Faithful readers, go back and read my review of the Ultra-Pro Pro-Tower Deck Box, first, and then read this article to be more informed about what product I am talking about!
So, I actually DID get the SpartanWife to do some work on the box for me! I chose art from some comics I had doubles of, “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #8 and #9,” cut it out, and she decoupaged the art to the box. See my results below!
This is the back of the box. I chose a splash page, so that I might have a large image of He-Man holding his sword. When you open the box, you get to see the full image!
This large image is SOOO IMPRESSIVE!
I chose smaller art for the two sides.
And instead of comic art, I chose the paper branding from a MOTUC figure that I hung onto for some occasion someday, such as this! When the box is closed and you are looking at it, there is no mistake what brand of entertainment I am into!
As far as ease of project…I cut out the art that I wanted, and then she trimmed it up. The splash page cut the sword into two, but she was able to work it so that it appears seamless. She decoupaged with “Mod-Podge,” and it feels really natural, like it was branded there at the factory! The intricate texture of the box didn’t hamper the process at all, as some people seemed to be afraid of when I mentioned this project to them.
And as far as the results I got at the Magic tournament on Saturday, many people said WOW when they saw it! A few people wanted to touch it, which was cool…It was dry and all. And I had double the EDH matches, so it worked for getting attention as well!
The SpartanNerd give the SpartanWife a full 5/5 on this project! Please leave comments and let me know what you think. She would also like to hear from you, oh Hub City Geeks!
