ENCHANTED BOOK (BOX) by MassoGeppetto ENCHANTED BOOK (BOX) by MassoGeppetto
A book-shaped box made ​​of paulownia wood, with a celtic carving on cover and spine. The box was colored with a green mordant , and was then finished with a slight phosphorescent paint and a protective varnish, so as to give a slight phosphorescence of a few seconds when you turn off the light :-)
Now available on Etsy! www.etsy.com/it/listing/165726…

Una scatola a forma di libro fatta in legno di Paulonia, con un intaglio celtico sulla copertina e sul dorso. La scatola è stata colorata con un mordente verde all'alcool, ed è poi stata finita con una vernice leggera fosforescente e una vernice protettiva, in modo da dare una leggera fosforescenza di pochi secondi quando si spegne la luce :-)
Ora disponibile su Etsy! www.etsy.com/it/listing/165726…

Great work, however in my oppinion the box looked better when it wasn't colored. The carvings 'disappear' a little I think, although the phosphorescence sounds cool. Perhaps a lighter colour would have kept the carvings more visible?
Still though, a cool piece of work!

Many thanks for the comment! Maybe for the next box I will color the carving with another type of mordant!

So it only shines for a few seconds in the dark? That's awesome! I think that's really cool that it doesn't just stay the whole time.
