sea box {Mixed Media Place}


Some time ago, as a part of birthday gift, I received wonderful grape tea, from my dear friend – Keren. The tea was fantastic and it had great, wooden box. So once the tea was gone (what a pity!!! it was really wonderful) I decided to alter the box. I wanted it to be a sea box.

At first I covered it with Finnabair white gesso. Than I made a mixture of Finnabair modeling paste and Mica Powder and covered the whole box creating pattern similar to waves. Once everything has dried, again I used white gesso to make the colors a little bit toned.

Finnabair glass beads and microbeads were just ideal to create sea atmosphere – they are like sand and air bubbles 🙂 The lid of the box is embellished also with Prima Mechanicals.

  1. Like the sea theme..and up-cycling too! I was looking for information on “white gesso coverage” for doing a “white magic” collage when I stumbled onto your blog.
    I took a “dark magic” collage workshop using the Art Basics products and colour bloom sprays, silk acrylics etc. But I have a question: is the heavy white gesso supposed to cover white with a couple of coats or will the colours of the mechanicals show through…or when you put on the stain does that mask any “colour” differences?

  2. Thank you Rebecca for visiting me blog. I am not sure, what are you asking for. For that particular projects I have used white heavy gesso as a primer and also as a top coat here and there. In the middle of that layers is Mica Powder mixed with Modelling Paste. Please let me know, if it doesn’t answer your question. Have a great day!
