7. Remove the masks and using a brush and a little water bring colour from the hounds tooth pattern within the bottle around the outline of the man (this will lighten the background in that area and help to make it appear as if you really are looking through the glass bottle) and drag the green of the shading on the bottle in a similar way.
8. Tatter the edges and age with a combination of Distress Inks in walnut stain and aged mahogany.....then fix to the black background mat.
It wasn't till I really looked at the finished piece that I thought ooh er! A man trapped in a bottle? A skeleton embracing a bottle? Bit on the dark side but I liked making that one :) See you again soon!
