My first step in using my 5" x 5" Ampersand Claybord Box Kit was staining the sides and inside of my box with Tattered Angels Color Wash Paint in Caribbean Mist and a large flat brush. Color Wash Paint brought out the natural beauty of the wood and tinted the surface at the same time. Staining is an easy way to add a nice finish to these boxes because the birch plywood on the outside of the box has already been sanded and is ready for stain.
I stained the sides and inside of the box with two coats of Caribbean Mist.
To create the lid design, I grabbed my Map Stencil from StencilGirl® Products!
The absorbency of the Claybord lid allows for color application without runs or bleeds.
And StazOn inks dry quickly and permanently.
I love the map of the world on this ceramic knob!
