I used a pre-built shadowbox for this shrine. The outside is painted with acrylic, and the front frame edge is a garnet texture acrylic. I took the back out, and placed a same size canvas panel, which had been decorated with modge podge images, acrylic paint and stamps. The Chinese coin, optometrist lens, and watch pieces are glued in with super glue. A hot glue gun sufficed for the shells, statue, flowers, and crystals.
