Something Different Saturday...
There are probably far too many pictures on todays post but I got a bit camera happy with this box. I made this box for my let lockers loose show to highlight a different technique with gilding fakes and I have to admit I love how it has come out.
I stared by covering all the parts of the MDF treasure box using fake and glitter glue and cut n dry foam. I left the glue for about 5 minutes to make the glue key to the surface. It takes a little bit longer on MDF to go off but the best way to tell is that the glue goes clear form a blueish colour.
Next I added Verdigris gilding flakes form Cosmic Shimmer and smoothed off the excess with Rubit Scrubit.
I then added the metal corners from Creative Expressions again using cosmic shimmer glue.
I hope you don't mind all these pictures!
