This is a brown glass bottle given the look of a filthy, aged ceramic whiskey jug with just a little paint and dirt. Your read that right--dirt. I embellished this bottle to hold the whiskey for this year's Halloween party. Each of our liquors and mixers was given a unique and spooky or gross-sounding title. (This one was tame by comparison) This bottle started out life as a Mississippi Mud Black and Tan bottle. I have one of these bottles and it has seen quite a lot of use but the paint/dirt layer mimicking the unglazed ceramic section has remained in tact despite being handled a lot.
Step 1: Supplies
A Mississippi Mud Black and Tan Bottle - label removed and empty (or substitute similar jug-style glass bottle)
Cork to fit the bottle - I bought mine in the hardware store. They can often be found loose in the bulk section in a variety of sizes.
Clear Spray Paint - matte finish
Beige Acrylic Craft Paint
Foam Paint Brush
Dirt - yes, from the garden
Sharp Craft Knife and/or Tweezers
