I really love decorating boxes. It may seem a difficult thing to do, but by simply using a stencil, some stencil paste and Mya chalkpaints you can achieve a wonderful result.
To customize this box I have used:
A cardboard box
Turquoise Mya Chalkpaint
Transparent textured paste with microbeads
To start off, I have stenciled on the lid of the box the map of Europe using stencil paste. It is applied with a spatula or with an old credit card.
I later apply stencil passte all over the box making an irregular effect.
Once it is dry I have painted the surface with Turquoise Mya Chalkpaint, this is a fantastic matt, high coverage paint.
After the paint dried I sanded the surface, specially certain areas, to make a worn out effect and to make the map reappear.
Finally, to make the map stand out even more, I covered it with transparent paste with microbeads with a small brush. We can achieve a similar effect by using transparent glue and glitter, beads, etc.
See you next time!
