This large custom "Krissi-fied" trinket box is painted in my signature style, featuring layers of images and intense color with a visual depth. My Washington DC based customer requested a cherry tree in blossom against a deep sky blue background. External measurements of box are approximately 8½x5¼x3½".
The central image of a tree is burned into wood using a professional (Razertip) pyrography tool, and layers of pencil shading, paint and glazes are added for visual depth. The sky blue background has faint images of handwriting scattered across it, and the 2-tone cherry blossoms are each hand painted over a layer of acrylic gel medium for a 3D effect.
The bottom and interior painted deep blue (flocked interior available) and the box is finished with non-skid rubber feet and a brass hasp and hinges.
The exterior is varnished with a professional grade mineral spirit acrylic hard varnish that provides a lower tack surface which is much less susceptible to sticking due to humidity, and much more mar resistant than the standard acrylic varnishes.
