Inspired by the "Skating Tin" http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=2071.0

I made this as part of the Altoid Tin Swap, but thought I would share here, as well.  The surfer & jet skiier have magnets on their bottoms, so when you move the magnets on the bottom of the tin... they move around the water!

That's awesome. My boyfriend is a surfer and I would love to make him something like that. What do you use for the sand and water?

The sand, people, umbrella, and castle are all made from Sculpey clay.  I formed the beach & baked the clay right in the tin.  The little people I baked in an oven safe glass dish.

The water is just a clear glaze... the type that would seal decoupage, paper mache.. mine is made Krylon, but any old glaze from a craft department would work.  I added a tinsy bit of blue food coloring to it... (very little!)

You are welcome!  It's really easy.. Wink 

Oh...clean your tin with soap & water and don't touch the area where you want the clay to be, oils on our skin dampened the "stickability" of clay to metal.

Wow, thanks!  I did 4 different tins for the swap, each one totally different from the next.. but they were all really fun. 

The fishy... I have to admit... I see the ones at the craft stores, the little ones that cost $3-4 for a single sticker made of paper & other elements... then I try to recreate them on my own.  They usually don't look much the same, but they are fun inspiration & way cheaper for me to put together materials I have at home... Wink
