Boxes

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.
