This trinket box wants to give you a quest!
Or maybe it holds a reward inside. OR maybe it wants to reward you and then give you another quest! You won't know until you open it up!
I hand-painted this little box using two shades of brown acrylic paint (to simulate a wood stain while giving me better control over shading), and then added details using a high-quality gold paint and black to create shadows. The gold corners gives it that campaign-style touch like tiny metal brackets. I thought about making the question mark yellow, but I liked the gold so much I decided to stick with it instead of adding another color.

This post is a little random, but it shows how sometimes you don't need to spend extra money to by crafting supplies
I needed a way to dry my cray projects without leaving a flat imprint of the surface it was driving on. I decided that my shoving a skewer through it I could than spike it through a Styrofoam board to keep it up. But that costs money and I didn't have one on hand immediately.
Was able to makeshift a great replacement.
Fill up a paper shopping bag with something fluffy, like plastic grocery bags. Than start puncturing holes through it with the skewers and used it to prop up my sticks. :)

I made more superhero bracers! Okay, so these could also work for a bad guy.
