- Bristle brush
- Acrylic paint in orange, gray, and white
- Wooden box
- Thin paintbrush
- Clear-drying glue
- Shells (for the knobs)
- Abalone chips (for the mosaic boxes)
Using bristle brush, apply colored paint to box, inside and out. Let dry.
Paint over with 1 coat white paint for a chalky effect. Let dry.
For a lid knob, use thin paintbrush to apply glue to a shell; press onto lid, and let dry.
For the abalone mosaic, sort through chips to decide on a color palette. Working in small sections, apply glue with thin paintbrush, and press chips into place, mosaic-style.
