Cloisonné Inspired Box


A few years ago at a community quiz night, I won a scented candle and aroma reeds set that came in this very sturdy cardboard box.


I’ve kept it all this time because I knew one day I’d do something decorative with it, and that day has arrived!

I love the look of Chinese cloisonné, and I figured with a little bit of paint and a gold paint pen I could come up with a cloisonné design for the box.

Firstly I painted it black.

Once it was dry I scribbled a floral design on it with a white pencil.


Then I filled in the design with acrylic paints.



Once the layers of paint were dry I outlined the flowers with the gold pen.


Pretty!
