Josef Albers is one of my favourite painters. I decided to customize a MDF box with a "Homage to Square" theme, as a gift to my wife.
I started with a MDF box. This one cost me $7.
My box comes with a cover and a "cross", which divides the box interior into four smaller spaces.
I downloaded a lot of Josef Albers's "Homage to Square" pictures, and edited them, using Adobe Photoshop and CorelDraw. Then, I took them to a printer bureau and printed them on ...
Start: I pasted the yellow bands around the cover.
Then, I put the "Homage to Square" big pictures on both sides of the cover.
The sides of the box were then coated with the small Albers images, making a continuous band around the chest.
I fixed then, one by one, the background the images and the inner sides ones of the box, creating a visual mosaic. One down, three to go.
Two down, two to go.
Three down! One to go!
Happy Whatever, Wifey! I love you!
