You will need:
-Champagne bottles (you could also use vases or glasses)
-Glitter in three shades (I chose Gold, Pink and Silver/Hologram)
-Glue (I used PVA but most glues will work)
Start by preparing your glitters for sprinkling. To achieve a graduating ombre pattern we need to take our three colours and use them to mix together three transition shades. This is the best way to achieve a smooth and blended appearance (see above image). As you will see the first and last shades are just straight pink and silver hologram and the middle three colours are the mixed transition shades.
To make transition shades/colours:
-Take about 1 tsp of the darkest shade, in my case the pink glitter, and add about 1/2 tsp of the gold
-On another plate mix 1 tsp of the middle colour (gold for me) and add 1/2 tsp of the darkest shade
- Again on another plate mix the 1 tsp of the lightest colour (silver hologram) with 1/2 tsp of the middle shade
You will need more then this amount to cover the bottle but you can mix as you go and layer on top of the already applied glitter. If you feel you need a bit more of one colour added to your transition mix feel free to do so. Once you have your glitters ready you are ready to start encrusting your bottle.
Step 1. Soak and remove the label
Step 2. Paint with glue
Step 3.Starting with the darkest shade at the base start sprinkling on your glitter right around
Step 4. Once the darkest shade is applied add the next (transition) shade
Step 5. Then add the third transition shade, brush the top part of the bottle with glue and add the 4th and 5th shades and leave to dry!.
I used a very rough 1.5-2" space per colour as a guide with the largest space dedicated to the 2nd and 3rd colours.
