While I was doodling out the more complex patterns on the first two crosses with the wood glue, I figured it could be fun to do something smoother. So this one has a raised inset on each of the arms and then a raised square in the middle.
It was a fun experiment and I had a lot of room to play around with adding texture using the paint colors. The edges have a mottled silver and gold and I did a bunch of small metallic dots around the square in the center.
The cross magnets are finished with Liquitex Gloss sealer on the front and matte on the back. You should be able to wipe them clean with a damp cloth, but please don’t leave let them sit out in the rain.
The crosses are roughly 3.5 inches tall and about 3 inches wide and are most likely made of birch plywood, but only ArtMinds knows for sure. The magnet on the back is a single flat strip that runs the length of the cross. It’s quite sturdy and should be able to hold up paper without issues (although it might have issues with cardstock). The magnets are reinforced with wood glue and have been painted over and well sealed, so they won’t come loose.
