An altered chocolate box challenge with a steampunk theme.

This steampunk-themed box began life as a Maltesers chocolate box. It was altered in several easy steps.

Step one: Cover the lid in glue and stick on kitchen foil. Cover the rest of the box in paper that has a woodgrain texture.

Step two: Glue on cog shapes, clock shapes, metal foil.

Step three: Paint a layer of gesso over the top of the lid.

Step four: Add layers of blue, gold and dark brown acrylic paint.
