Mandalas are gorgeous designs found throughout Indian culture, and I have always been inspired by these intricate geometric designs. I wanted to stencil one onto a jewelry box, and when I learned that you could use dimensional puff paint on wood I knew I had to try it. The idea of adding a beautiful design with texture to a flat box was very appealing to me, and I have always loved the combination of warm metallics and dark wood. I think that the project turned out beautifully, and I can't wait to try the technique again!

    Stain the entire box using a foam brush and the walnut wood stain. I found that one coat did the trick nicely.

    Lay the shaded area face down onto the box. Place the template design on top of it and use tape to hold them both in place. With a pencil, trace the template design firmly to ensure that it penetrates to the box and leaves an imprint.
