Oh my goodness! I can't believe you were able to make it that small. I'm inclined to think you have a giant Diet Coke hanging around it.

did you have to bake the whole thing? because of the polymer clay bits..
(and if so, how did you do that without catching the matchbox on fire?)

ehn. can't wrap my brain around it.
awesome job!

Only the moon is polymer clay and he was baked before he was snatched up by the tree.  Wink

so in the last shot, where you've got clay attaching the tree to the box, that's just a temporary placeholder?

Exactly -- that was my "rough draft" version of the project, just to see how things would go together. When I'm not ready to glue, I find that some of the really soft polymer clays work well to hold things in place.

I tend to use the bubble gum like stuff that you put posters on the walls with, but some times that can be to sticky.  Thanks for the poly clay tip Grin

I find the ones that are "stone" textures seem to be the softest/work the best.

I also use it when taking photos of something that doesn't normally "stand" on it's own -- works great to prop stuff up and you can mold it so that it doesn't show in the pic.
