My wife's sister and her husband gave us this bottle of wine as a Christmas present during the most recent holiday season because our home major league baseball team, the Washington Nationals, won their first World Series a couple months earlier. We'll drink the wine on March 26, which is opening day of the 2020 regular season. Hopefully we'll also be toasting to the Nationals' win that day.

The bottle was etched and painted by hand.

Setup
A foam pedestal was covered by a black shirt. The background was a panel of white vellum, which reflected light onto the edges of the bottle to outline it. A small continuous-light lamp was above and in front of the bottle. The background was replaced during post-processing by a texture from InfiniteTexturePanel.com.

InfiniteTexturePanel.com is more than cool! I wanted some brightly colored vertical lines in the background and flowing onto the black pedestal. So, I quickly used Photoshop CC to paint some brightly colored vertical stripes onto a field of black. I then "told" the InfiniteTexturePanel to look through its more than 10,000 images for something similar. The texture I selected for this photo is one of several it quickly found that I liked without looking any further.

I like it Mike. May be you should make another photo with this bottle and the cap you uploaded ın your texture added photos thread. IMO they would look nice together.
