Painting on ANYTHING I Find in a Mystery Box #2Jun 10, 2021
a portion of this video is sponsored by adobe premiere pro Hello, it's me today. I'm really excited because I'm doing, I guess, the second part of a video I made recently. Basically, I bought a bunch of
mysteryboxes because I like opening
mysteryboxes. boxes and I wanted an excuse to do it on camera so I decided I'm going to get a bunch of mystery boxes, spend half the video opening them and goo goo gaga over them, it's a mystery, it's a fun surprise and then the other middle of the video I'm actually going to do something creative with one of the items in the mystery box, so the whole time I'm opening them I'm thinking what thing I can use, I'll paint it, I'll personalize it. decorate it i have to do something creative with one of these items and i have no idea what they are so it's fun and interesting last time i did this i opened the three smaller boxes i bought today i'm opening the big one yes it's in two separate packages , but technically it was a mystery box.
Ah, I'm a little embarrassed to admit how much I spent on this box. I spent 128 dollars. Wow, this is double the price of the most expensive box I opened last time. The last ones I opened had a cute theme, one was even customizable. This one is completely generic, it has no theme, it's just a big mystery. I'm a little nervous, especially since I spent more on this one. I got all of these boxes from etsy. The description on this one says big box guaranteed real value and fun. One in seven will receive a rare golden box.
Well, I don't know what that means, but I guess it's not me. used trash, hope it's not trash, you will get a real mystery box, not a mystery bag. I didn't know there was discrimination against mystery bags. I'm really afraid that they are a bunch of cheap electronics. I'm going to hate, okay, box number one, come on, oh, oh, my God, the muscle opened the box now, let's see, oh, my God, what is this? It looks like a cheap electronic device which I hate, it looks like you put it together and then there are the cables, technology is not exactly my thing this looks like something Jordan would like.
My best guess is that it's some kind of security camera. I don't see many artistic possibilities with this first element. It's okay, it's okay. What is this? A battery. A big fat battery. Oh boy. Is this for the camera? No, no, it doesn't fit there. It's a big, fat battery. Wow, yes, this is what I always wanted. I didn't want a battery. Let's keep going. Oh, what can I connect to this? What is this? I don't even know what it is, but it's little strips of decorative paper that you can use to make these little paper stars that I've never actually made before.
They are so cute, I doubt I would actually take the time to make them. the stars, but there could be another use for them. I like the patterns and colors, so I can't complain about that. What else? Wireless video doorbell. Someone rings the doorbell and you can see them on video. Is good for. cool security, we already have it, I can't use it for art either, so it's okay, more technology is cool, what's next? Oh my god, why is he in tech? What is this? It's a cable. I only want nice things. Indoor digital television antenna.
Opie is that you Opie, are you here? Because? Hello, my little friend, I'm opening things. Okay, great, what does it do? It's a television antenna, something, something, let's see what's next. Okay, hell, this is it. It's a wig. I'm very good with wigs. It's a terrible wig. to me because it just looks like my own hair, a little scared because it doesn't look new and that doesn't make me extremely comfortable, okay, we haven't come across any potential art projects, um, there's hair everywhere. I am worried right now, what is this HP Premium Plus Photo Paper? Actually, we just bought a photo printer.
Okay, great, they definitely didn't go out and buy this. It looks like one of those things you've had in your basement for about 20 years. oh uh, what is this? Okay, I don't know what that is, oh, that's what it is, what else? Okay, it's a kids backpack. Oh oh God, okay, yeah, it's a small bag. This is for a baby. I can use this? No, I'm not. a baby i don't know what to do with it it's there oh boy what is this adhesive tablet stand? looks like a toilet seat ugh maybe someone would be interested in using this I don't think they would oh my goodness the box is empty no, so far it's been some tech or something really random that just got pulled out of someone's garage no one came out to buy this this came from someone's basement the same with that wig I don't need to love everything I will be happy if I love something, let's hope this box is a little more to my liking.

I've been using premiere pro to edit my videos for like six years at this point, this is how I do this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this.

Oh no, they are HDMI to CVBS cables. This is the trash I go through the house and
findand wonder what it is used for. Can we get rid of it? Another thick battery. What is this air mouse? it's so dusty and dirty, wow this has been used and it's dirty, oh we're in trouble, universal bike mount, I'm not a serious cyclist or
anythingbut I have a bike, it's quite inconvenient to carry your phone around. you when you ride a bike I don't hate this I could use this actually what is this easy to lift mobile straps whoa yeah oh my gosh we're getting to the bottom of it now Chromecast which is definitely used I can't tell you what it does I don't know what it does a father with too many devices decided to put together a mystery box and then we have a bunch of little things, some broken post-its, a very clunky USB drive, a little green dragon, a seven-day morning. detox for weight loss what are you trying to say? clay bar for cleaning cars thank you for giving me the gift of housework this is the last thing oh what's more I really feel like throwing up looking at this it's just usb something I don't do What have I done?
