Art: Love Potion #7 (sold) by Artist Dorothy Edwards
have long held a fascination with glass bottles. When I am out thrift store shopping I look at all the bottles for potential mosaic-ability. I made this piece specifically for the Buddy Exchange my Mosaic_Yahoo group holds once to twice a year. My buddy admired the Love Potion #9 I did and requested something similar.

This piece was made with a heart shaped bottle which I painted with transparent Pebeo thermal hardening glass paints. Then I applied the words "Love Potion #7" in black stained glass. I found an angel statute and had intended to remove the wings, but when I nipped it, the cut was so perfect to nestle by the bottle neck - a happy accident. I applied the porcelain angel half with resin and the tempered glass using silicone ahdesive. The stopper has a porcelain dove. Both the angel and the dove were painted with gold for definition. For grout I used white grout with a red colorant.

This piece is sold.
