Rapunzel Castle Box by sodacrush Rapunzel Castle Box by sodacrush
Rough walkthrough of making a hinged box from metal clay - no time to take proper pics of this lovely box (and I might never take any since it's not for sale) :)

Well over 150 hours of work went into this, everything was cut and carved by hand - no stamps, molds, or textures were used. The tiny bricks and turret on the box top were the worst :faint:. And the hinge broke so many times I nearly gave up on it.

Think it turned out lovely though :love:

Way to stick to it. Passion makes us crazy some times. ;) Well done, I think you should still post a proper pic of the finished product even if you don't intend to sell it. It's something to be proud of!
