Matchbox art



I started to make some matchbox art for a show in October. I hope we are still having it, I haven't heard officially yet. But I wanted to make some anyway. I paint them with gesso first, then add my design, and paint with acrylics. Then they are sprayed wtih a gloss archival spray. Perfect for little goodies and keepsakes, maybe a ring for a friend?
