Another one of my little lacquered boxes, this was done for the same person who commissioned Kitsune. (She’s heavy into foxes, which is fine because I love ’em too.) Here are some shots of this playful little fox with his lantern, cut from different pieces of origami paper and glued onto a wooden jewel box.
As you can see I glued paper on the sides too. Apologies for the odd background, it’s my kitchen!
Yep, I made an Angel Rex tray. He didn’t stick around long, I can assure you, he was snapped up pretty quick…but in the time I shared with him, I loved him.
You might notice some black streaks or faint smudginess in the red of the tray. That’s because I used a block print of Rex as an experiment. Not surprisingly, the ink smudged! I would caution anyone against decoupaging a block print for this reason. If, like my little rex tray here, the piece still looks pretty nice with streaking, go for it. But I would not recommend the approach if you desperately want a crisp, clean-looking piece. Gritty pieces only!
