Lily of the valley box

A commission to make a jewelry-box with Lily of the Valley decoration. It is a big, pretty heavy box and I hope I did good work on it (because it’s already in the post and slowly approaching its destiny).


Used:
Big wooden jewelry box with two trays
Lily of the Valley napkin
Amsterdam acrylic paints
Stamperia colla per decoupage
Stamperia Vernice protettiva lucida
Koh-i-noor acrylic varnish

Flower bowl (FIMO)

This bowl was made by sticking tiny slices of FIMO millefiori canes on a metal bowl. It was baked and then removed from the bowl, giving it a nice, shiny inner surface.


Under-the-glass mat (FIMO millefiori)

This is a polymer clay (FIMO) mat, to be put under your glass to protect the table. Additionally, when backlit with a lamp, it makes nice visual effect, as it is made of semi-transparent FIMO.

It is made using the millefiori technique, which is a descendant of the glass millefiori, used for many centuries with glass (most fameous – Venetian glass).


Pink polymer clay (FIMO) covered glass bowl

Big, round glass bowl covered with pink and blue millefiori canes slices.
Most probably will be used as part of a lamp.
