Craft manual Cigar box in mixed media style by Nicole
Veröffentlicht am: 27. Februar 2020

Every now and then you find things that are absolutely worth breathing new life into. Like a cigar box, for example. This time Nicole gave a new look to such a cigar box for you. Now it not only looks much better than before but also invites you to store things inside.

This wooden cigar box first got a layer of black gesso. Structure it got with the stencil of SnipArt „Metal 3„. My arrangement consists of a chipboard from SnipArt „Clock Background„, different gears and metal parts from Finnabair „Tin Heart’s„, „Winged“ and „Bottle Caps„.

Afterwards again a complete coat with black gesso.

Now I decided to paint the whole box with „Dark Velvet“ Acrylic Paint from Finnabair.

For more colour and liveliness I used „Romance Pink“ Metallique from Finnabair.

Then I wanted to emphasize the embellishments and the structure more and started a trial with „Metal Rose Gold“ by See Art! But this result was just too boring for me!!!!

Because contrast is always good, I tried my luck with the wax „Peacock„. Afterwards I set accents with the Wax „Aged Brass“ from Finnabair. Now I really like it.
