Door gifts for a wedding

Another challenge is to paint 50 little boxes as door gifts for a wedding. The time consuming part of this project is basecoating the boxes with white colour. The good part is you will get ample practice for your brushstrokes. I also get to experiment painting different types of colour combination and placement of the roses. It Really test your creativity. The idea is to have each of the 50 items uniquely handpainted with roses. One item may take you at least 1 1/2 hour to complete from the moment you brush your sealer to the last final varnishing. So you can't really do very much in one day.
