Morning All, hope everyone has survived Easter so far and haven't overdosed on chocolate.

My offering this morning is an experiment! Recently saw a similar idea in a magazine, the idea was to have the light trails going around the outside of the bottle and thought i'd have a go myself, however when i was discussing it with a friend and epz member, Frordrangk, he challenged me to get the light trails inside a bottle. This is the result after 36 attempts. Really pleased with it too. Think the only thing i will change when i try it again is to have the light suspended by string instead of cotton, think that will give me more control.

It reminds Frordrangk of a genie escaping from a bottle, hence the title, What does it make you think of?

All C&Cs welcome

Thanks for looking

Good image with unusual effect created very well . Not so sure on using the old worn bottle , does have character but I think it throws off to many distracting marks . Kel

Have tried to clean that bottle, but to no avail, on the hunt for a suitable new oneSmile

Yeah - I agree about the bottle comments - the marks/dirt on that creates conflict between the smoke patterns and the bottle itself. A nice, flawless looking bottle would be the way to go. I'd recommend drinking wine... white wine as you get a clear bottle.

that said, very cool technique - never have thought of putting one in a bottle... probably not got a torch the right size actually..

maybe try different colours too - maybe more eye catching witha different hue

Think i might have tracked down a better bottle/vase, and yes the torch size is an issue, have one that is about an inch wide, but is still a challenge find a neck big enough.

Super result, Den. So very well done. I think tread might be too thin to work on. This is excellent!

Reminded me of ticker tape, so I thought it might be a ticker tape message in a bottle.
(The ticker used the same symbols as Morse code as a medium for conveying messages).
