First I painted the jewelry box all black for a base coat. Then I used a diagram of a butterfly I googled to figure out what the wings should look like, and painted the outline on with wax resist. I added some leaves to the top and while waiting for it to dry, painted a ribbon of flowers and leaves on the bottom piece using the wax resist. After that it was just a matter of coloring it in with paints.
Such a cool and unique piece, I'm so pleased with how it turned out! It really has the stained glass feel I was going for. Yay!
Can't wait to pick up my vase next weekend and see how that turned out too :)
