Woodburning with DecoArt Media Bling!

Howdy Honeys!

A bit of wood burning enhancement....

for a box hubby made for a friend. 

The verse was wood burned onto a piece of cedar and then enhanced with DecoArt products. 

DecoArt Copper Kettle Metallic Lustre was used to make the wood match the inside of the box. DecoArt Media Metallic Gold Fluid Acrylic was used to add bling to the inside of the lettering, the top and the sides. And the entire piece was covered with DecoArt Media Liquid Glass for shimmer and protection. 

It was a bit tedious but my very thin Dynasty liner brush made all the difference getting the Metallic Gold into those letters!  And the shimmer of the DecoArt products made the little plaque elegant.

Thanks for letting me share! 

This is only my second project using a wood burner. I'm a bit slow but it's rather interesting!! 
Have a super fine week! Xj.

Lovely project! I usually use my wood burning tool to burn foam to make stamps so I'm fascinated to see it being used for its intended use!

What a treasure that you and your hubby worked on together. I love that! Great job with the new art form--it seems you've been doing it for ages! Steady hand and great use of the DA products to blend it into it's background. I hope you have a wonderful day! Hugs!

Yippee to wood burning! Your use of the DA products took this little plaque to the next level. What a wonderful way to highlight the words and the quote is so very true. You were very victorious with this! Gorgeous box as well. Hugz to you muffin!
