Nice way to embellish other things besides bottles. I'm going to use it on book covers,

BEAUTIFUL!!! This is just the thing I've been looking for. I found a guy who teaches a workshop on texturing bottles, but he hasn't done a tutorial in a couple of years, *and* he charges around $160 for it. YIKES!

Thank you so very much for this tutorial. I'm going to get right on it!
