# Jewellery box from Craftslane

# White matte chalk paint from Itsy Bitsy
# Image for Image transfer-normal laser printout
# Mod Podge matte
# 2 step Crackle medium from Itsy Bitsy
# Stencil of your choice
# Chalk paints from itsy Bitsy
# Modelling paste — Mont Marte
# Oil paints
# Decoupage varnish from Itsy Bitsy
# Image transfer
# Texture paste stencilling-as per requirement of this month’s blog challenge
# Use of 2 step Crackle Medium
Step.1: First paint the whole jewellery box with Gesso. Give it 2 layers of gesso at least. After 2 layers of gesso with sponging technique paint the whole box inside and outside with white matte chalk paint.
Step.2: For Image transfer take any image print out on laser printer and apply one layer of mod podge on the entire image covering the area which you want to transfer on the box. Dry it completely. Now apply second layer of mod podge and place it upside down on the box and press with sponge nicely for 1–2 minutes so that no air bubbles are trapped inside. Leave for 8–10 hours.
Step.3: After 8–10 hours rub off the paper by rubbing slowly on paper with wet finger till image is clearly visible. Apply one more layer of mod podge to seal the image. With matching shade of chalk paint I have with a sponge dabbed the outer boundary of the image transfer.
Step.4: Now apply 2 step crackle as explained on the bottle (first base coat and then top coat after base coat has dried completely) .When dry and cracks have appeared rub oil paint (here I have mixed red, blue and white to get lilac shade) in the cracks to highlight the cracks and rub off remaining oil paint on surface with wet wipe. Work in small areas covering the whole box.
Step.5: For the sides of the box take modelling paste and mix with chalk paint of same shade as used on the box and with palette knife apply the coloured modelling paste on the box so as to cover all the sides. This is called textured stencilling.
Step.6: After dried paint the whole box inside and outside with decoupage varnish.
