Yes, they are. Of course, now I can't find any more like them at the store. Cheesy You have to use a light background, gold or silver works. But even a brightly colored tattoo doesn't show up on a fark background, I've found. I gave them time to dry, then did a few coats of good sealer.

25  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Necklace display and altered bottles on: May 06, 2015 11:50:56 AM
Four sides, each a double layer of foam board attached with aluminum tape. Sprayed the whole thing blue, and used fancy wrapping paper on the edges to hide the messy joins. I stuck a bunch of push pins into a scrap piece of foam and sprayed them the same blue, and I cut a square to cover the top. It sits on a lazy susan from the thrift store.  And once I'd loaded it with necklaces, I wrapped the whole thing in saran wrap for transport! It worked, but I think I need a cross piece, an x, top and bottom for extra stability inside.

Bottles! I've made a few for craft swaps over the years, but the recent altered bottle contest got me back into it.
These aren't the best pictures, but some have sold and the rest are packed away right now. I've used paint and old jewelry and washers and random stuff for the lids. The dragons and butterflies are temporary tattoos from the dollar store, well sealed, over spray paint. The butterfly bottle-also tattoos, but the bottle was both spray and hand painted, mottled shades of gold and rust for an aged look. The little bottles with the raised leaves are mini glass apple juice bottles, and more shimmery in person. A base layer of spray paint, and lots of hand painting over that. And I love Krylon triple thick spray sealer. I'm working on some fancier bottles now.

remember,when crafting that wheat products are forbidden by edict of the city council!
I'm way behind on the podcasts, too, but was lucky enough to see a live show-yep, Librarian. And since I work in a library I pretty much laughed my ass off all night.
