Voyage Beneath the Waves... Altered Trinket Box

Hi everyone! It's Lyn here again from LynzCraftz – join me on a Cre8time journey beneath the waves with this super fun project. My "Voyage Beneath the Waves" trinket box started out as an old aquarium embellishment that had ceased to function.

How To

I molded the underwater explorer with Amazing Mold Putty and then filled with Amazing Casting Resin and set aside to cure. CLICK HERE to view how to create a mold with Amazing Mold Putty, and CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation for the quick and easy-to-use Amazing Casting Resin.

After de-molding, I painted him with acrylic paints. He turned out nice!

Anyway... I took a small wooden hinged box (from the craft store) and began to set the scene. I painted the box blue and added some stenciling with texture paste in the form of bubbles.

Then the box got a few more layers of acrylic paint in some underwater colors. I finished off the box with hand sculpted seaweed (using Super Sculpey), some pearls, rhinestones, and sand mixed with an acrylic matte medium.
