French Themed Altered Bottles Tutorial - Bottle Patinas & Applying Vellum & Transparency Film

You can see from the picture above, I’ve gone altered bottled crazy creating 15 sample bottles to give you lots of ideas for altering your own bottles.  In the video tutorial below, I demonstrate a variety of easy ways to add a patina to glass bottles using various spray paints, crackle paint and printed tissue paper.  I'll also explain how to apply images printed on transparency film and vellum.

TUTORIAL
To apply the collage images and ribbon/lace I used a Xyron Creative Station.
