Chi Omega Owl:Easy to Paint on a Box!

Here is a hand-painted owl design on a tan paper-mache oval box. The Chi Omega letters can be added or a personalized message. There is plenty of space for a personal note to be painted.

The idea is easy to duplicate. Craft stores carry paper boxes as well as wooden ones. You can paint the box what ever color you desire. Trace a design you like onto paper(in this case I drew an owl design). Transfer the design to the box by placing a sheet of graphite paper (from crafts store) under design and drawing the lines of the design with a pen with enough firmness for the design to be marked on the box. Now you are ready to paint. I use acrylic paints for almost all of my artwork because they are so easy to work with and to clean up!
