Altered Jar!

An altered jar I made, mostly just to see where it would go, but also entered in the May (2018), Reneabouquets Mood Board Challenge on Facebook.

The jar I’ve had sitting around for a while, the top I found while digging up part of the yard last month, and the butterfly was left hanging on a stump by the previous owners. I washed everything up and set them aside without any plan for them at the time, but I decided to see what I could glue together this month.

After I added the Moulds to the jar, I coated everything with white gesso, then started layering on the paints & when I thought that was too “bright” I decided I should FINALLY try out the Baked Textures!

That mass of “netting” on the underside of the top piece is actually some “spider web” I picked up at the 99¢ store this past Halloween! I needed something to…cover…the top of the bottle, but I also wanted something different. After I got the “web” on I just randomly dribbled some JudiKins Diamond Glaze on and added the Silver Pink Shard Glitter Glass from Reneabouquets!

To add some shine to the butterfly, that was painted with Vicki Boutin paints, I added Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass from Reneabouquets!

The jar was painted with Prima’s Opal Magic “Blue Gold” on the bottom side of the flourishes, and Prima’s Sparks “Mermaid Sparkle” above the flourishes, while the flourishes themselves were painted with Opal Magic “Yellow-Blue” before having a layer of “Ancient Amber” Baked Texture added!

For the coloring of the lid, I mixed some “Mermaid Lagoon” Distress Oxide with some Vicki Boutin Iridescent Glaze, spritzed in a bit of water for easier mixing, and painted it on! And that rust all over? “Chunky Rust” Baked Texture! Absolutly Awesome!
