Dragonfly Box

I thought I would share the other box my husband made today.

Purchased box at Hobby Lobby.  Painted with Acrylic paints, the sunflower along the sides was a stencil, he put the pattern on with a pencil and then painted it in with gold and black paints.

The clay is the Premo clay.  He combined the gold and black to get that marble effect on some of the tiles.

Not sure the maker of the dragonfly stamp, but if your interested I can ask him and get back with you.  I believe he put perfect pearls inside the dragonfly to bring out the detail and then put glaze over it to keep it on the tiles.

Very tired today from helping our friends move yesterday, but we had a perfect day for the move, sunny and in the low 50's, couldn't have asked for anything better and it went pretty smootly too.

Hope you have a Great weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
