Wooden casket with rainbow
Instructions in 5 steps
Pregnancy, birth and the first years of life should be memorised in the long term. Memories can now be kept in a self-designed keepsake box.
Besides the articles listed below, you also need: Masking tape, pencil and eraser, potentially a small screwdriver to remove the metal elements.Sharpener or sharp knifeAnd this is how it works:
Step 1First tape the rim of the lid with the masking tape.
Step 2Then paint the surface with the wide flat paintbrush and the white Chalky Finish paint and let the paint dry well out.
Step 3The rainbow must be drawn in the middle of the lid, then painted with the three Chalky Finish pastel paints by means of the round paintbrush. Optionally, you can draw the rainbow on a piece of paper and then use the paper motif as a template and carefully transfer it onto the lid with a pencil.
Step 4For a fine pinkish edge, tape the casket again with the masking tape above and below the edge to be painted. Use a narrow flat paintbrush to paint it. Then let it dry out.
Step 5Finally, paint the bottom of the box with the white Chalky paint.
Tip: To avoid flecking the hinges and the lock when painting, you can unscrew them carefully and then screw them back on again.
