A few weeks ago our eldest rat Mayonnaise had to be put to sleep. We were incredibly torn up over this as he was such a wonderful creature who taught us so much about ourselves.
Yesterday I finally was able to make his shadowbox. I basically just bought an ugly silver shadowbox from Michaels and painted it with bronze acrylic. Then I put on two coats of acrylic sealer.
The items inside are held by fabric glue...which is seriously the most hardcore glue ever made. I use it for everything!
That is pretty much it.
