Its actually not.  Smiley  Its the casing of an old wristwatch, flipped over so the side you see is the side that would normally sit against the wrist. I cut a small sheet of mica and glued it down between that and the matchbox itself.

I like how you used the old transistor bit for the sun. I have a few of those that I've been saving for the perfect pproject.  Mica is indeed amazing stuff! I may have to steal the watch case idea you stole from Wulf. And I keep looking at the color and texture of the background, trying to figure out how it was done. I like this!
You make awesome stuff.

Thanks!k

To be honest, I don't remember what the background is. It might have been a metallic paper that I just sponged more pain on and that's why it looks textured. Either that or I used some kind of sandy texture gel stuff and painted over it. The dots are made with metallic dimensional paint (like you'd use on fabric).
