After a couple of weekends of Powertexing and Painting… I went on the next stage and the final stage of decorating the box itself before I add the content… I added the pigment.
This stage is simple once you get the knack but it can be a little daunting as you dry brush it on and you have very little paint on your brush and its very tempting to over do it. Bit like I did with the butterflies
You just about see from these pictures, but there are two colours of pigments painted on. Firstly there are 4 shades of burgundy… the Powertex pigments blend together very quickly and completely and their Titanium White is one of the purest whites I have used!
Now the frame is finished… I need to varnish the inside and the back and then I can add the poppy and the content.
Just to show you the difference I have made to the frame… have a look at this photo.
