Hand Painted Box Easy Way

Posted: March 26, 2013 in crafts

The idea for this project came from looking at Russian trinket boxes . They are really colorful and detailed . I didn’t want to spend a lot of time on a project but wanted similar results . This is what I came up with :
Step 1 . Find a plain untreated wooden box you like and paint it red . I used an acrylic spray paint . Let it dry and do a second coat . Three is even better . I did only two .
Step 2 . Find a tissue with a floral pattern you like and glue it all over the box with an all purpose school glue . Let it dry .
Step 3 . Use oils or acrylics to color the design . Let it dry . Varnish . Display and enjoy .Hand Painted Box Easy Way
