Mixed-Media Sewing Box

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here with my newest project using an assortment of Makin's Clay® products.

Makin's Clay® - White
Imagine Craft's Ink - VersaFine Clair Nocturne
​ Black Gesso
​ Molding Paste
​ Prima Molds
​ Prima Marketing Metallique Paints
​ The Crafter's Workshop Stencil
​ Whisker Graphics Twine


​ I started by painting a wood box with black gesso.

Next, I used molding paste with a brick stencil randomly around the box.

Once dry, I painted the box with Prima paints, spritzing with water so the colors would run.

Using the Michelangelo stamp from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps, I inked with black ink then randomly stamped it about the box.

Wings and locks were created from white Makin's Clay® using Prima molds.

To smooth out the clay pieces, I used the clay roller over the molded pieces, then used the clay tool to cut away the excess clay.

I painted assorted chipboard elements, the clay wings and the clay lock with Prima Metallique paints.

Assemble the chipboard pieces on the box, wrapping the spools with Whisker Graphics Twine.  Adhere the scissors across the top of the spools and glue everything in place.  Place the wings under the dress form, adding a button on top.

​To finish, I added a lock to the side of the box.

​The box is a perfect size to store an assortment of sewing supplies.

Thanks for stopping by.
