|Newspaper Tube Box
I made the painting on fabric this box is decorated with a long time ago. It is painted with the same paints as the paintings with embroidery. And finally, I found how I can use this painting.
I have woven one more box from newspaper tubes. This one is a bit neater but there is still room for improvement. I painted it a cream shade. I didn’t dare paint it the final colour right away. It’s very light, I was afraid you would see through it. So first I used a layer of white acrylic.
I had a bucket of acrylic paint used in wall painting. I had suspected it will be different from the acrylic paints used in painting but hadn’t expected the difference to be so drastic. But I did it!
I decided not to cover the painting in varnish.
Here are some pictures before and after painting.
