Heavily "aged" liquor

I had more bottles that that needed grunging up, so this time I made a tray of some old ass liquor. A couple of them already had labels, and the rest I added. Years ago, I bought a sheet of liquor labels on ebay.  They were made by Brooke Tucker....or, at least, marketed under her name. These are not the original labels, but photocopied ones (which is ok since I destroyed them, lol!!). Somehow, I don't think these would fit in one of Ms. Tucker's sumptuous settings, no :-/ ?? They look like something dredged up from a sunken ship, minus the barnacles!!


  1. Great bottles, really grungy. I love them :)

  3. Kiva, I immediately thought "Ghost Town". I have seen bottles like that here in AZ, in places like Tombstone and Jerome. Great bottles!

  4. I agree. They do look like bottles from a ghost town. I see a lot of those laying around out near Randsburg.

  5. Those look great!! Brooke would shudder if they were in one of her settings! LOL

  6. Hi Kiva,
    I'm glad I've found your blog - your work is amazing. Lucky me not to miss any of your newest creations from now on... Your bottles are fantastic, they would be perfect in any spooky scene...

  7. You know I love all your food creations but I have an ultra soft spot for these bottles. I just love bottles, life size, mini or giant ones. And when they are aged/shipwrecked/ ancient, even better!

  8. Muy buena composición.
    Estas botellas tienen curriculum :)

    Susan, I freaking LOVE glass, especially old bottles...and YES, both human sized and miniature!! I had to give up most of my collection when I moved from SF to Hawaii. Grrr.......
