all gold.
Here is the finished product!
I plan to use these as water bottles for when we have company. I will probably use them as a part of the table setting for Thanksgiving.
