Glassy Affair

I’m back here after a long hiatus because my internet service provider knocked off our connection and kept us away from the Web for a whole month. But that meant some “extra time” for my creative pursuits, so I really shouldn’t complain. :)

Here’s a peek into what I have been up to in the last month. Glass has caught my fancy currently so I am painting bottles and trying out new styles and combinations. I have mostly worked with water-based ceramic and glass paints, and a couple of glitter outliners.

I plan to use these bottle-vases in my new home when we move there next year. How’s this for a tiny flower vase? It used to be a nail paint remover bottle.

I created a Ganesha glass painting using a similar technique but I’m not going to show you that now. Let’s wait till we get that one framed….

The second bottle-vase I plan to use for dry floral decorations; this was an antiseptic solution bottle before it landed in my hands.

I really love the way it came out, especially how I can see the objects on the other side through the glass.

Do let me know what you think of my bottle-vases!

The second one looks great! It feels so good when you turn an ordinary bottle to an attractive one, isn't it?

Thanks a lot, Vasudha. Of course, the feeling of having given something ordinary a brand new identity feels incredible! And whatever time and effort it takes, the joy it gives when finished is priceless. :)
