This is Nithiya from the Itsy Bitsy Design Team. Today I will show you how I made a Lippan themed MDF boxes with Little Birdie archival multi-surface paints, mixed media paste and mirror. Archival multi-surface paints save your time as it doesn’t require primer or varnish. One can directly start painting without priming and finish without varnishing.
Step 1: I took two MDF boxes (rectangular and square) and removed the hinges and latches for a neat finish.
Step 2: I painted them with archival multi-surface paints Lime Tango, Iris Bloom, Ivy Garden, Black Pearl, Apricot Butter and Tangy Tomato as shown in the picture. Multi-surface paints save your time as it can be used directly without primer and gives a rich finish on wood.
Step 3: I drew an elephant and a peacock shadow on the lid of the boxes as shown.
Step 5: I started by drawing outlines for the elephant and the peacock.
Step 6: Then I filled them with designs suitable for embossing mirrors as shown in the picture.
Step 9: I made some designs on the outer walls of the box as shown in the picture with modelling paste.
Step 10: I used Fevicryl 3D outliners and drew some designs on the inner surfaces of the box as shown.
Step 11: I fixed the latches and hinges as multi-surface paints didn’t require a coat of varnish. Below are some pictures of the finished project.
See you all with another project soon!
