Then add your own description of the contents.
i.e. collection method, quality, bad before date :)

You are the best! I feel about potion bottles like most people feel about tombstones. You can't have enough of them and the get more intricate every year!

Thank You Guys....I tried to get my bottles & fake food for the Cadaver Cafe & Candy Kitchen done this year but I did not make it. So all the projects are still sitting in various forms but no where near completion. Today I did finally find some small skull heads that I want to use for on top of some of the bottles & I bought more insects to put on my creepy caramel apples.

As soon as xmas is over I'll be starting to work on these bottles, jugs & jars in a serious mode.
Wanna have some type of witches cave next year.

And what is the best way to get the label on the bottle? Just plain white glue, or something else? I know, stupid question, but maybe there is something better (like mod podge) that works better.

Actually that is a very good question, I have never made a potion bottle yet either and i'm not sure what glue would be best to stick to glass.

I used clear Cellotape, you didnt notice it at all....

click to expand pic to fullsize:


I put the cellotape on Horizontally as vertically tended to make it bunch.... i think this is correct might be the opposite lol.

These were in the making process.... a few of the labels got battered during filling the jars as my ink wasnt waterproof but this just made them look older.


If any of you want the Labels, just click and save the fullsize image version:


Just Print out, Cut Out and Cellotape onto your jars :)
