Altered brush container with Finnabair

Since my brushes collection is getting bigger and bigger, I decided to alter a container to store all my brushes.

There are four sizes of the container and I chose to alter three sides of them so I could turn them to the one I like fm time to time. As for the forth size, I am worried it would be too heavy if I alter that size too and unable to balance the piece lol

The whole piece is painted with black gesso as base.
I used Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic Paint Iris Potion and Opal Magic Waxe Blue Velvet. I love love love the different shades of purple shown in this side.
Finnabair's art stones is used mix with stone effect paste to build the texture.

The 3D effect you see in this piece is actually a empty printer ink cartridge. It has the perfect size and height to put other embellishments on the top of it . Just perfect !!  
Different types of Prima IOD moulds are used on this piece.

The second size is more in the blue tone. Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic Paint Midnight Sky and Opal Magic Wax Turquoise Satin mixed really well together and really gorgeous.

I didnt expect the colors fm Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint Metallique Midnight Sky , Crocus Fields and Antique Brilliance Wax Amethyst Magic would make such a beauty. But it did !!
When I move the piece under the light with different angles, they show a different kind of blue and purple and are absolutely fantastic.

This is the first time I really played with the new Sparks and the Metalique paints. I am in love !!
