Flower Laser Cut Wooden Box

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.
P1090941

Then I started to colour in the leaves and edging in green. I used two greens as you can see.

P1090943The 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

Thanks for reading
back soon,
love Rosie
