Faberge Box

The Metallic Color Lacquer made me think of Faberge Eggs for Easter.  Since a few of the DT ladies did such amazing Easter Eggs witht he Color Lacquer I decided to make a Feaux Faberge Box, and Easter Pendant.  Here's what I used.

Metallic Color Lacquer
3D Crystal Lacquer
Jewelry Finding
Altoid Smalls Tin
Easter Images from Tim Holtz Seasonal Paper Stash

For the Pendant, I trimmed a Vertical Easter image to the size of the finding, glued it in place with a small dot of Clear Crystal Lacquer, and filled the top of the image, inside the Jewelry Finding with Clear Crystal Lacquer and set it aside to dry.

For the Box, I painted an Altoid Tin with blue paint. I centered my Horizontal Easter Image and adhered it with Clear Crystal Lacquer.  I framed the image with the Gold Metallic Color Lacquer, and created my Fabrage design.  I let that dry and then filled in the blue spaces with some Blue Color Lacquer to give it a more enamel look, like fabrage has.  I added metallic details on the image itself, then filled the whole image in with Clear Crystal Lacquer.

I set it to dry over night and Voila!!

I think this could make a lovely Easter Hostess Gift.  I love the way it turned out and just working on it I got a lot of fun ideas of ways to make faberge designs with Metallic Color Lacquer.  For more great ideas check out my blog and the Sakura Craft Design Team Blog!

Have a Happy Easter!!
