Halloween Treat Box
Peggy here to show you how I altered this box. All month we have been patnered up with Pan Pastels. Now that it is officially Fall I can't get my mind off Halloween! This box could be used for home decor or filled with treats for a special little ghost.
List of supplies used today :
Black oven baked clay
Various metal gears
Black Acrylic paint
Rub and Buff
I began by covering my box with pieces of clay that had been poked to resemble metal. I stamped my red rubber unmounted stamp into the clay and I cut around the balloon image. I baked my pieces in the oven with the given instructions on the package of clay.
I painted the box with black paint. After drying I glued each piece on the box with crystal lacquer.
I colored my pieces with my finger and rub & buff lightly catching the raised areas only. I used pan pastels on the edges of my balloon embellishment.
I created a piece of paper for the inside bottom of my box using a pan pastel blend using my soft tools sponge. I cut out a homemade stencil and using my black gelatos I randomly placed some bats, again using my finger for applications. I sprayed my cardstock with a sealer to ensure the pan pastels and gelatos stay in place.
I made some bats cut out of black cardstock, colored with black gelatos and edged with purple pastels.
I used some thread to simulate the bats pulling the balloon through the air.
Finally I added some metal embellishments.
