,,Dancing in the moonlight '' altered box

,,Dance under shimmering moonlight 
like the moon was made for you alone,
and let it shine down on your exquisite face
like the light is an extension of your soul.       -A.Bentley -

Hi my friends today I would like to show you my altered box ,,Dancing in the moonlight . Altering a wooden box is such a fun thing o do because it can be anything you want it to be.For his box, I have combined several tecniques . I also used a lots of prodcts to make up this magic ,steampunk style box.

The base was wooden box , I painted it with two coats of white gesso On the top I glued some
flowers, chipboards, tulle ,gazue  and lots of metal embellishments. .I also sprinkled some micro beads 

On the edges of this box I used modellig paste to make interesting background . I painted it with black gesso ,when it dried I started to apply inka gold : silver gold and gold.I also used  mica powders blue opal magic, gold opal magic ,blue ,deep water.

As the final step I started playing with colors .I used mists: pear violet, pastel lavender,calypso teal, pastel blue 

On the sides of this case 
I used flower stencil and modeling paste . Then I painted it with old gold paint. 

                             And few close-ups
