Altered Resin Altoids Box
Everyone love those little Altoid tins, but now they are embossed with the logo and can be hard to alter. I came up with an easy solution....pour a coat of resin over the top to even it out.
|Pour resin mixture. I used the white resin.|
|After it sets up, remove the tape and begin to file edges to a slight curve.|
|Close up of thickness. Mine was a little thick but it came out just fine.|
|Filing edges with a giant fingernail file|
|Make some molds of embellishments. |
These were molds I had already made of a clock and water meter cover
|Cover top, bottom and inside with scrapbook paper.|
Coat with a layer of 3d Crystal Lacquer.
Edges are painted with enamel paint

|Cover surface with a coat of 3d Crystal Lacquer. Some metal pieces will bleed a blue tint under the 3d Crystal Lacquer so you may want to test your findings. I also used some watch parts as embellishments.|
