Within You, Without You


This is a hinged mint box that I made for a friend.  He specified the color scheme, but left me to my own design.  It's a bit of this, a bit of that. He still has it too, must be about 4 years later.  A few jellyrolls, lots of translucent, always layering.  Sanding really does help the appearance when you're heavy with translucent.  Also, plunging the item, (nothing with glass mind you) into an ice bath after curing is good for optimizing translucency.

after 4+ years, looks like he needs another, the hinge on the box has given out. NOT THE CLAY THOUGH, its going strong!!
