I have to thank jennings644 for the technique that inspired this little creation. Zombie Repellent Box.
Inside the box is a bar of soap!!!! The mums loved this.
The top and three sides of the box were covered with artists modelling paste, then used vintage photo, rusty hinge and chipped sapphire distress re inkers and scooted with water to make them run and merge. I then put a touch of gilding paste on it, love that stuff.
Here is a close up of the top
Loving this effect, want to play with other colours for Christmas.
