so i want to do something similar to this. i just took advantage of that crazy sculpey sale at michaels and bought a ton so i finally get to give this polymer clay thing a whirl. anyway, how do you attach it to the tin? do you sculpt it around the tin, take off and bake, then glue on?

starlawill, one thing to be aware of when "covering" things with a layer of polymer clay is that Sculpey isn't the best brand to use... it's weak and easily breakable in thin or projecting areas, and with the covering technique, every area is thin  Shocked (Sculpey's "strong" though when it's formed as inherently strong shapes like round balls, etc.). 
If you do use Sculpey to cover your tin,  you'll want to treat the tin carefully after baking so that it won't chip or break... iow, no stress. 
You could also mix a stronger brand of polymer clay into your Sculpey (the more you mix in, the stronger the result... stronger clays would be any but Sculpey...so Fimo, Premo, Kato, Cernit)

(I'm sure qazicat will tell you how she covered her tins... there are various ways to do it though, so if you want to check out even more ways, look on this page at my site:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/covering.htm
...click on "Altoid and other Tins/Boxes" under the Metal subcategory...)


Let us see what you do!

cut slices of polymer cane, press onto tin, cut away excess, press slightly with finger to mould joins, bake tin, when cool sand with 400 grade wet and dry sand paper with water, then sand with 800 grade wet and dry with water, polish with soft cloth.
