A Jewelry Box University??? Why not?
I belong to a group of talented artists that paint jewelry boxes. There are many talented people in this group I’ve had the privilege of getting to know online. I now get the chance to meet some of them when another painting friend (I met online) and I travel to North Carolina from Missouri later this month to learn from some of the best! How crazy is that? 🤪
Not so crazy! Painting jewelry boxes is very rewarding and so much fun and so worth the trip! Sometimes painting jewelry boxes can even be more time consuming than painting furniture. The techniques and skills we will learn at Jewelry Box University will easily transfer for use when painting furniture. And when I say we paint jewelry boxes, we don’t just mean the kind that holds jewelry and plays music. We create something new out of any kind of jewelry case or any kind of box.
I will be sharing some of these techniques with my fellow artists, so thought I’d do this post so they would all be in one place:
Change the color(s) of your transparent background (or solid, too) logo!
