Crew member, Angélique Jarrier, shares with you her process of achieving this dreamy and airy aura. Such fun way to just play, play, play and make something beautiful.
‘For a long time, I wanted to alter a bottle. One day, after watching Tinker Bell cartoon with my daughter, Lilou, the inspiration struck. The magical universe of the little fairy tempted me to create this enchanted bottle for my daughter. She thinks it a fairy house.’ – says Angelique.

Do you want to know how Angelique achieved this mesmerising effect? She’s taking you through her steps below.
The first step will be to completely cover the bottle with Decor&DIY paint. You will work very hard with inks, so do not hesitate to make two thick layers with the paint.
With your finger, in streaks add some modeling paste.
Cover the bottle with a layer of white gesso. Once dry, sand it to bring out the base color. This will give the bottle an old and worn look.
Decorate the bottle with a multitude of embellishments, and sprinkle everything with TA glimmer mist.
This amazing bottle will become a stunning centre piece on your table or side-board.
