This was a tricky one but worth the effort!  I made this diorama in an empty tin from a palm wax candle and now I want to make and hang a cluster of them in various sizes, lids too.  This one is 3 inches wide.

 



I used a glue gun to attatch half of a paperclip for a hanger on the back.


I painted the inside black, glued a blue sky cloud paper to the back and varnished the inside.  The hand is from a vintage magazine, glued at half depth.  I put it on cardstock and varnished it.  The stars, I wish they showed up better, are various sizes of metalic confetti glued onto fishing line from the bead store and at the other end are little clear/pink seed beads glued to the side of the tin.  This took paitence and tweezers but I'm happy with the results!

That is awesome!

So, you just glued the hand to the side of the tin? There's nothing propping it up on the "back?"

Wow! I really, really like it! Brava.

It looks like the hand is floating in space. Love the effect! I'd like to see more of these if you make them.

Thanks guy's!  The best part of the challenges is looking at everyday objects with new eyes. 
   I cut the wrist in a curve to match the tin, tacky glued a thin painted black peice of card stock to that, letting it dry against my finger to keep it's shape and then used black glue gun glue to stick that to the side.  Some of the stars went in before the hand, some after.  Working on a small scale like that is a new experience.

If practice makes perfect, but nobody's perfect, why practice?
