UFO's, WIP's and NESY's ....... Unfinished Object, Work in Progress, Not Even Started Yet .... we all have them, don't we? I am trying to reduce the pile!
This one is definitely a NESY. I have had this box for three or four years and bought the Graphic 45 sheet of paper two or three years ago, specifically to use this image on the box. I even put the blank box on a shelf so that it was in plain sight and therefore would motivate me to do it! It's been there about a year ..... or so ......
The box after priming
Painted gold as a base colour for the crackle glaze
Crackle glaze applied, left to dry, over-painted with cream
I missed photographing a couple of steps LOL, but here is the box with Venetian paper adhered to it and a gold line on its base. Also the lid with the image, mosaic tiles around the edge and metal corners which have been alcohol inked to colour them.
A close up of the finished box
I am so pleased this is now finally finished - after three years or so of procrastination, it took a week overall, one step every evening after work and then the final bits this weekend. I have put it back on the shelf and am waiting to see when DH notices that it is done ........ :-)
