Candy Box Crafts.....

Pen Crate

I've been playing with the fab pen crate and came up with this

It goes together really easily, as do all the CBC products.
I painted it with black gesso first and then set about adding texture paste, muslin, die cuts, buttons, pearls and embellishments.  Another coat of the black gesso, or paint will do, went over everything then when it was dry I gave it all a brush over with
Gilding  Wax

I seem to have developed a real liking for doing this technique and you can use up all the things in vile colours that you will never use and transform them into beautiful embellies

I've even used a flower I made with paper clay that didn't turn out so well but looked fab when painted and gilded with the wax

Let me know what you think guys
