What do you do with all those empty paint bottles ???? I received a message from another artist friend asking if I ever recycled the plastic DecoArt paint bottles when sculpting. I have used the caps but never really used the bottles. Well you know me my mind was going a mile a minute with several designs using the empty bottles. I decided to whip up a cute bunny and I thought it fitting to call her "Lil Sandy" after my very talented painting friend Sandy McTier who suggested the idea. Thanks Sandy! You can be sure I will be making more in the future as I do use lots of DecoArt paint creating my cuties.
My favorite DecoArt Product to use is the Extender. I use it as a blending medium to smooth all edges. I have tried all different mediums and found this works best with quikwood blending.

Next I used DecoArt dimensional effects to add a texture to all of the exposed plastics sections of the paint bottle and any where I wanted to give a little dimension. This product adheres well to plastics and then you can use acrylic paints.
Every bunny needs a little glamor sparkle! I used the DecoArt Decou Page as a sealer and sprinkled a pinch here and there of the DecoArt Glamour Dust to give her some sparkle and shine.
She was painted using all DecoArt acrylic paints. You could call her a DecoArt kinda bunny!
I hope you enjoyed seeing "Lil Sandy" coming to life using many DecoArt products including the empty paint bottles. Ohh I'm seeing piggy's Santas, Pumpkins and ghost in the near future , oh my I better get busy emptying more paint bottles.
