Winner! Metallic Magic Jewelry Box

By Melissa Flippin, Owner/Artist at Flippotential Custom Finishes in Wheelock, TX.

Winning Category

The sides of the box were first covered with gold, turquoise and copper gold-leafs. I then painted the gold leafs with copper, metal-reactive paint, leaving sections of the gold leafs exposed. I sprayed the surface with blue and green patina sprays, sprinkled some some iron paint and then sprayed with Rust activator. 

The remainder of the box was painted with General Finishes Patina Green milk paint. I put additional turquoise gold-leaf on a few spots over the milk paint. I applied gold gold-leaf to the trim areas of the doors and drawers. 

The door inserts were covered with three coats of copper goldleaf, General Finishes HP topcoat, then stenciled with General Finishes Burnished Pearl Effects and Patina Green milk paint. I sealed the entire piece with General Finishes Topcoat.
