Altered Art Bottle - Winter Magic

 Welcome creative friends!


I was inspired to create another glass bottle in Altered Art 

suitable to the magic christmas time.


Tips & Tricks



Firstly I covered the whole bottle with Weathered Wood, a crackle medium from DecoArt,then, after a drying time, I painted that with Chalky Finish 'Serene'. 

The middle section was painted with diluted paint for better visibility of the door windows.



I love it to decorate the flat MDF shapes with 3d effects using a silicone cake mould 'Gothic window'

with air drying clay, only the outer frame of the mould was used

one of the

Sheet of Mini MDF Street Lamps 

was perfect
for a hanhing lantern over the window
so that it is well fixed, it was pressed into the not yet completely dried clay
 and additionally fixed with construction adhesive this glue fixes all MDF shapes
 very well on glass, but you should note that it has to dry overnight for a stable hold

under the window was glued

Rectangle Shape

 in small size as terrace, which gets additional hold by the swirls of the

Winter Trees & Snow Swirls

  4. I'm having difficulty finding the silicone cake mould 'Gothic window'. Could you tell me where you found yours? I absolutely love your bottle!!! You're so talented!

  5. Thanks so much, it isn't a mould, Gothic window is a MDF shape from Calico Craft Parts, I see I forgot the link above, I will add it.

    1. Only the frame is from a mould, some years old, but I found a link here


I always appreciate all your comments. Thanks so much!
