Hi, its colour theme week again over at Tando Creative and for this I have decorated the *Tic Tac Toe Box* (without the noughts & crosses etc).
After I glued all the pieces together and added some gesso I spread some *white modelling paste* through Gio's pretty *Eighties* mask/stencil. When this was dry I went over the whole top of the box with the lighter blue in the colour them, then , putting the mask back over, I added the two terracotta colours and the dark brown. (I added the dark brown after this pic was taken)
I added *Crackle Glaze* over the two colours above and around the edge of the box. When that was dry I added *Red Oxide Antiquing Cream*, rubbing it back when it was dry. I added *Liquid Glass* to the dark brown areas.
The sides of the lid were painted in dark brown and the base was painted in the blue. I lined the bottom of the base with brown felt and the inside of the lid with patterned paper. Then I went round all the edges with a copper pen.
Inside the lid...
Thank you for joining me today, do come and visit again soon! Take care x
