X Box progress

Here is the progress I have made so far on the x box case, This is a spare case I have picked up to experiment with. The case was quite fiddly to take apart, a youtube visit was in order to see how the case comes apart, that done I used the copper effect that was taught in Andy Skinners 'time worn' online workshop, very very good course, link is on my widget bar.
This pic shows the face plate, I have added some half pearls to give a riveted look, when I get round to doing the case for my x box I will use more rivets and maybe add a stamped decal or something to the top just to break the colour up. I will also paint all the parts in one go as colour matching was a pain (impossible).
Hopefully I will get my x box apart next week and get it finished.


  1. So are you going to put the guts inside and see if it works okay?

    My sons may not appreciate me having seen this!


  2. ...great effect & worth the effort, Andy's techniques are great...Mel :)
