Collection Box

Posted by DecoArt on Nov 29th 2016

I love configuration boxes and this MDF was an idea project, I wanted to create a soft barely there colour scheme with a vintage distress effect. 

Items Needed:


Apply 2 coats of DecoArt Media White Gesso.

Instruction Image #1

Apply Media Crackle paste to the sides and the front edges with a palette knife, random thickness to get a variety of crackle sizes.

Instruction Image #2

Also apply to the decorative embellishment for the top of the box.

Instruction Image #3

Adhere the paperclay embellishments with a strong glue and paint with White Gesso.

Instruction Image #4

Create a wash of approximately 80/20 water and Cobalt Teal and Raw Umber.

Instruction Image #5

Apply the wash to the edges brushing outwards allowing to spread out and pool in areas.

Instruction Image #6

Follow the same process on the embellishments, repeating and adding some areas with a neater solution.

Instruction Image #7

Apply the same to the decorations, but apply more colour and wipe back areas with a baby wipe.
