I gave the wooden box a coat of gesso.
Randomly spread modelling paste around the outside edges and over the cross in the middle.
I mixed some texture sand paste with matte medium and coated the curved edges.
Once dry, I painted everything in paynes grey media paint.
The whole box was the painted with patina antiquing cream and then was rubbed back. A coat of matte medium was applied and allowed to dry. The outside flat edges were painted with white antiquing cream, and rubbed back and again a coat of matte medium was applied. Once dried everything was painted with watered down quinacridone gold.
Close up of the outside of the box.
I painted the inside of each little box in cobalt teal hue media paint.
Added pieces of script tissue paper and adhered with matte medium.
Painted the inside boxes with quinacridone burnt orange and then transparent yellow iron oxide.
Love how it turned out, just need to find something to put in it now.
