Aww, thank you all for your kind words--I'm a novice at this tin-covering thing and I think I'm addicted.
groschveux, the glaze I used is actually just an air-drying Sculpey-brand "glaze" specially made for polymer clay. I think that basically I got suckered into buying a very small bottle of very clear rubber cement--but it does the trick!

Synne, that is an OUTSTANDING tin!!.... LOLOLOL... and very clever  Grin 

As for the "rubber cement in a bottle," love your characterization! ... that stuff really is gloppy  Shocked.     If you want thinner clear finishes for polymer, you might want to switch from the Sculpey glaze, which is by far the thickest of them all, to the Fimo brand (their "mineral" or alcohol-based version actually works the best) if you don't do much clay and have the bucks... or you can switch to Varathane or Future which are both cheap and go much farther.  There are other finish possibilities for gloss as well, but those are the most frequently used in the polymer community.
 
 If you want to check out more about all the clear finishes that can be used on polymer clay, take a look on this page:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/finishes.htm


(And groschveux, you can actually apply most of the finishes we use with clay before or after baking... though don't think before would work well for the Sculpey one.   Most of them time, however, finishes are applied after the clay is baked.  Layers can also be built up if you want really glossy look, or items can even be dipped.  Future will give a nice sheen if applied while the clay is still warm from the oven, but if applied when cool it will be shiner... it can also be built up in layers to a high gloss.  More info on all that on those things are on page I linked to above, if you're interested.)

I got mine!!  Gingerquilts really outdid herself (and me, I fear... could you just send that package back and I'll send something else?) with this tiny thing!

It's a fold-away knit kit!!  

It's tri-fold, so I'll walk you through it...


One


Two


Three


And the back!

In the little pocket in picture #2, there are point protectors.  In pic #3, you see a stitch holder on the left, hand-made stitch markers in the middle and a two-page needle "book" on the right.  On the back, you get a second shot of the pocket with the point protectors, and the other pocket holds a tiny pair of fold-up scissors attached with a ribbon.  And here's a closeup of the stitch markers:


I love it!  It was promptly tucked away (after the photo shoot) into my knitting bag, ready for use.  It's beautifully done.  Gingerquilts, honey, you should sell these puppies!  Beautifully done!  (Did I say that already?)  I hope my (I now realize) meager offering tickles you as much as this tickles me!
