Tadaaa! Finished a new version of my 'Tummy Hurts' treats box today and I'm so happy with how it turned out! The kitty took me forever to paint, not just the coat but specially his expression. You know; you can create a beautifully sculpted body and do your very best on the paint work but if the eyes aren't right it won't work. Finesse is always in the little details.
I used the Hindeloopen folk art painting technique on the
top (very elaborate) but kept the box itself quite plain, I think it's a
good balance. Only a coat of varnish is needed to finish it off (but
that makes photography hard to I waited till the very end). Another
sweet box done, lots of work but all worth it!
