I've had this Tonic MDF a little while and I've just got around to decorating it.
I assembled the unit together, using the Tonic glue which came in the kit. It's held it together nice and sturdy.
I then painted the whole unit with Tonic Nuvo Acrylic paint in Ivory. Although the colour is called Ivory, it's actually quite a rich cream, almost custard colour. I actually paint in fairly thin coats and keep building on them. The paint is a good quality, quite thick and gives good coverage. I've only used about half a pot on the whole unit. Only the base wasn't painted.
The edges of the papers and the backing cards were coloured gold with Pinflairs Buff-it. It gives an excellent coverage and blends well with the Ivory paint.
I used Crafters Companion A3 Springtime double sided card. It's 300 gsm and provides an excellent decorative addition in keeping with the design and theme of the unit, that I have chosen.
I am really pleased with the finished piece, hope you like it too. I may yet put brass handles on it but just can't yet decide.
Thanks for dropping by - happy crafting!
