Piano Jewelry Box

It appears I forget to share my Piano Jewelry Box.  Since, I give away most of the items I finish as gifts,  I normally have to wait until after their birthday blog about it.

The piano box was ordered from Amazon in November with an expect delivery date in December.  It was delayed so many times, Amazon threaten the supplier with cancellation if they did not ship it.  It finally arrive in early January 2017, which left me with only two weeks to finish the box and ship it out.

The box was finished with ebony stain.  I wanted to get it dark, really dark, like a grand piano.  The box appeared to have the keyboard cover down, so I did not have to paint keys on the piano.  The name plate was made with polymer clay. The balls on the legs were painted with silver acrylic paint and numerous coats of polyurethane to give it a high gloss shine.

I thought about putting music notes inside the jewelry box, but after some thought and test runs, I decided the space inside was small and it would not hold much.  So, I made polymer clay roses and put them inside the box.  The leafs were left overs from other projects.  The roses were glued down and coated with several layers of polyurethane.

Maybe I should write a blog about how I make roses from clay.  I make them differently than what I have seen on other websites.  And, I have been making the same way since the Play-doh days.
