NICOLA ALLEN

 I cut some of the partitions away with scissors to create bigger boxes and then painted the whole thing with gesso and then copper acrylic paint. 



Next i gave it a coat of rust paste and texture paste to add the rust effect.




Once the box is painted  you can start arranging the pieces into the boxes. I added cog charms and other metal charms to the boxes 



I used plastic skull beads and painted them to match the box




You can fill these little bottles with micro beads  and other tiny bits to create curios.


Thank you for visiting

  6. I love this, been a while since I have seen this sort of altered art piece, and I find them so inspiring! The individual parts are so cool to start with and it looks like you enjoyed making it too? I have so many random bits and bobs I intended to use for a project like this, but they alas, are still hanging about. Thanks for the boost in motivation and inspiration! Annabel x

    1. Hi Monica
      I use a brand called Best Glue Ever. It dries tacky so it holds all the little bits on.
