by Sherri Welser
Creating this unique and fun wooden box project " Faith In A Box"with Proxxon Tools and Plaid paints! I love sweet little wooden boxes and wanted to find a way to paint and embellish and create that "Vintage" look. Using Plaid Folk Art Brushed metal paints , Proxxon Delta Sander, fun techniques and embellishments, I was very pleased with the outcome!
Wooden box ( hinged) Approx 5 x 3
Tissue paper ~Vintage design
Mat medium gel
Clear crackle paint
Sepia stamp pad
Bits and pieces of old jewelry
Inspiration metal words
1) Paint the wooden box with the copper metallic paint.
2)Brush the clear crackle gel over the paint and let dry.
3) Cover the inside of the box with the tissue paper. Gluing down with the mat medium.
4) Using the Proxxon Delta sander, sand the corners and edges to create that "worn look"
5)When crackle paint is dry, randomly brush the outside with the sepia ink pad to create that aged look. Add some of the Gold Brushed metallic paint for highlights.
6)Decorate the top and front of the box with metal inspirational words and jewelry pieces gluing in place with the E-6000 adhesive.
You now have a sweet little box of your own to store special trinkets!
