Polymer Clay Day #9: Trinket Box ASK and Receive

Day 9 down. Another Goodwill find, converted to a God box. I love this scripture, ask and you shall receive.

This project was more time consuming than I anticipated, but very fun. I got to mix graphic design with clay-ing. I created the image with the Matthew 7:7 verse, glue it onto a rectangle piece of clay, took that and placed on a larger piece of marbled clay I had textured with a doily. Covered the image and gold rectangle with translucent liquid sculpey and baked the stack in the oven. After it cooled, I antiqued the larger marbled clay piece with dark brown acrylic paint. Glued this to the box top using Ranger Glossy Accents. Oh yeah, before attaching the clay to the box top, I sanded the box and painted it with Renaissance Gold Leaf paint. Then sprayed 3 coats of Mod Podge acrylic sealer over the painted box (drying 15 min between coats). I got the inspiration from this tutorial on the Sculpey website.
