More Bottles...

I've got a bit carried away with these Bottles, but you can never have enough for an Apothecary. Even Ben made some last night when he got in from School. There's still some sitting on the tile, waiting for decoration.
It was also the Boys idea to turn the Sheep's Skull into a Cyclops Sheep Skull. I wouldn't want to find one of them in my fields. LOL....
I had another go at making another Bat Bottle and I've elongated the ears. I think it makes it look more Batty.
They were all nearly splattered with Black Acrylic Paint this morning. I was shaking the Bottle and the top is faulty, it stayed on, but the paint came out from the screw on bit, well the paint went everywhere, all over me, the Kitchen table, chairs and floor. Good job I only had my PJ's on.

Debbie, I LOVE your bottle collection, and you are right one can never have too many for an apothocary! And I love how you made them too...I have a mason jar FULL of marbles and had no clue how to use them. Now I have an idea for some of them. =D

I love these cute bottles, Debbie. Are they made of polymer clay over a glass bead or marble? They are very clever...even without the bats.

I love the bottle with two necks :) and the Cyclop-sheep scul is a great idea!

Looking fab Debbie!You should try making one with two marbles. Sculpt the clay onto one, put another on top, sculpt clay ontop of that to make the bottle top. You could even do it with three smaller marbles so so its like a wibbly wobby bottle with clay inbetween each ball.
Oops at the spill, i do that all the time, lol.

Its good to see you creating again Debbie :o) cant wait to see Bens 'stacked one with talons'! I had a hard job finding marbles when I went looking for Kat's ones, let alone finding ones of different sizes.... methinks I may have to venture into a bigger town some day but Im not going far if theres cyclops sheep running loose LOL

I love these bottles! The bat ones are still my favourite though! ;o)

I'm always spilling things, in fact now I have a special top that I wear whilst I'm doing something that washing won't remove!!! lol

Love these! I have been hoarding marbles I find at flea markets to try my hand at these. They look fun and hoping I get them right. (me and clay don't always get along; sometimes I overbake and it crumbles!grr!)
