Wine Bottle with Polymer Clay "Antique Gold"

I love the texture of this bottle.  It is also inspired by my previous bottle Magic in a Bottle & Pure Elegance. The clay used in this bottle are premo black, burnt umber & copper. I combined black and copper clay for the top part of the bottle. It was a great combination. My intention was to create something vintage.  The shape of the bottle is narrow and long. I thought, adding a handle on the side completes the look of the bottle. This bottle does not have elaborate details but using the textured sheet creates a beautiful & easy project. 
Materials used in this project:
Empty wine bottle
Premo Clays (black, burnt umber & copper)
Gilders paste (antique gold)
Pearl ex (gold)
Clay tools

Here's a closer look of the texture. I rubbed gilders paste antique gold and german silver after the bottle was cured for 45 minutes at 275C.
I also added that clay beads around the bottle for extra details.

I added flower tie using my extra copper clay at the neck of the bottle. I finished it with German silver gilders paste. 

This was an easy project and yet it turned out into a beautiful piece. 
I secured the handle with bakeable clay before baking to make sure it is secured well on the bottle.
