I really love qazicat's licorice allsort tin (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=89389.0) so for my first polymer project I decided to do a variation on the theme - a chocolates tin.

I'm sure it doesn't need much explanation Cheesy

I've heard this has actually happened with some polymer candies... poor teeth!! So guard them carefully  Grin


Anyone else who'd like to try making some polymer candies (chocolates, or other), check out this page for tips:

i know this sounds slightly stupid, but i was sitting there for an entire minute wondering if that chocolate was real. then i saw the fact that it was in the polymer clay section & realized it most likely was not actual chocolate. HOWEVER. it looks like it is. after having that tin i would crave it every time i saw it.

really nice job.

when there's nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire.

Your polymer clay chocolates are splendid!  They look like the candy that is sold at the Godiva shops!

They didn't agree on much. In fact they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday. But in spite of their differences they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.

I love it! I thought the chocolates were real at first and wondered why they hadn't slid off in the opened picture!

Wow... that's just not right!  Wink

I bet if you made some round or heart-shaped tins around Valentine's or Sweetest Days, they would sell like little hot cakes.  Smiley  I love chocolate, but I'd much rather a wonderfully unique tin decorated AS chocolates to last & last... Smiley
