The jewellery box is made of Waterproof MDF. The box is finished smooth to the touch. No coating is applied so DIY & Hobbyists can show their creativity decorating the MDF Box. You can also pour clear resin on the MDF to make beautiful designs. The clear epoxy can be purchased here. Acrylic, Chalk, Poster Colors and synthetic paints work best on MDF. Make sure to apply a clear coat of lacquer to seal your artwork.
