A magical elixer or a deadly potion? You decide.
The skull image was stamped on oven bake clay and shaped to the bottle. In order to keep the shape, the bottle had to go in the oven also. The glass did not fracture as the temperature and the time spent in the oven was not explosion inducing.
Once the label was cooled, I used embossing pad and gold embossing powder to detail the skull image and the label edges. Note to self: next time put embossing powder on before it goes in the oven.
In order to get a gold topper, I used gold embossing powder. I was surprised how well the cork turned out.
