ATB IV- robot!

OK I may have gone a bit mad with ATBs but I wanted to experiment a bit.  Dad had two offcuts of wood from DIY that I pinched.  This is the first one.  The wood was sanded, coated in gesso and then white and navy acrylic (in that order).  I sanded back some of the blue paint before stamping in Staz On..  Next were some random dots and splodges of gloss varnish to act as a kind of resist before a layer of silver paint, wiped back.
I drilled some shallow holes and screwed in the screws before adding a bit of washi tape decoration and inking the edges in black.  The buttons were glued on or attached with wire.
