Trinket Box…

This little trinket box was a  recent purchase from a Poundland store, I thought this would make a nice project.
Originally I thought I would paint the flowers separately, however I realised that as they are so close to each other it might work in one colour.
So I got my china paints out and painted the whole thing inside and out with a lovely deep pink colour.

As usual with these paints, I left it to dry overnight and then baked in the oven for 30 mins on a very low heat.
Once cold I removed it and decided to sponge some gold over it. I used just a little of the gold paint from a Pentel gold marker,

I gently sponged over the whole pot, I sponged more intensely at the edge of the lid and base of the bowl.
What do you think?

I think it looks rather nice painted.
Thanks for reading,
back soon, Love Rosie
