I really spent a whole day on this bottle. I prepped it with some gesso and started drawing and drawing... and drawing... why, oh why, did I not start with the smallest bottle? I mean, I like a good challenge but sheesh. Painting the bottle was.... a whole other struggle. I thought since it is a clear bottle and clear gesso I could maybe get away with water colors. This simply did not work well. I could not even begin to tell you what all I used on this fella. Let us just say... the painting is VERY mixed media.
Right now I have several more bottles soaking so I can take the labels off and get cracking on some more. Truly, I have put A LOTTA wine down the hatch based on the number of bottles we have..... CHEERS!
