Autumn Leaves

Another painted bottle, covered this time with autumn leaves of all shapes, sizes, and hues.

I randomly searched Google Images for 'Autumn Leaves' and the search results led me to making my own bottleful of leaves.

What I love about this particular bottle is the way you can see through to the leaves painted on the other side. I feel the translucence of the paints has been used to very good effect in this one.

And of course, the gossamer quality of the paint only adds to the look. Here's a close-up view for you.

This bottle definitely counts as my sheer favourite! :)

V.nice - will do it with the NEEV kids one of these days....What paints did you use??? Acrylic + glass paints or did you mix fevicol with paint to get the embossed effect??? Do revert ASAP.

Thanks, dear S! I used a combination of glass and ceramic paints. Hope your kids enjoy it.
