Steampunk/Industrial Box

Happy Sunday everyone. Today I'm going to head out for a little bit with my daughter and work a bit on her goalie stuff. She has a game on Monday and wants to do some work. We will be working with a small stick since her goalie stick is still at school in the locker room. This morning we are watching the 3rd Australian V8 race of the weekend. Other than that, I plan to get some posts ready and hopefully some coloring done. I hope you all have a great rest of your weekend!

Today I'm sharing an altered box:

This is a wooden box that I have taken and altered. I've painted the box black, then I've added those metal legs. I've used some porcelain clay that I've made up and made all of the little metal plates with that. I've used Dimensional Effects Texture paste on the top of the box and also the sides of the top with two different stencils. I've added some silver paint and some some Metallic Lustre. I've used a nut for a handle that was colored using Alcohol Ink and of course I've added some metal gears to finish off that Steampunk/Industrial look. I really had a lot of fun using the clay and texture paste on this.

Jo Ann said...

Wow, what an awesome creation...Love the color! We are so blessed with your participation in our previous Challenge and would love to have you back for our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I want to share with you the inspiration of God's Word from Habakkuk 2:3-4 and it says, " For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. “See, the enemy is puffed up; his desires are not upright— but the righteous person will live by his faithfulness---." Have an awesome week!
