Altered bottle

Hi friends 
Happy Morning! 
Today i have come up with another mixed media on an empty glass bottle. It was really fun making this and i have used some craft sand and gesso. This particular bottle is different in shape i mean each row has a dent of equal width. ufortunately those pics got deleted :(
 so in every alternate coloum i have used sand and in another left  over coloum i have designed with stencil and gesso

Final view of the bottle

Here u can see i have colored alternatively with 2 different colors. I have used chalk paints Duck green and French blue from Papericious As u can see in center also there is some unevenness.
so i have adhered some gauze to give rough texture ( which is optional) and painted with chalk paint blue and pink mix to give purple shade

Then i have stuck some shells using Soft gloss gel in wave manner.

Expressions Stencils Wave

I have designed alternatively using the stencils and sand texture paste 

This is how it looks after drying

This is the final and interesting step . Playing with colors.I have used blue, bronze, gold to give some metallic finish.

Close-up pic shows that i have used some sequins, tubes, pearls and seed beads in alternate space to give some rich metallic look

Finally i have used  3-D gold outliner from fevicryl  to add some bubbles. 
and here is the final product.

Supplies Used:
Empty glass bottle
Papericious Gesso
Papericious acrylic colours
sequins, pearls, beads from my stash
Papericious soft gloss gel
Expressions stamps stencils Wave design
craft sand
