Sea Shell Painted Art Box

So here is the second art box

 I decided to glue on sea shell after I painted the box. I think I will do some more because I really like the process. These boxes make great gifts.  

So what do you think?


First Box Finished

So I finished my first box. It as a challenge with the eyes and nose.  

Gonna have to get some very detailed brushes for this project. 

The only thing left is to varnish to add shine.  So what do you think?

Learning to paint on wood

I bought these boxes to paint on. I’m learning to paint on wood instead of just canvas.  I’m using the Winsor and Newton water mixable oils for this process

You can click on the link to Blick Art Supplies to see all the wonderful colors they come in.   I get all my art supplies from them.

I am really enjoying this learning experience with wood

First Time Painting On Wood

Today was indeed another growing and learning experience for me as a visual artist

 I ventured to paint on wood. Now some will say what’s the big deal. I have always painted on canvas so for me this was very new. 

I used water mixable oils and folk paints. My challenge was the use of water and paint on wood. Too much water makes the paint spread when applied to wood. 

So here is my first piece. I also glued a star Crystal instead of painting it on her

 These are plaques I got from #Wal-Mart, the #FolkArtPaint came from #HobbyLobby.  I am going to allow it to sit a day before I do the varnish.
