Angel Bottle

©Michele Emerson-Roberts 2015



I love this angel mold and made several extra full castings the day I made the casting for the Angel Baby card (where I used only a part of the mold). A dear friend that I will be visiting next month has a beautiful guest bathroom done in shades of royal blue with lots of blue glass bottles, jars etc. She is also a collector of Angels.

I purchased this decretive heart shaped bottle several years ago and it will be the perfect hostess gift with the addition of the Angel casting.


Supplies:

  • Any of the Arnold Grummer™ paper making kits
  • AG Cotton Press Angel casting mold
  • Scraps of white paper (think junk mail, etc.) 
  • Microwave, traditional oven, heat tool or a sunny window
  • Blender, cello sponges and soft towels
  • Westcott® scissors
  • BowEasy™
  • Beacon QuickGrip™  & ZipDry™ Adhesives
  • 24” of ½” iridescent royal blue ribbon
  • Iridescent glitter
  • Pastels, chalks or powdered eye makeup and applicators (tiny still brushes or cotton swabs)
  • Tiny bit of dried Baby’s Breath

Instructions:

  1. Follow the directions found in any of the Arnold Grummer™ paper making kits to create white slurry.
  2. Create one (or more to use later) of the angle castings.
  3. Dry the casting in the microwave, a traditional oven, with a heat tool or in a sunny window.
  4. When the casting is dry, use the chalks to very lightly add color to the angel’s cheeks, mouth, eyes, hair and flowers.
  5. Apply a thin coat of ZipDry™ adhesive to the angle’s wings and the flowers in her hair.
  6. Sprinkle the clear iridescent glitter onto the wings and the flowers.
  7. Set aside to dry.
  8. Attach the angel casting to the front of the bottle with QuickGrip™ adhesive.
  9. Use the BowEasy™ to tie a multi loop bow. Attach the bow and a tiny bit of Baby’s Breath to the neck of the bottle.

I will pick up a small bottle of Potpourri oil to add to the gift. I think she will enjoy the gift as much as I did creating it!
