The "Wizards Apprentice" Box

One last box before moving on to something else. I called this one the “Wizard’s Apprentice”.

Can you talk a bit about your process? How you did your colors? How long does it take to get to finished project?

Looks great. Was it hard to paint? :grinning:

Sure. I wanted to build something that could be an artifact from another time. The artwork is just stuff I found on the web which fit the motif I was looking for. For this project, I used Arteza Alcohol markers because of the blending possibilities. The color combinations seemed to give the effect I was looking for, but are really “just a happy accident” to quote Bob Ross. The gold accents are Testor’s enamel. The finished product was coated with oil based polyurethane. I’d say that once the parts were cut, I spent around 8 ~10 hours finishing it.

Thanks! I never really tried anything like this until I got the Glowforge. It has opened up a channel for creativity I didn’t know existed.
