There’s a new paint in town friends. She’s pretty, shiny and extreeeeemely sheeny (is sheeny even a word?)
As a lover of all thing painty (…another made up word), I was totally on board with the Extreme Sheen collection from DecoArt. Here’s the cool thing about these metallics: there is an actual patent behind the technology that makes this paint so dang sheeny. There’s that word again. To put this paint to the test, I decided to paint the dullest surface ever and see what Extreme Sheen could do to bring it to life. I’m pretty impressed with the result. I think you will be too.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A round wood box. I picked mine up from Joann.
- DecoArt Extreme Sheen in 24K Gold
- DecoArt Matte Decou-Page
- a piece of scrapbook paper. I went with something that had some gold in it
- a paint brush
- a pencil
- scissors – not pictured
- small wood beads – not pictured
Paint the lid of the round box. You don’t need to paint the inner portion since we’ll be covering that with paper
Paint the small wood beads. I find it’s easiest to paint wood beads by threading them onto a piece of wire
Trace the bottom portion of the wood box onto wrong side of the patterned paper
Cut out the tracing, staying about 1/8″ outside the edge to ensure a snug fit into the painted lid.
Apply Decou-Page to the lid as well as the back of the paper
Once you’ve placed the paper into the lid, add another layer of Decou-Page.
Use a hot glue gun to adhere the painted beads to the bottom of the lid. This will create feet on your jewelry dish.
