Yule Ball Bottle

This is a replica of one of the bottles used in the Yule Ball. The bottle is one I was given that just happened to be exactly the same size and dimensions as the ones featured in the film. I hand cut the snowflake from holographic paper and applied it to the bottle. The pumpkin shaped stopper was a bit of a challenge. I had to consider what material I could use that would look like glass. I decided that resin would do the job. I began by making the form from polymer clay and made a mould of it in silicone, I then cast the resin pumpkin from the mould. I think it was fairly successful, particularly as I had never made a mould from silicone or used resin. These are new skills I have picked up.
