Abhorsen Cookie Tin

I…. totally forgot to post this back when I posted the Toph Cookies tin. I won’t redo the whole tutorial, but here are some progress shots. I decided this one could be a little rough around the edges, hoping that would give it a medieval feel. Although I guess medievalists might tell me that actually people put lots of effort and painstaking care into making stuff back then. So maybe what I mean is I wanted it to look worn/old.

This happened with the gesso underneath the blue acrylic paint:

After the blue paint, I used silver paint and a stamp carved out of an eraser that my friend and I used on our Lirael/Sabriel cosplays:



And here’s the final product:

The cookies inside were bell-shaped, of varying sizes. 😀
