Here is a close up of the texture. 
Of course it makes a great magnetic message board.
Here it is just background texture for a plant and my darling bunny. 
I was so enamored of my Dot candy mold that I couldnt believe it when I found the Bottle mold while on vacation in South Carolina! This added a bit of weight to my luggage!

Here is a close up of the "texture". 

While on a shopping trip with my BFF, I spied this candy mold. Now I thought it would be great for her new home but much to my dismay, and moments later my delight, it did nothing for her....at all! So I bought it for my home. I love the texture it brings to a room. I have used it in a couple of different ways, and plan to use it in many more.

Jim, I think I'll keep them for a while but I am not surprised that you have a plan. You seem to be able to come up with a plan as soon as you see something. A talent I do not have...I have to think about it for a while.

Suzi, what a fabulous job that must have been!! I admire anyone with the artistic talent that you have. I do have an unusual passion for old metal animals of all kinds, but my bunny is one my faves.

And BTW, I still don't my friend has changed her mind about them!!

I wish I could find cool moulds like this or any!!!...I was a sculptor for 2 different companies that serve customers all around the globe...and I was the mould designer/sculptor! Great job! Oh..and love the bunny..I have a similar one I inherited...an Aunt sent one to my Dad, he was born in the year of the Rabbit!

artteachergirl writes: I'm crazy over both molds!!! Texture is my favorite element! I'm with Jim...bottles are definitely Andy Warhol-ish. Wonderful finds! Posted: 8:53 pm on June 12th
JunkArchitect writes: You really do find the oddest, yet coolest junk! I love both molds and what you did with them. When you're tired of the look I'll take them off your hands...I have plans. The bottle mold reminds me of Andy Warhol.
