Steampunk Textured Round Keepsake Box with Lid Mixed Media Paper Mache Hot Air Balloon



For the Steampunk Collector, this is an OOAK (original one of a kind) Textured Keepsake Box with Lid, featuring a Hot Air Balloon and Gears on its Lid. The Box was created from a Round Paper Mache Box Blank, and using Mixed Media techniques I applied layers of texture on the box's lid. Golden Paint Mediums made a thick swirled effect, while later I collaged small metal Gears and a Hot Air Balloon die-cut. Layers of acrylics in Grey, Periwinkle Blue, Ivory and White were painted on to give it an antiqued feel. The sides of the box, both inside and out, were painted in the same periwinkle shades. Specialty paper that looks like Peeling Wood was applied to the bottom of the inside of the box. 

The Keepsake Box was signed on the bottom, and then sealed with a soft sain finish to protect. It measures 5 1/2 inches in diameter, and 3 inches in height.
