"Gimme a whiskey, ginger ale on the side. And don't be stingy, baby." ~ Greta Garbo

I have been making liquor bottles, drinking glasses and other odds and ends for O'Leary's Pub. I've been taking lots of pictures so I can do another bottle tutorial. My first bottle tutorial can be found here.

I made all of the bottles, except the red one that has the Acient Age label, from pens that I purchased at the dollar store. I was able to get several diffferent shapes for both bottles and glasses. I also used clear push pins for the bottle necks, I found some at the dollar store that have a thinner "neck" than other push pins. I made the glasses from cut pieces of pens, mini plastic baby bottles (dollar store) and straws. I cut the labels from ads, they are much clearer than prinites.
A peek at the back of the bar.
That's all for now. I'll be back later to announce the winner of the Follower Giveaway!

What detail..it is great and I can't believe you could make the bottles they truly look real. Keep up the great work and the sharing of your pictures. Have a nice day.
