Grapes & Barrel Polymer Clay Wine Bottle

I love my new addition for this week.  It is a simple design yet elegant and captivating.  
This is my "Grapes & Barrel" Wine bottle. The faux wood technique I used in this project turned out really well and by adding the hanging grapes & vines around it creates a lovely accent. I achieved what I wanted for this bottle. It is like having a winery in a bottle. This piece may look simple but it will look lovely on your wine bar, kitchen counter or wine cabinets. I created a polymer clay wine stopper to complete the look for this bottle but if replaced with a real wine stopper it can be used again as a bottle.

I sculpted the vines using a combination of premo olive clay & copper clay
and the grapes is a combination of premo blue & purple pearl clay.
I cut leaves using leaf cutter and I used a silk leaf for impression.
All details were finished with gold & white pearl ex.

The Faux wood was creating using the faux wood technique and 
I added wood grain texture from Makins.
The stained the faux wood with piñata burrow brown alcohol ink
I added premo black clay for metal straps around the barrel & studs finished with silver pearl ex.

To finish the look of the bottle, 
I created a polymer clay wine stopper with grapes. The wine stopper made a nice addition 
to the bottle. I am pretty pleased on how it look.
