Tinker Bell Engagement
On the occasion of Tinker Bell “Secret of the Wings” being played in my cinema, I decided to share with you this engagement ring box I completed in March for Christopher from USA. He came to me with this idea and few reference photos of lantern and Tinker Bell from Disney movie, so it was easy to understand what he wanted, I liked the concept and agreed to make it for him.
I laser cut the whole lantern in acrylic plastic sheets and painted gold. The top section was made of stacked circles glued together filled with filler and sanded to get the cone shape. Inside this part, there is compartment for 3 button batteries and white LED which can be switched on and off by twisting the top part.This part would be easier to fabricate with Reprap 3d printer, I plan to build one in near future. On the bottom part there is quote Chris chose: “A dream is a wish your heart makes” which comes from the song from Disney’s Cinderella. It was also build as stack of acrylic circles, letters are cut in stheet of paper and sticked around it.
The figurine of Tinker Bell was sculpted in Green Stuff and painted with Valleyo acrylic paints. The process was similiar to the one described in detail in my other build Toy Story Box here. The little wings are made of transparent acetate plastic with pattern engraved with sharp knife.
I am very satisfied how this project turned. It is good looking collectible. From What I know, Chris proposed to his girlfriend in Disneyland, she said YES and liked her box. Another satisfied customer. I wish you both all the best, have a great wedding and live happily ever after!
