My Jewelry Box Kitby Cheri Smolich
The unfinished solid wood box is beautiful. It is nicely handcrafted, smoothly sanded, and very sturdy.
The inside is lined in plush velvet and has specialized compartments for a variety of jewelry or treasures, plus five hooks on which to hang necklaces. The kit contains a generous supply of fast-drying acrylic paints with a color-mixing chart to aid in achieving additional colors if desired. There is also glue, glitter glaze, rhinestones, and stencils. The two artist paintbrushes are made of the same quality wood as the box.
Helpful suggestions are included with easy instructions. Additional ideas and stencils can be found on the manufacturer's website, which I visited. Your creative kids will probably make use of ordinary supplies that you may already have in your home. I found buttons, ribbons, tiny fabric flowers, stickers, lace, trims, and a whole box of miscellaneous tools leftover from previous craft projects. Just setting out all of these supplies was enough to spark the imagination. There are so many fun ways to finish this box, the ideas are endless. Depending on your child's personality, the end result can be fancy or quirky. Each one will no doubt be unique.
This "Paint the Wild" kit will encourage your children (boys and girls) to use their imagination and to express their creativity. I guarantee that anyone who enjoys crafts and painting will enjoy finishing this kit. I think it is a high-quality craft and worth purchasing. It is recommended for ages 6-106. I would further like to suggest that, after the project is complete, you take a picture and email it to the manufacturer's website where it can be added to their display of examples.
