This week I have been back in the world of painting on wooden boxes.
It’s a really nice size box and I love the laser cut flowery lid.
Here’s what I did…
First I painted the background with silver acrylic.
Then I started to colour in the leaves and edging in green. I used two greens as you can see.
The flowers were next – two shades of lilac….
Then I got a bit carried away – adding a dotted pattern …
Next came some gel which I added all around the edges.. took a while and I slightly regretted starting but I kept going and luckily so did the gel!
Once the top was done I painted the base in the lilac and then with a blast from the past I sponged silver paint on top of the lilac…
and that’s it all done, quite a subtle colouring I think.(Although the whole thing gently sparkles with a glittery paint)
This box is for sale in my Etsy shop
