  2. Pour the four colors into a large cup, alternating and layering colors a little bit at a time. Do not mix. Set the painted wooden box inside an aluminum foil pan upside down and pour the large paint cup over it. Allow to dry.

  3. Glue (or drill and screw) a decorative handle to each side of the box. Glue the wooden beads as legs to the tray.

  4. Using cotton swabs, add E6000 Glue to the darkest loops of Peacock Teal on the sides of the tray. (Work on one area at a time so the glue doesn't dry.) Add beads over the glue.
