Koi swimming and swirling, enjoying the summer breeze in cool blue waters….
From a plain box to a fun cool gift giving, keepstake box that will bring a smile to your day.
I primed the box with gesso and blending of acrylic paint to find a cool blue background. The koi fish laying in the center of the box are stenciled using embossing paste, sealed and painted with orange acrylic and markers. I appliqued some koi fish and made most of the other fishes out of white watercolor and pouring medium to give a koi appeance. The gold embossed seaweed is made from a polymer clay mold.
