Create an altered box with moulds and paints

Hello !

You know my love of colors... Well, this new project is surely colorful !

This is a paper mache box covered with almost everything I had in hand ! (so not true, I really have too much stash...). I started by applying heavy gesso over a damask stencil. Next I created embellishments with moulds and paper clay like crazy !

Once everything was in place I added metal embellishments, buttons, stones and flowers, and covered everything with white gesso.

And when it was dry, I started playing with colors... I used Dragon Fruit medium (sorry discountinued but so pretty I had to use it), Fidji Velvet medium and Gold Metal Effect by Art Anthology.

Is it something you would have in your home or would offer to a friend ? I am thinking about starting an Etsy shop but have really no idea if my projects would have buyers... So I need your input on that, send me your cheers !

Thank you for stopping by today, it's always a pleasure to have visitors !
Have a great day !
