I covered a little mint tin with polymer clay.   Added some polymer licorice allsorts to the top.



Added a US 5 cent piece for scale (about the size of an Australian 10 cent piece).

that looks so great! Did you use any kind of glaze or acrylic spray on the outside or did you leave it as is? Also, did you bake the mints seperately and then attach them or did you attach first and then baked the whole tin at once?

I attached the licorice allsorts to the top of the tin first then baked the whole tin.

To get the soft sheen to the turquoise polymer clay, after baking tin and allowing to cool completely,  I used wet and dry sand paper,(starting with 220 grade, getting progressively finer to up to 800 grade), and water to smooth out the finish of the clay.  Then I polished with a soft cloth.   The licorice allsorts didn't need sanding.

That is so retro '50s looking. I love it and you gave me a cool idea of something to make for my dad! He loves old things and licorice allsorts candy too!

Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

That's really cute. i like how the turquoise is soft looking vs the hard look of the candy. Is it lined?

Not lined.  I haven't done anything with the inside of the tin except wash it.
