Molten time

It's July and the weather is making things molten 🌋

I've been upcycling bottles for about 15 yrs now - funny how it's become some new and neat thing to do 😅. I've been doing it for what seems like ages!

This square liquor bottle has been transformed into a molten showpiece, using Finnabair's copper crackle paste and 2 waxes. 

Yeah, the pocket watch opens for something different! 

Lots of molten goodness. The coloring looks similar to a copper penny when it's gotten older and a little oxidized.

The chipboard pieces were covered in iron paste - makes them look heavy and sturdy.

Oxidized keys for all those old time pieces...

Depending on how the light hits it and the angle, you either get a more shiny or more oxidized look.

I really love the look of this and that it's square. It's a perfectly masculine decor piece!

I'm entering this at SanDee and Amelie's, Creative Artiste, and Classic Design Challenge!
