ATC Matchbox - A Clockwork ...

 Just a simple ATC box this week, with a little faux leather and steampunk.

You will need tissue paper and some old watch or clock parts. 

Once you have glued your box together, and it is dry spread a thin coat of PVA glue on one side. Lay the tissue on the glue then give a little squidge with your fingers to wrinkle the surface. Repeat on the other sides. Set it aside to dry.

First, base coat the entire box with Burnt Umber, when dry, dry brush the surface with Primary Red.

To enhance the texture of the wrinkles lightly dry brush with gold.

I just happened to have a few cogs and an old strap. I gave them a bit of a polish and used strong glue hold them in place.
