Cinderella Jar- Inspiration post by DT Vidhi

Hello folks,

                    I am back on the blog with another Inspirational post!!! When you are surrounded by two little beautiful daughters, all you can think about is fairy tales and princesses !!! So this time I am inspired by Cinderella, her beautiful blue coloured dress, and sparkling glass sandals.

This is my first time altering a mini-object. It’s always difficult to alter a mini object as handling it is an issue and the space to be creative gets limited. I have still tried giving textures and put little elements on it. Hope you guys like it.

First, I took a ketchup jar and altered it for my mini project. I started with modelling paste, applied two to three textures through stencils on the Jar with a knife. Then I stuck small pieces of lace on it. Next, I covered the surface with white gesso.

Next, I randomly added mini and mega stones in soft gloss gel to give more depth to the jar. With the hot glue gun, I have tried giving a look of hanging flowers along with some small hearts and twinkling stars

I used texture paste to create a rough surface for the lid of the jar and as a highlight "a glass sandal " on the top. I took a toy sandal from one of my daughter's toys and gave a coat of white gesso. To make it look like a glass sandal, I added silver glitter on it. I used Lindy's magical shakers on the jar to give shades of blue colour, as Cinderella's Blue dress is quite tempting for little girls. In the end, I added some glass stones on the lid near the sandal to make it look like as it was winter and covered in snow. 

Hope you guys like my project and it inspires you to try your hands on your very own alter mini project !!! The jar is even smaller than Lindy's Magical shaker bottle !!!  It's quite challenging but the whole process was fun.
