Plain photocopy paper was scrunched up adhered to the lid, and painted with Pearl Violet Lumiere "diluted" with Jo Sonja Pearl White, then accented slightly with straight Violet paint. The wings were painted with Jo Sonja Rich Gold then highlighted with a Krylon gold pen. The horse was also highlighted with a Krylon pen. The F and the 6 petal flower were accented with Pearl Ex.
 The bees were stamped on paper, and on acetate, the bodies were cut out of the paper and the wings and thorax from the acetate, and I then glued the bodies onto the wings. The acetate for the wings was coloured with Marvy Metallics. Alcohol inks could also be used.
The legs are rounded wooden dice, sanded and painted.

  The background is a wash of Pearl Violet Lumiere and Warm White Jo Sonja paints. The microscope slide was stamped using black StaZon. The gold trim around the microscope slide is gold tape available at lead lighting shops. The background in the microscope slide is acetate (same as wings on cover). Alphabet letters cast from Sculpey Ultra Light and painted with Lumiere Magenta, the heart was cast with Makin's clay and painted with Lumiere Magenta. Both the Letters and Script were highlighted using a gold Krylon pen. The script was cast with a mix of a very small portion of Red and lots of Metallic Sculpey III, I applied gold Pearl Ex to the casting and then removed from the top of the script. Sayings were stamped on vellum and adhered to the background with the 3M Vellum tape. The skeleton leaf was painted with Pearl Violet Lumiere. When I finished painting the box I removed the excess paint from the paintbrushes onto some scrap paper, that's the paper I used to stamp the Leonardo women onto. All images were stamped using Brilliance Victorian Violet.

Side view (both sides)
AM149 Lge Clover

The Clovers were cast from Delight clay, and painted with the Pearl Magenta and Pearl Violet Lumiere paints. I often dilute the paints with some Jo Sonja Pearl White when I find the colours too intense. The paint for the background is stippled on with a paintbrush, this gives it texture. Play with paint tones using the Pearl White paint for extra depth and texture.

The left side of the inside
AM111 XLge Maysie's Key
AM179 X4Lge Lock 1

On this side, the inside of the box was simply painted with one nice coat of Violet Lumiere. The casts were painted with the Magenta, and they were highlighted with Jo Sonja Pale cold paint, applied with a fairly dry brush.

The right side of the inside
AM128 XLge Greek Column
AM228 Med 6 Petals

Column was cast with Sculpey Ultralight (I love that medium!!!) and painted with Pearl Magenta Lumiere, the 6 Petals Flowers were cast from paper clay and painted with Pearl Violet. The flowers and column were highlighted with Gold Pearl Ex.
