Calling all boozy crafters! Or crafty boozers! Or just creative types who enjoy a challenge and ALSO like the idea of lining their pockets with dollar, dollar bills, y’all…
Important News: Patrón Tequila has launched a bottle art competition called Art of Patrón, where fans and artisans across the country are called upon to create pieces of art using the iconic glass bottles. For years people have been re-purposing Patrón bottles, giving them a second life in the form of unique artwork and functional items. Recognizing this trend, the brand decided to get in on the game. By PAYING you for your creative brilliance! The grand prize winner will receive $10,000 and nine finalists $1,000 each. So…what are you waiting for?? To find out how you can enter your artistic masterpiece to the Art of Patrón check out their site for details and official rules.
This silver beauty will be your canvas:
For inspiration, check out last year’s winning entry from Brandon Montgomery. His creation, Batalla de los Espiritus is a custom chessboard supported by 20 bottles and topped with 32 mini Patrón bottles and 16 hand carved corks. ¡Bravo! Brandon was not kidding around.
I’m even getting in on the action! Check out my starter kit! This might be my most favorite box of items ever – arts and crafts supplies AND booze?!
I just have to make sure I don’t sip and craft too much at the same time. I’d like for my creation to come out more cute and less hot mess. But, you all can be the judge of that! I’ll be revealing my Patrón bottle makeover in a couple of weeks to, hopefully, inspire those of you interested in throwing your hat in the ring. What do you think I’m going to come up with?? Gold stars (and perhaps a boozy prize!) to the first person to call it!
The last day to submit your piece of art to is July 17th. They will announce the finalists and begin the voting process on or around August 10th. The winner will then be announced on or around August 28, 2015.
Best of luck!
