Acrylic paint

 A fast-drying synthetic paint made from acrylic resin. Acrylic is a fast-drying water-based “plastic” paint valued for its versatility and clean up with soap and water.
You may have heard about my little Royal challenge, to make your own crown. Well, I so enjoyed making my crowns that I couldn't stop at 2, so here is my third one. I attached it to a recycled ribbon tube and made a tiny Treasure Keepsake box out of it.
Foil paper, flower, distress glitter and sentiment from the January Kit from Frosted Designs

The tube was painted with Deco Arts Metallic acrylic paint, boy, is it a smooth consistency! I just love the Ranger Distress Glitter, I sprinkled it on top of the lid and look.....awesome, huh?

The crown itself was made using Helmar's Fabric Stiffner & Draping Liquid which was formed around a ( pardon me ) toilet paper tube roll. The little seed beads come from the December Kit from Frosted Designs and were hand sewn on ( thank you Jamie for the magnifying glass for Christmas, just saying! ). The lace and gold band are misc. notions from JoAnns. 

The inside of the box has a cute little saying...:) doodled with the Sakura pens and embellished with Ranger Liquid Pearls and stickles.
