making a jewelry board with relief stenciling

jewelry board

I’ve had this idea in my head to make a panel with hooks or nails to hold all of my necklaces. They’ve been piling up, getting all tangled together and they really need some organization.

I found the wood I needed and finally got to it today. It was so fun! I need to finish it still, but wanted to share what I’ve done so far.

I used wood icing and a few of my favorite stencils to make pretty stencil relief pattern and texture.

Then a nice thick layer of gesso over the entire thing, stamping and scratching into the wet gessoed areas where there was no wood icing.

After it was completely dry, I added a layer of cobalt teal, rubbing it off in certain areas.

I sanded it lightly to bring out the relief and added some quinacridone azo gold to make it look a little more rustic and old.

I LOVE how it looks.  I’m going to add some nails or hooks and I’ll show you when it is hanging on my wall with all of my necklaces.
