The Woodgrain Family Box is a splendid piece of bisque ware for storying family keepsakes, heirlooms, jewelry, and little family treasures! This rectangular box measures 5½ inches long and 3½ inches wide with a depth of 2½ inches. The texture of the box, as the name implies, is that of woodgrain, and across the top in lowercase cursive font is the word family with Cupid’s arrow (a universal symbol of love) going through it!
Sentimental value is a funny thing. An object may not be worth much intrinsically, but it’s something you’d never give up, whether that is your grandmother’s wedding ring, a beaded bracelet your youngest son made you, or a broach your mother wore with her Sunday best! These things need a place to be kept, and The Woodgrain Family Box is perfect for that!
Painting the Woodgrain Family Box can be a bit tricky with the debossed lines, the word family, and the arrow! Here is a suggestion: paint the wood line crevices with a darker brown then wipe off the surface excess. Then paint the surface level with a lighter brown to create dimension and depth in the piece! Finally, perhaps paint the word family in gold as well as the interior as a metaphor for the value of family and the contents of the box!
After the Woodgrain Family Box is finished painting, it will be dipped in a glossy or matte clear glaze and fired in a kiln! This process seals and waterproofs the piece and creates a more durable exterior!
