Altered Bottles

This is my entry for the SaWo challenge this week. This is a nail polish bottle that was cleaned out and covered with turquoise colored Fimo clay . I gave the clay a hammered copper look by using the end of a nail punch. I baked the clay bottle in the oven (about 30 min.) and when completely cooled I painted with a copper metalic paint and added bead embellishments. The top is left open and can hold a tiny spray of dried flowers.
