Altered box

Decided to alter this detergent box as it is the perfect size for storing atcs!
I first painted it with several rough coats of white acrylic paint inside and out then "daubed" with several coats of black acrylic using a cosmetic sponge which gives a surface that feels a bit like old leather, a bit distressed. I then embossed with a versamark pad through some plasterboard scrim, overlapping and varying the pressure to give distressed/aged effect & heat embossed
with silver.Finally I added a black button which was stamped and embossed with silver also.
