This is the sixth lesson in a series of tin transformations. It can also stand alone as a one time class. This class is based around a standard Altoid tin, eat the mints, we need the tin! You will be provided with a PDF download on sign up this provides the first part needed for class. I will demonstrate step by step how to make a range of mini candies from polymer clay. We will then transform the tin into a tiny candy shop complete with a display shelf and an open/closed sign. We will...
A clean empty Altoid tin. These can be purchased on Amazon too - Hulless 6 Pcs Metal Hinged Tin Box Container Mini Portable Small Storage Container Kit Tin Box Container, Small Tin with Lid, Craft Container, Tin Empty Box, Home Storage 3.7x2.3x0.8 inch. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071JJRQKZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_OUXcFbCH5JRT0 Scrapbook paper or colored paper to wallpaper your tin. Mod Podge glue Elmers glue stick Paintbrush Scissors A 12” ruler Polymer clay ( I will use Fimo or Sculpey) is better suited to the very small items we will make but it will require baking after class. Air drying clay can also be used - some colored air drying clay has a similar consistency and can also be used ( there are many options available on Amazon- just be sure it says “air dry” or bake) Tiny glass bottles can be used for this project. Cork stoppers or screw tops. Here is the type I will use. It is important that you check the bottles will fit in the tin. The base MUST be smaller than 2cm/20mm https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01499IVXK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_btf_t1_w94EFb2ES2THA Modeling tools (tooth pick and plastic knives, forks, pencils etc work just as well). Toothpicks for lollypop sticks. These will need to be cut in half before class. A 6” piece of embroidery thread or dental floss. Very narrow lace or lace stickers to decorate the shelf edges - optional A range of small letting stickers to decorate the outside of your tin/shop - these are optional. There will be a label to color and use on the PDF if students prefer. Please print the attached PDF onto card or paper. This will contain templates to cut out.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental Help maybe required for the following: 1. Polymer clay requires baking in the oven. 2. Some items may need strong glue to secure them in place. 3. Using sharp objects. 4. The tiny bottles are made of glass and we will create some VERY TINY pieces with polymer clay.
