I am a collector of many things: vintage books, vintage bottles and jars, seashells, metal thermoses, glass insulators, gemstones, rocks, and stones to name a few. I have them scattered everywhere. One of the studio spaces houses many of my collections: the thermoses, the glass insulators and some of the vintage bottles. I was playing with some ICE Resin® and decided to try it on a couple of glass bottles. I love how they turned out.
Let’s gather our supplies.
Step 1: Mix ICE Resin® according to instructions, and allow indicated wait time.
Step 2: Tear a vintage book page to fit on the side of your bottle.
Step 3: Paint ICE Resin® on one side of the vintage bottle. Use the paint brush to add a bit of ICE Resin® to the edges of the torn book page. Carefully dip the edge of the page in Cobalt Opals. Repeat on other side.
Step 4: Carefully lay the torn book page on the layer of resin you already painted on the bottle. Use the brush to paint ICE Resin® on top of the page as well. Allow time to cure.
I used tiny glass bottles, but you could easily do this with a recycled glass bottle or jar. You could personalize them by photocopying a favorite photo to use. They would make great gifts or table center pieces for a wedding. The possibilities are endless.
