Here are the boxes I did as Christmas presents for my nieces and nephew. I decided I could not leave my “superhero fan” nephew out, especially since his sister were getting boxes.
For Kegan’s box: I used an acrylic type pour for the letters and loved to design, but it got lost on the blue stained wooden background. Since he loves superheroes, I used metallic paint to do a geometric design. Inside the box, I made crosses from polymer clay and silver puff paint as the grout.
The pastel box: The top of the box was painted in glow in the dark paint. (Yes, I used a lot of glow in the dark and neon glow paint this Christmas season.) The outside of the box was done in chalk paint base and a sponge technique to get the different colors.
I put polymer clay crosses inside the box to resemble the top of the box. Both boxes was sealed with high gloss polyurethane.
