Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! Ok. I’m not Irish, and I’m not going to even try to fake it. But, I did make something inspired by Ireland. I made a box using a beautiful Celtic knot from Dreamweaver Stencils. It’s called Celtic Hexagon.
The box took several hours to make, mostly due to drying time. First, I painted the box Rainforest Green. I embossed the Celtic knot with Black Embossing Paste, and once that dried, I went over the image again with with Crackle Embossing Paste. While it was still wet, I sprinkled on 3 colors of Metallic F/X powders. I used Ivy Garden, Amber Glow and Gold Dust. I let that dry, and brushed off the excess.
I used a metallic copper rub on paint to bring out a bit of the wood grain, and painted a white border on the top of the box. I added a bit of metallic rub in green and copper to that white band, so that it would mimic the Celtic Knot.
