But any old stuff can easily give a second life! If your jewelry and jewelry are stored in many different boxes, then your grandmother's jewelry box can become the center of unity for the dear ones. Of course, after a thorough rework of its external and internal content. A little patience and time, minimum costs and maximum pleasure will be provided! Materials for work: 1. Wooden casket - 1 piece, 2. Beads - in number along the perimeter of the bottom and the lid of the inside of the box; 3. Velvet paper - 2 sheets; 4. Lacquer Crackle - 1 jar, 5. Paper print color - to cover the side and top of the box; 6. Glue PVA - 1 pencil; 7.Solvent, emery paper, brush, scissors, paints, skewer for applying point painting, knife for cutting paper, eyeshadow in print color, spatula from plasticine, glue “liquid nails”. Stages of work: The first stage: we remove the former beauty from the surface. To facilitate the removal of the painted picture, remove the top lacquer fixing layer with a solvent. We moisten a cotton swab with any solvent and carefully wipe the entire casket with it.

The fourth stage: simulate a dot list. On unprinted parts of the box with a spatula from plasticine we apply "Golden mesh".To do this, just touch the surface of the "golden" paint and press the spatula to the box, putting curved lines first in one direction, then in another. Setochka in places turns out to be crimson, but the decoupage varnish disguises this defect. box of different decor techniques

Dry each layer of varnish thoroughly.There should be at least 2 layers.
