Wow, yeh that's very cool! How did you evacuate the varnish from the bottle?
I can see this turning into a a series, better find some cheap sources of nail varnish :D

BTW: I have that exact same TV dinner table.. Except I use it for something else...

I didn't see the disclaimer "No fish were harmed during the making of this image" - I hope you can re-assure us ?

Excellent.
Well, you have me guessing.
How does that work?
So, the bottle is on a stand of some sort.

Did you use something to inject it in behind the bottle somehow?

Thanks all!

Haha! Cotton tied under the lid and then both ends tied together to form a loop over the lid so it then suspends in the water in a set place not moving. It's not a floater but a sinker so the weight of the bottle keeps the cotton taught.

The liquid is a colour matched acrylic paint that's been bonded warehouse the water to make it more liquidy when squirted via a syringe
