Polymer Clay Wine Bottle "Spring Blossoms"

I've been busy working on spring projects. I have made a few of this idea on vase, canvass and reclaimed wood. I thought I should do it in wine bottle. This bottle calls for spring. Spring is here. 
I enjoyed working on wine bottle. I love what I can do with it. 
I used white and red clay to create a light pink color. The textured layer on the bottle is made out of scrap clays I have from  my previous project and I finished it with Pearl ex powder.  It's a beautiful bottle. 
Materials used in this project:
Empty wine bottle
Premo clays (white, red, burnt umber, blue granite)
Pearl ex powder (antique gold, bronze, micro pearl & pink)
Texture sheet (sand by makin's)
Clay tools

I created the flower slightly larger than my previous work and finished it with pearl ex.  Leaves are stamp with rubber stamp to create the impression. 

I used the makin's sand texture sheet for the background and finished it with gold and bronze. 
It created a nice contrast. I love how it looks. 

Trunk and branches are sculpted using umber burnt premo clay. 
I designed it spreading the front of the bottle. It really turned out well. 
It is just exactly what I imagined it to be. 

This bottle is cured at 275 C for 55 minutes in the oven.
I sealed it with PYM II.
I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for visiting my blog.
