Okay, so I did a personal swap with the fantastic littlepooky and as part of the swap, I painted this nice wooden box for her.


Okay, here's the top of the box. All the other sides are painted the same turquoise with a light brown wash to dull it and make it look aged. It's got gold metal clasp and hinges and the whole thing is covered in a few coats of high gloss glaze. The inside and bottom are lined with a dark purple felt.


Here's a closeup of the A and flowers


And here's a closeup of one of the skulls

I would love to hear what you guys think!
