Today I have an Altered Box Project for you.
I am using some of the Helmar adhesive range which is great for this type of project and I am definately giving them a workout.
Here is a pic of the main pieces I used. A cardboard soapbox, some bits of Chipboard, Lace, Metal Horse Legs, Handles & Corners and a
Pegasus Resin Creation.
First thing is to attach the lace using 450 Quick Dry Adhesive
I have used some of the Super-Tac Glue to adhere the Chipboard pieces.
To attach the Box Legs I have once again used the 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
I thought I would use the Tiger Grip to attach the crown.
Once everything is glued on and dry, give the whole box
2 coats of Black Gesso.
Once dry I have used Tattered Angels Spray "Fully Purple" all over.
I have used some White Gold Wax all over, but thought it was a little plain so decided to use the Gemstone Glue to adhere some Swarovsky Crystals around the sides.
To colour Pegasus I have used several waxes to layer up the colour, (if you dont have waxes, metallic paint will do)
I decided to add some other Sworovski Crystals to Pegasus's Crown,
and a couple on each of the metal corners, but before I
glued her on I added some Moon Crystals using the Gemstone Glue.
Here are some more pics of the finished project.
