If you love Iron Orchid Design moulds and an old world finish follow me as I create it using acrylic caulking molds and paint.
Jewelry Box Makeover Using IOD Moulds and Embossing Paste
First step is to clean it well so the paint will adhere.
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.
Cut IOD acrylic moulds to size. See my post on how to create these acrylic calking moulds
Acrylic caulking moulds are easily cut to fit
Using a premium glue brushed on the back apply to the chest
Now they are all in place let them dry well before painting
All parts are dry and ready to paint
To add further texture to achieve the faux stone/plaster look I added some Saltwash to the Jolie Paint's rose quartz paint.
Next dry brush on Jolie's french grey and palace white to get a mottled look
The entire piece was sealed with Jolie clear wax then brown and white wax added for additional depth.
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.
