Yesterday i got to work and completed various potion bottles. Some are still only half way through and need some work, and tomorrow will start a load more.
But today i decided to make some love potions. I designed these tiny little vials and really pleased with how they turned out.
I wanted to fill them with resin but was not sure about colouring it, so decided to fill them with coloured scenic water. They will have tiny corks in the top once complete so will be fully sealed.
Well i have spent 3 hours just filling... wait for it... yes, just nine of them and gave up on the tenth!
I use the microwave to heat and melt scenic water, but then my microwave (a new one) seems to have a mind of its own.
Its going back to the shop asap and asking for a completely differnet one that actually works, and (like magic) turns, and that doesnt make me spend the entire morning.... yes, swearing and cursing and using every horrible word you can imagine. I have even whacked it several times (hurt my hand) and was close to chucking it out the door, lol.
Luckily nobody is in with me today because im like a mad woman that wants revenge.
Anyway, lol, at least nine of them are filled, and i have finally calmed down.
Heres the pics and if i ever look at love potion again lord only knows what will happen!
They need some little tags, a heart label and some pretty string to hang them up.
Tomorrow i'm off to the dentist again for some more torture. Having my front temporary teeth that really are like having stones in my mouth removed. In place of the stones i'm getting my new caps and bridge and some more root canal treatment.
Wish they could do everyhting in one day!
If you normally melt your scenic water in hot water and fancy having a go at using the microwave instead be very careful. It boils and could burn easily.
I put the amount i need in a ceramic pot and keep my eye on it as it melts. If its high up in your lttle ceramic dish it could boil over and spill, so you have to be on the ready with the door release. Use kitchen towel to lift it onto a plate to carry. It really gets hot so be careful!
