Keyhole Slider Box

This was really a fun project using Finnabair's new Waxes and Stone Effect Paste. I only used one paint - believe it or not. And it was Heavy Black Gesso.

The rest of the color is all done with WAXES! Yup...waxes.


If you took a class with me a few years back that had a plain wooden slider pencil box as it's base, this is the same thing I started with.  Just an unfinished box.

I made several paper clay pieces using the amazing Iron Orchid Designs moulds. (here Moulding 1 is used)  I love Thicketworks great tip to glue them on when they're still wet. Then I used the Pumice Stone Effect Paste to fill in the edge on the sides and front edge. 

These new Stone Effect Pastes are really great to work with and dry with perfect rough edges that give a wonderful vintage quality to your project. 


This shows how the slider piece can be removed.  I added several of the Keyhole moulds to this and the back, and small wooden pieces for the legs.


 Here you see the Waxes on 2 of the Keyholes and the black gesso on pieces as they are before the wax. The background has several colors of the wax with the vibrant Mystic Turquoise-Antique Brilliance color stealing the show with it's amazing quality to shine when tilted to catch the light.


I used a few Pebbles to balance the design, but I wanted to keep it simple.


This detail shot gives you an idea of how wonderfully the waxes go on the Stone Effect Paste. Use a dry-brush technique to apply and you'll love it.


So that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. These products are now shipping from Prima. So have fun!
