Remember this post where I told you I got some tremendous deals at an unexpected Michael's sale? Well, at that sale, I bought this ugly wooden box for about fourteen cents. It was 90% off.
How do you like me now? I altered it with modeling paste (Liquitex), sanded it down and did a paint job on it to make it look like wood. I used several layers of paint and finished it with some interference gold for highlights on the trim.
Tips: To paint metal, heat it up with your heat gun and then add the paint. The paint will glide right on- and stay put. Too tired to hunt for vintage sheet music? Feed some newsprint paper through your printer and the texture does an excellent mimic job.
Thanks for stopping by today! I am working on a detailed transfer tutorial for my review blog...look for that on Tuesday.
