Another altered mooncake box...a tutorial


So the recent decluttering process unearthed a few more mooncake boxes for me to alter...like this one. :)

Here is the box before I threw black stuff on it...*LOL*

I started by adhering wrapping tissue to the whole box for base texture.

Next, I adhered chipboard on the cover, then covered the whole box with a coat of black gesso.

Then I went over the box with a silver glaze...a little shimmer and depth.

After that comes the super fun part - embellishing! I started by decorating the edges of the cover.

Then I went a little crazy with flowers, leaves and bling.

The paper flowers were white so I misted them to match the satin blooms.

It doesn't photograph every well because of the shimmery and glossy finish but it does look better than the original unaltered box, eh? *winks*

It is amazing to look at Yvonne. Recently I got my hands on some Art Anthology products[ sorbet , stone effects and some sprays] and while googling landed on some of your earlier projects! Love how you gave such a grand makeover to your box
