Another cedar cigar box with a sliding top. After a base layer of white clay, I added a second layer of textured sheets which I cut into strips varying and rotating their application. Obviously the strips also create more interest as well.
When done, I glazed with raw sienna, then burnt umber. While I was not striving for a faux finish per se, the end result has the look and feel of bone or old ivory.
After that I added a natural agate, which is really quite pretty, striated in shades of cream through umber & black and which will show up better in future photographs.
