And so, this weekend I moved on to the final stages of preparing my shadowbox… I have finished all four sides of the powertex. Just to remind you… this is what I started with:
I have painted and powertex and now this simple MDF box looks like this:
It is not quiet finished as the next stage is to add the pigment to enhance the depth – but the powertex has dried to a rock hard finish. I also need to repaint and varnish the inside and the back. And then it’s adding the inside – including the poppy!
The butterflies are made from plaster of paris and you can also buy them from Powertex directly. I have painted them with powertex, which also doubles as glue and you get a very solid covering for them.
The next stage is adding the pigment and I will share this later in the week.
