How To Create An Altered Box With Best Glue Ever

Hi all

I have a altered box to share today using Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect available here http://scraperfect.com/





Start off by painting a small wooden box with gesso and then paint over with chalky finish paint.




Stamp over the whole box with a texture stamp using dark green ink and leave to dry before applying modeling paste over the top with a stencil.




Use Best Cleaner Ever to clean the ink off you stamps and tools. 






Apply blobs of Best Glue Ever to the bottom corners of the box and then carefully attach the feet. Leave the glue to set. This glue is perfect for adding metal to wood because it dries fast and has a strong hold once dry unlike PVA glue which is a lot more runny so the bits tend to slid off while it tis drying.






I used clay with silicone molds to create the shapes which i painted with Quinaodone Gold fluid acrylic and then dry brushed with gold paint. Once dry i glued the heart to the wings and adhered it to  the box. I added mdf cogs around the front.




I rubbed a bit of bronze metallic paint over the box to highlight the wood grain a little.




Thank you for visiting
