Have you ever seen paint effects like this and wondered how to do it?
You probably thought it required a lot of skill; I know I did!
However, it is surprisingly easy.
I met up with some of our home-schooling friends to do arts and crafts. One of the mums had bought these jewellery boxes from Yellow Moon for us to paint.
I choose to do a beach look for mine!
All I did was painted white acrylic on, and then straight away applied a light blue layer. I had mixed a dark blue with more white to get the light blue I wanted. The colours mix and form the beachy look.
The most important thing is to keep the brush strokes the same way!
I applied the paint from side to side on the front and top, and up and down on the sides.
Follow whichever way the wood grain is going; this will give you the best results.
Then you can have a beautiful box to store jewellery, or buttons like me!
