Blue and white altered white bottle

Watch my art process in my YouTube Channel Clynis Creations

Altering or upcycling wine bottles is one of the best ways that you can do as a project when you are looking a unique home decor. I know, mixed media can be a little intimidating, and that is what it felt like when I did my first project.

Like I have mentioned in this art process video, this is my second time of making am upcycled wine project. The challenging part about doing mixed media on surfaces of wine bottles is that embellishments do tend to slide when the adhesive is wet. So, it takes longer to do this project because the adhesive needs to dry further before layering more embellishments.

In this art process, I am also showing how to make embellishments using Prima IOD Moulds and hot glue sticks. I learned this from watching Prima’s live tutorials in their Facebook Page when Riika demonstrated the technique to their viewers.
