Griffin box

by brae  

I've been busy with other things, but tonight I had a little time and the itch to make a mini.  :D  I went into my box of small kits and took out the griffin box from Lisa's Little Things bought at one of the local shows.

The pieces are already separated and ready for assembly.

I assembled the lower box and then brushed on Liquitex silver paint.  The instructions recommend a sponge brush and lightly sweeping across the raised areas.  I was so-so at it.  :D  I got a little silver on the inner portions.

I added a red paint wash to the recessed areas to bump up the richness of color.  After the painting, I glued the top in place.

It's a great kit and super easy to put together.  The results look very rich.

I think that your griffin box is not only a great pattern Brae, but I love the color combination that you have chosen, and from the last photo, it looks just like silver metal filigree encasing the red. Beautifully done!

Thank you so much! :>> I'm not sure the vendor has an online presence. If they do, and I get their card or their receipt as the info, I try to include it. :yes:
