Bob that is one nice box and I love the flower design it gives it a fresh spring like look.
This is done with marquetry ?

Tony – thanks for the really nice compliment. It is certainly appreciated.
Klaus – thanks for your compliment as well. No this is not marquetry. These are hand painted using oils. This box was a colabration.

Very nice! Could you comment on the finish you used and how that works over the painted dogwoods?

BB1 – thanks for the compliment. As for your question, the bare wood was sanded to 220, then stain was applied for the overall background and it was resanded. The oil painting was then completed over several days allowing time for the oils to dry. Then several coats of deft were applied to protect the painting. Easy peasy. Thanks for looking.
Julian – thanks for looking and commenting.
Wahoo – thanks for looking and you flattering comment.

Had me followed that it was marquetry as well! But then it is sometimes called painting in wood! Looks great!

MadBurg – it wasn’t my intention to fool anyone, just a different idea for a box along with a different canvas for a painting. Thanks for the view and the compliment.

Very nice Bob.
When doing your flocking do you use the glue that comes with the fibers or do you use enamel paint? I’ve been using enamel paint and am very happy with it, though it comes with fumes it’s not near as strong as the fiber glue. I buy it by the quart and it last much longer.

Charles – I am very please with your comment. Thanks.
Randy – We are still using glue on the flocking. It was all bought as a kit before I read about your technique. We are going to give it a try. Just haven’t gone to town to get the paint mixed up yet.
