Craft manual Cigar box in mixed media style by Nicole

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.
