Altered Metal Box
I've had this metal pen box for a few months with no idea what to do with it. I love all this Egyptian so as soon as i saw these stunning Egyptian Resins available in store i knew exactly what to do.
I started by using a very rough sandpaper and scratched up the metal so the gesso would stick.
I gave the box a really good coat of white gesso.
I then wrapped the box with strips of ragged lace. (forgot to take photos)
Once dry i painted the box with white gesso and attached the resins with gel medium. I also painted the resins with white gesso.
I started by covering the fabric with a combination of lindy's spray,
(yellow rose of Texas, Glory of the Seas Gold)
I then dripped Lindy's starburst squirts
(Banff Blue) down from the top. I sprayed a lot of water to blend the colours together.
I also used Lindy's Magical Shaker
(Black Forrest Black). I used the shaker directly onto the resins and used water to spread the colour around. I added more
(Yellow Rose of Texas) until i was happy with the colour.
I then used Nuvo Crystal Drops (Grande) to highlight the details on the resins. I applied the (Grande) with a paint brush.
The photos don't show the light shimmer this project has. So pretty when the light hits it.
Thank you for viewing my project.
