GlassAttic --polymer clay "encyclopedia"

(reposted as two parts for archives)

This is an Altoids tin I covered with clay (the lid anyway), then used as a tic tac toe game:





The background sheets on the left and right have simple spiral ("jellyroll") cane slices rolled into them in inverse colors.  The colors used were combos and mixes of yellow and magenta, sometimes with white to lighten, and also black and Brilliant Gold Pearl Ex. The stacked-balls playing pieces rest peg-like in clay squares with center holes cut out (like nuts from a hardware store), and the lid has a knob for helping to open it easily... playing pieces are stored inside.  I also glued a couple of pieces of black felt to the inside top and bottom with Gem Tac glue to keep the pieces from banging around when carried.
This one was a bit fiddly to make but there's a text lesson describing how I did it here if anyone's interested:

There are links to more polymer clay tic tac toe games (on Altoid tins and not... not made by me) on this page at my site as well:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/kids_beginners.htm
(...click on Games, then scroll down a few screenfuls to Tic Tac Toe...)

There are many other USES besides tic tac toe games for all kinds of polymer clay-covered tins listed in the part of this original post that's now in Discussions and Questions:

There are little black balls (squished) on the bottoms of the playing pieces which act as pegs to fit into the holes in the squares of the "board," if that's what you mean... they're visible in the photo with the playing pieces lying outside the box, but not when they're standing in place while playing.  (If that's not what you were asking, ask again!)

Definitely!   There are lots of other "games" and activities that could be done the same way too (see the link to the Games page I mentioned before, if you're interested in some other possibilities).
