I finally finished the little wine bottle. Here it is. It’s 1 3/4 inches tall.
I don’t like it though. I might do it over. The label is too high, it should be closer to the bottom of the bottle. And for some reason, it looks more like a beer bottle than a wine bottle. I can’t figure out why. Maybe the neck is too short in comparison to the body?
OK, I just measured a wine bottle to see what the actual proportions are for neck to body. The bottle is 11½ inches tall, and the neck starts at 6 inches. So, I do need more neck and less body. Alright, I’m going to try another one. I guess it would have been a good idea to measure the actual wine bottle before I started. Oh, well, live and learn.
And look at the bright side. I know how to make a beer bottle!
If I can do a good job on this, I might be able to sell some. My friend is a wine consultant, and she said all her colleagues go crazy over any kind of wine decoration. So I could probably make a bunch of these as purse charms and sell them, if I can get it to look like what I envisioned.
