How To Create An Inventive Steampunk Altered Box With DecoArt

Hi all
I created a steampunk box for the Decoart Blogger Outreach Program.

I covered the whole box in black gesso and once dry i then used a stencil with black modeling paste over the box.

I dry brushed the box over with Silver Spark, Copper Kettle and Gold Rush Metallic Lustre. For the fastening i painted the metal with gesso and then Texture Sand Paste which i molded over the fastening. I then painted it with Gold Rush Metallic Lustre and Quinacridone Gold to give it a rust wore look.

I used Chipboard cogs and embellishments i had created using a mold and casting plaster. I first painted everything with black gesso and then metallic lustre but it was too clean so i added texture sand paste and more Quinacridone Gold to weather it.

Thank you for visiting.
