I've been working on some miniatures recently, and these altered bottles have been great fun. The tallest is five inches from the top of the cork right down, and it rather feels like a bit of fairyland when I see them together. I can imagine them as libation crocks for elves and leprechauns, can't you?
Three of the four incorporate the gorgeous Kroma Crackle of which I'm so fond (those flat sides made it MUCH easier to apply than on the rounded bottles), and this one is finished with hand-crafted beads and a piece of turquoise for a floral bouquet against some complimentary ribbons.

The light bounces in so many different directions on this one that it's opulent in the extreme.
