    went to market 3 weeks back and on the way in a supermarket bought a bottle of Amul's flavoured milk as I was feeling hungry [​IMG]. I saved the bottle & brought home. I kept a plant in a plastic container. So replaced the plastic container with this bottle after cleaning. The plant looked beautiful than before.

    Couple of days back saw a glass art work in a TV programme. They showed similar work on a plain piece of glass which was then converted into a Clock. Thought why not try that work in a bottle? So here it is for your views. Sorry folks, i forgot to take stage by stage picture. But one shot will show you the glue in semi dry form.

    A simple art which gives amazing texture depending upon the tool you use & your creativity.

    I didn't colour it as i like it as it is than a coloured one. Here is the procedure for you :-

    In any glass article, squeeze dabs of fabric glue here n there.

    Now let out the magical spell from your fingers! :) ha.ha.ha (yes you all have it!) With your index finger tap on it & spread it through out the surface in the same process.

    When the glue is semi dry, using back of a paintbrush or a pen, roughly run it over the semi dried glue to form some rough pattern.

    Let it dry for 5 hours

    If you want to colour it, you can colour using water based glass colours & spread it to make a nice varanajal on to your glass article & enjoy your interiors by giving it a feather touch make over!

    This makes a beautiful decor item which you can even gift after you do a creative work. I don't know whether it is water resistant. Have to check it out.

    Isn't it simple? [​IMG] Now cast the spell on every plain glass you see & turn it into gorgeous show piece with your magical fingers!

    Happy Crafting!

    Excellent idea........I think shades of color along with glue will give it a nice look.
