Behind the Scenes Project Message in a Bottle


Project Message in a Bottle is pretty much what it sounds it is: I am creating little pieces of art, put them in a bottle, close them off with cork, cotton fabric, wax and hemp string, and then release them into the wild, hoping that someone will find them. More about the project can be found here: flaschentiger.wordpress.com/

putting things together for the bottle. I created a hollow in the bottle from cork, wrote a tiny scroll to put inside. It will be capped off by the cork disk.
