Skull Box with DecoArt Media Line

I'm so loving the Media Line of products from DecoArt and have an altered wooden box to show today. I started with a plain wooden box, removed the hinges and fittings. I gave the box base and box lid a coat of DecoArt Matte Medium to give tooth to product that will be applied. I then Embossed some 300gsm cardstock and attached to the sides of the box  and box lid with DecoArt Matte medium. I then used DecoArt Modelling Paste applied through a stencil to the box lid. Whilst this was drying I used DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics to paint the sides of the box base. For the box lid I wanted the effect of carved wood and I think I achieved the look I was after. The lid was given a coat of Media Fluid Acrylic in black and once dry my stencil was then re positioned on the box lid and stippled with Media Fluid Acrylic in Titan Buff. A wash of Media Fluid Acrylic in Quinacrodone Gold was then applied. Once dried I gave the whole lid a going over with Andy Skinners Dirty wash treatment. Once dry DecoArt Crackle Glaze was then applied. Once this had dried a coat of DecoArt Black Antiquing cream was applied and wiped back to reveal all the lovely cracks. To finish the box base and lid was given a coat of DecoArt Ultra Matte Varnish to seal and protect. Quite pleased how this turned out.
