Mix Media - Metal Effect on Wooden Box - DIY Tutorial
Mix media tutorial where you can see how to create "metal effect" on wooden box using stencils, wax pastes and structure pastes.

In this video i used special glue in spray to show you how to glue stencils to the box in order to apply structure paste. Spray prevents paint or paste to leak under the stencil.
You can also see what to do if your two step crackle doesn't crack and why. 
Remember to use only solvent based varnish on top of two step crackle as water based variety will wash dry pigment from cracks.
This box doesn't need sealing with varnish if we cover it with wax pastes. If you decide to cover your box with varnish anyway, please remember to apply wax paste on top of it as final finish not the other way around:)
