Directions:

NOTE: Allow to dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Dampen paper towel with rubbing alcohol and clean wine bottle. Spread thin, even layer of White Gesso onto bottle using 1" flat brush.
  2. Mix Cobalt Blue Hue and White Gesso 1:1. (Do not blend completely; allow various shades of Cobalt Blue Hue to show.) Pick up various colors with 1" flat brush and paint remainder of bottle, painting around bottle, instead of up and down.
  3. Adhere decorative trim around bottle where Cobalt Blue Hue and Cobalt Blue Hue/White Gesso mix meet. (Refer to photo.)
  4. Draw butterfly wings on piece of musical scrapbook paper or use provided pattern. Cut out wings and paint using ½” flat brush and Hansa Yellow Medium and Pyrrole Red.
  5. While wings are drying, paint simple, curved butterfly body using Carbon Black and ¼” shader brush. Once wings are dry, crumple, unfold, and adhere them to bottle, near butterfly body. Use Matte Medium to adhere, being sure to add Matte Medium to top and bottom of wings. Use handle end of paintbrush to add dots around wings. Use fine tip marker to add few doodles.
  6. Adhere jewels around bottle. Mix Cobalt Blue Hue and White Gesso 3:2 and use to randomly paint some jewels.
  7. Adhere jewels and pearls to flower centers of trim. Use handle end of paintbrush to add dots staggered along top of decorative trim and bottle.
  8. Wrap colored string around neck of bottle and tie to prevent unraveling. Hang several charms from string.
