Oh Billie they are both great, but I just LOVE that book box. It looks really good and shows how much attention you must have been paying!! A lesson to all of us, I think. Very, very well done. xxx

How do you mean Karin, on the outside of the box, I did think of using clear lacquer (sp)

Billie, buy a pot of GESSO and paint the box with it first, hun.
It's an excellent primer for this and canvas, and loads of other stuff and makes a good base for acrylic paints. It will definitely help.
