Wow Themed Trinket Boxes


I haven’t blogged in so long, I think I have forgotten how..

I can’t let go completely of the blog just yet and so since I did these,  and wanted to show them off,  and it seemed a fitting place to post them considering this was/is/limbo a Wow blog, in which I share the love of the game.

What do you get for someone, who says they don’t want anything for a present. Well to me that means – Challenge accepted!

We had a shared passion for a game,  and he had a Passion for Gnomes and Rogues that I will never understand,  and I like making stuff.  ( Hence new Lego Obsession )

So I made this as a trial run

The Art is recyled from the 2012 Wow Mini Calender that I could not throw out ( NOT MY WORK and I have searched and searched and cannot find the artist for this one , but I will keep looking because even though they didn’t make it easy by naming the artists on the calendars it should be available somewhere but it is from the WOW Trading Card game apparently will update if I find it. )

Boxes are from Bunnings  Craft Timber Piece Boyle Trinket Boxes   *

Pic was stuck down using Spray Glue, and stickers ‘artfully’ placed around in a border and then layers and layers of ‘Craft Smart Glaze paste’ because the craft shop I went to ran out of Modgepodge. ( Alliance sticker came with the 2014 large calendar)

That was my ‘lets see if this can work’ experiment and I learned a few things in making it.

and then the Present

Since the pic was taken it dried  ( some of the glaze up the top in the photo is still wet) and I few more layers added to make sure the Cogs stayed on, and to smooth the border on the top.

Art from same Wow Calendar – had to layer the border pieces to get them to sit nicely,  Its The Tani Bixtix from the Wow trading Card game Artist Ittoku Seta

and the Cogs are from a Steam Punk  Jewelery range from Janlynn

He reports he is happy with it, and it survived the shipping overseas to the US with some Tim Tams hidden inside and I’m pretty happy  with how they turned out.   I have some more boxes I will work with but they won’t be a Wow theme,  these were one offs.

* These are solid little boxes and besides needing to prime them were awesome to work with.  – an unamed craftstore in Australia also had boxes but they were plywood, and on examination when I got to the counter were already cracking so I didn’t buy theirs  and when I complained as to their quality was told ‘ they aren’t meant to last forever..’

    Great job on the box and what a way to respond to a customer.

    An article for the same subject written at the sixth or seventh grade level may fair much better inside the SERPs. Workshops maybe perceptibly good which makes sorts of actions that could possibly be fruitfully finished together with your future writings.
