Jewelry Box Collection

I have always loved to draw and paint but I didn't really throw myself into it until after I had my first son.  I wanted to be a stay at home mom and at the same time be able to decorate the new home we had just purchased. I taught myself how to use power tools and began to build furniture which I would paint and sometimes sell.  What was once a hobby became a new part-time career which I feel so blessed to be able to do.
Create a trio of custom jewelry boxes using delicate stencil patterns and FolkArt Milk Paint.

Instructions

  1. Remove all hinges and clasps using a tiny screwdriver. Store hardware safely in a small bowl, one for each jewelry box.
  2. Sand each unfinished wood jewelry box with fine grit sandpaper creating a smooth surface to accept the FolkArt Milk Paint.
  3. Working one jewelry box at a time, pour a small amount of Port FolkArt Milk Paint into a foam bowl. Load the 1.25" FolkArt Milk Paint paintbrush by dipping into the milk paint. Remove excess paint by brushing along the side of the bowl.
  4. Brush Port FolkArt Milk Paint over the entire surface of one jewelry box following the natural direction of the wood grain. Allow to dry.
  5. Sand the painted surface smooth using fine grit sandpaper. Wipe to remove sanding dust, then reapply a second coat. Let dry.
  6. Repeat the same steps on the remaining jewelry boxes, painting Petticoat on one and Plymouth Rock on the other. Allow all surfaces to thoroughly dry.
  7. Embellish the jewelry boxes where desired using different design elements from the Lace design FolkArt Peel & Stick Stencil.  Using a small stencil brush loaded with Petticoat and then offloaded, carefully add stenciled embellishments on both the Port and Plymouth Rock milk painted jewelry boxes. It is important to always offload a paint loaded stencil brush creating a dry brush which will prevent excess paint use. Allow stenciled areas to dry thoroughly.
  8. Finishing – Brush a coat of FolkArt Milk Paint Finishing Oil onto all sides of each painted jewelry box. Allow the oil to penetrate through the paint and into the original unfinished surface sealing each jewelry box from the inside out. Immediately after applying Finishing Oil, wet sand each surface with fine grit sandpaper to create a velvety, smooth finish. Wipe to remove sanding dust and allow to cure before using.
  9. Complete by replacing hinges and clasps.
  • TIP: If using wood jewelry box that has been previously painted or varnished, be sure to prime the surface first using FolkArt Milk Paint Bonding Primer & Sealer prior to painting with FolkArt Milk Paint. Seal the completed project with the same Bonding Primer & Sealer.