What have I done? This is the mystery box of life right, you get the ups and the downs, you get the ones that are so perfect for you and then you get the ones that are so far from
anythingyou ever wanted. a real low, especially considering the amount of money I spent on this, what the hell have I done? This was exactly what I was afraid of getting all the technology and gadgets that are so far from what I'm interested in and that's most of what this was, I was expecting more fun items, a clay bar to clean your car.
I mean, I feel like if you want practical items, you're going to buy practical items, so I feel like a mystery box should be more about fun stuff, anything. That was fun, it was strictly for kids, so now I have a real problem on my hands because what can I wear here? What I am going to do? Paint on the lifting straps. I have to choose something after thinking about it and reviewing everything I think about. I really only have one option the strips of paper I feel like I can incorporate this into something I just spent 128 on strips of paper it's a wonderful feeling I don't want to be ungrateful and I realize it's hard to put together a generic mystery box that every human being in the planet is going to enjoy it, but I would have liked a little more variety, I think it was too tech-heavy and too masculine in a way, this wasn't my box, that being said, I'm going to stop complaining now because I have some ideas that do, let's get into it, so this is what this video came to.
It's time for me to play with strips of paper, of course, I realized they are meant to be used for making. those little paper stars but at least I want to try to do something a little more creative although don't get your hopes up please because disappointment is a bad feeling now that I have eliminated all reason for you to continue watching this video, let's continue I'm going to go to my drawer items that can be painted to look for something really good, here's something that will work, so this is a very exciting ceramic square plate.
I originally bought it to try to submerge it in water, do you know when it was a What I did that one time but I didn't end up using it at the time and here it is okay, we have to use these strips of paper. The best solution I could come up with was to just cut all these little strips. into little squares and then just put them together on my little palette here and then I'll continue doing that with the remaining colors. I think white is actually the prettiest, but since I don't have any restrictions when it comes to choosing a color.
I'm going to use literally every single color in the yellow, okay, cool, yeah, and now we move on to the blue, isn't it fun guys, isn't it so fun and interesting? It is something fascinating to see. It's like a machine or the endless haircut how good and finally this is the home stretch this is the last color that I have to cut here is my complete collection of paper cutouts that I have created this is what true talent and talent looks like creativity So now I'm receiving a mod podge that hasn't been used for a while, so there was a lovely little surprise and very aesthetic.
Also, it was very separated, so I had to stir it vigorously and here we get into the process, starting by applying a thick layer of mod podge to one section of the plate at a time and then painstakingly gluing square by square onto the plate, basically decoupage, that's what we're doing here. In fact, it's not a technique or style I use often. I don't remember the last time I did this, but I think it was a fun, easy, mindless process and it's moderately satisfying to watch. I definitely would have preferred to have an item I could have painted on. this was me trying to make the best of my situation if you're wondering about the fate of all the items I got in this box I ended up giving most of them away if you watched my latest mystery box unboxing video I got a That time too a couple of things I didn't know what to do with.
In fact, I ended up sending that plate of pickles to one of my viewers. She messaged me and said that she really loved it and that she was a collector of pickle-themed items. There was a happy ending. for that plate there is no harm or lack or waste except my money, of course that will not be returned, but that's okay, it's all for the cause for your entertainment, we have the top part full, I'm going to fill the bottom part to the brim . Because you can still see the sides a bit when this is up as they glow before I really got very far into this process, my plan was to just use this technique for the background and then paint something on top of it.
I decoupage to personalize it a little more, but the further I went, the more I realized that this looked incredibly busy, as I was having a hard time imagining any type of design that would look good with this busy. of a pattern in the background, so basically my dreams were falling apart here. It may have been a better choice to stick with one of the paper colors instead of using them all, but of course I didn't do that. It will be a big help in learning to see the future and this is the last finished piece so by putting a nice thick layer of protection over everything we don't want any nasty edges appearing later on and here is the end result for me.
It looks like a horrible 4th of July decor plate, but I really felt like trying to add anything extra to this would only make things worse. He's so busy that it's even hard to
findthings that look cute on him, as if that's too much. It looks nice when I put nail polish on it, but yeah, you know, I'm not going to lie, I'm not too excited about this one, it didn't fuel my creativity, maybe I'll give it away too. I don't know, I don't really want it, I know we had a less than ideal experience this time.
I hope you enjoyed the video anyway, thanks for watching and I'll see you next week, bye.
