This bottle is decorated with miscellaneous craft and hardware items to make it into steampunk art. Steampunk is an art form inspired by the industrial revolution. So this steampunk bottle has gears and hardware which depict "movement."
Total Time: 1 to 2 hours, allow drying time
1 flat bottle
white glue and paintbrush
miscellaneous crafts and hardware
homemade ink spray
Clean bottle with rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt, film, or stickiness. Using a wide paint brush, brush a layer of white glue all over both sides of the bottle. If there is a cork, you can make it looked aged with eye shadow and mascara, rubbing it onto the cork with your fingers. Allow to dry.
Add scraps of fabric to front and back of bottle with glue. Allow to dry.
On separate pieces of paper, design the front and back of the bottle using miscellaneous craft and hardware supplies, and embellishments. Take a picture of design for later use.
Spray bottle with metallic spray paint, using a misting motion and not completely covering bottle with the spray paint, allowing some of the white "aged" look to show through. Let dry.
Start gluing items to the front of the bottle, leaving out the embellishments you don't want painted. Let dry. Repeat process with back of bottle.
Using an ink spray (mixture of half rubbing alcohol and half acrylic paint mixed in a spray bottle), spray parts of the front and back of the bottle. Dry.
Spray varnish on both sides of the bottle and immediately add glitter if desired.
Glue the rest of the embellishments onto the bottle. Let dry.
