This handsome trinket box in deep cinnabar red, is made from polymer clay on a paper mache base. A thin sheet of clay was embossed with a traditional Asian pattern of overlapped scallop shapes.

I then hand-molded the clay over the top and sides of the box lid to create this design. After firing, I applied a burnt umber antiquing glaze to the surface to add a rich patina and enhance the details.

Base of the box is paper mache painted in a slightly darker shade of red than the lid, and then finished with a very sheer coat of translucent gold for an understated glow that sets off the matte finish of the box lid.

This unique box would make the perfect unisex desk accessory to hold paper clips, push pins or mini Post-It note pads. And it would be lovely on a dresser for loose change, cuff links, or hair clips.

Size: 2 ½ inches square; 1 ½ inches high
