Altered Match Box Assemblage




This assemblage piece is for a swap going on over at Tejae's Art Group on Yahoo.
We basically had to take a match box and alter it. I decided to use polymer clay because I just finished up a polymer clay class with Dayle Doroshow last month and one project involved using a match box. So, I felt fairly confident with this little project!!
I altered the match box first and then realized he needed a lower body to complete him. His lower half is made from wood that has been shaped and collaged. He measures about 7" in height. The only thing left to work on is some type of rope to open the match box drawer.
