Are you an artist? Do you have an artist in your life who takes commissions (painter, session-musician, sketch-artist etc)? Then this one is in your honour!
Every artist now and then gets THOSE jobs. You know, the jobs which just make you go “seriously??”. The jobs which you just KNOW are going to take hours and hours to even get to a point where you’ll feel comfortable letting them out into the public. Oh yeah; THOOOOOOSE jobs….
The old phrase is ‘you can’t polish a turd’, and this gift box is a fun homage to that phrase. It’s also a vote of confidence in that artist, showing them you believe you really CAN polish it! It’s designed in the style of the old shoe-polish tins so there’s no cushioning, but a nice brown cloth should set it off well :). The top is potted with photopolymer resin and then sanded smooth, giving it that nice metallic sheen!
(By the way, this is in no way referring to any customers I’ve had on here. The vast, vast majority of people I’ve worked with on here have been overwhelmingly nice. I wish every artist could be so lucky!)
