I paint a box

I bought the wooden box unfinished (it's made of pine) and painted it.  It might look a bit better if I had not packed the electric sander away somewhere that I now can't find, but I am still quite pleased with it.  It is painted in burnt umber (because I have a giant pot of that) with bronze and rich gold accents, and then a coat of clear pouring acrylic to make it glossy.  It's painted as a dice, and will be a dice box (the dragon is a big number 1 spot).  I used an inkbrush to paint the dark parts of the dragon-spot, but this was a mistake - I should have sealed the box first before putting ink on it, it ran a bit, but you can't really see it now.
