The boxes im painting today are a small set of 3, i got the idea for the olde pantry label off a box i saw on the pickled pepper patch. I make my own everything usually, lol, so i opened up word and found a clipart of a sheep and made my own little "woolens" label. I'll share that with you at the end, i dont care to share!
What u need!
Paper Mache Boxes (you can find these at almost any craft store, im using a small oval set)
Craft Paint (i like folk art brand, and i use black, barn red, yellow orche, and cobalt blue today)
brushes to paint with
old piece of wax (i use the old wax i remove from my tart warmer, you could use a cheep candle)
minwax dark walnut (this is optional but it seals and makes them look prim perfect)
ok first i painted them all one base color, i like to use black as my base for primitive projects, so i painted them all black.
I wanted each of the 3 boxes a different color, i used barn red, yellow ochre, and a prim green (i couldnt find a green i liked, so i mixed colbalt blue and ochre yellow together pretty equall parts of each for a nice green).
Apply the paint to the boxes quickly, could be haphazardly, doesnt need to be perfect.
I just followed this process for each color and the end result was this.
I glued each label on and i was done, the label i made myself that im going to share is the woolens lable in the center.
Just right click on the image and save it to your computer!
Hope this helps somebody!!
