I had the awesome rackycoo as a swap partner - how lucky am I?!

Here is the tin I sent her:
Alexander, the crystal ball and the skeleton hand are all layered. The crystal ball is covered with Glossy Accents.




Inside is a fortune teller's wheel with a spinning arrow and the mystic's lair.




The crystal ball is an old marble, and the table is half of a dollhouse table. Smiley

Check out what racky sent me here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=376303.0

Very cool!  I have also been working on tin cans and am wondering what kind of glue you use.  I am still searching for the *ultimate* glue and haven't quite found it yet.

Wow, you all are really kind - thank *you* for the inspiration to keep going.

DafneA - to adhere the paper to the tin, I believe I used Inkssentials Matte Accents - just a matte medium. No issues with bubbling or messing with the paper in any way. Or, it might have been Fabri-Tac, or a combination of both, especially on the inside right. The curtain fabric is sandwiched between the tin and the strip of paper that runs along the inside edge, and Matte Accents doesn't stick to fabric.

I used E-6000 for the marble crystal ball and stand... aaand regular old silicone to raise the front pieces off the surface. Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Susan
