Thing-a-Day - 5/28 - Wooden book box  


Materials:

Purchased "book" (wooden hinged box)
Acrylic paint
Fail

I'm not entirely thrilled with how this turned out, but I am working on another Seekrit Projekt and so don't have time to obsess. Maybe I'll come back and add some gold details on the spine later... O the other hand, it does not shut quite right, having warped a bit over the years. Maybe I'll stack something heavy on it to see if it trues up before I invest more time.

In other TaD news, yesterday's post was for some reason accidentally marked "private" - I have now unblocked it. :P It is vastly more satisfying...

Texture it maybe? Also, I have gold ink that adheres pretty well to anything and a spray that sets acryllic.

Thoughts.

I had tried giving it a texture, but it didn't turn out quite right. I'm not willing to invest too much more time in it, but thanks for the suggestion...

I was *almost* going to say something about your decorative box, but decided I should have another beer instead.
