Jon; Nice job!
Interesting choice of media, the watercolour pencils. How did you seal the finished image? Wouldn't waterborne urethane be a problem with colour bleed? (Rattle-can clear lacquer?)

I woodburned it, colored with watercolor pencils.
Idealistic art piece it truly shows that concepts is from the heart. She will love it for sure.

When something is fueled by love, only great outcome can come out of it. One great box.

Thanks for the lovin' folks~~Sorry I havent answered...I am new to the forum, and it just 'clicked' that there is a page two. So, I didnt see any of these.

DaninVan~ I have done a couple of different ways when it comes to sealing. For this, at first I put oil on it. (Tung if I remember right)~ After that, then I seal with spray lacquer..
But, I have done other projects where I used the Watercolor Pencils, and then put urethane directly on top~~and to my surprise, it didnt 'run' or bleed.

Was a very nice box with wood-burning, I like it.

Your box is really pretty with those colors and great wood burning design. Love the saying and I'm sure she will treasure it forever. Great work!

Nice job.

Program at the VA, eh? Maybe I'll have to check in there once in awhile.
