First step is to clean it well so the paint will adhere.
Jewelry Box Makeover Using IOD Moulds and Embossing Paste
If you love Iron Orchid Design moulds and an old world finish follow me as I create it using acrylic caulking molds and paint.
Find a chest
Emboss a stencil on top
To add dimension and texture to the top, embossing paste was applied over a tin tile stencil using an offset pallet knife.
Lift the stencil to reveal the raised design. Let dry well.
Add IOD acrylic moulds
Cut IOD acrylic moulds to size. See my post on how to create these acrylic calking moulds
Cut them to fit
Acrylic caulking moulds are easily cut to fit
Glue moulds on
Using a premium glue brushed on the back apply to the chest
Once in place let dry
Now they are all in place let them dry well before painting
Ready to Paint
All parts are dry and ready to paint
Paint adding salt wash to the mix
To add further texture to achieve the faux stone/plaster look I added some Saltwash to the Jolie Paint's rose quartz paint.
Layer on other colors
Next dry brush on Jolie's french grey and palace white to get a mottled look
Add dark waxes
The entire piece was sealed with Jolie clear wax then brown and white wax added for additional depth.
Add some sparkle
Using my finger and Jolie's gilding wax hit the highest points to add some sparkle
Here is the top view all complete.A detailed tutorial is linked with videos and loads more details linked at the end of this post.
It really looks and feels like faux stone
The aged look and colors are the perfect old world finish.
