All the details of how I made it are over on the EP blog and I do hope you will pay me a visit over there. I thought I would share the blunders and out-takes on here though, but don't tell them, as they will think I am such a klutz, and I want to keep my image intact at least for August! Well, I messed up so many things along the way. You know that danger period, when you have finished a project, but haven't photographed it yet? That's the worst time to have a disaster isn't it? Well, as I mention over on EP, I had bid for the decanter stopper on e bay and it is absolutely stunning and dictated my whole colour choice. It just sat perfectly in the neck of the bottle whereas the one that came with the bottle had screwed in place. I said to Colin, 'have a look at my project and see if you like it', picked it up and the glass stopper went flying across the laminate floor and sheered in half. (well, pre-flood we had carpet so a softer landing). So it is now smoke and mirrors (and blu-tak) for the purposes of the photographs. I am thinking I will use the original stopper and colour it with alcohol inks. Colin is going to grind down the blue one so it is smooth, so you will spot it on a future project in a new guise as a knob!
Hope I can get through the rest of August without dropping anything!
