Altered Maya Road tin

Black UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) shell is the focal point for this piece. I made a flexible mold with a seashell using Ranger's Mold 'n Pour.
Mold 'n Pour is a two-piece, silicone based rubber material that when combined/kneaded together and formed over an object, take the shape of that object...yet the mold is flexible and kiln/oven-safe to 800 degrees.
Into the flexible seashell mold I poured molten black UTEE (using my melting pot - also made by Ranger) and allowed the UTEE to harden. Popped black UTEE seashell from the mold and highlighted with gold Rub 'n Buff.
I then cut now retired 7gypsies map paper to size of tin interior, adhered. Using E-6000 I then attached the UTEE shell, a Swarovski crystal and brass silver dollar charm inside the tin and two ultra-strong magnets to the back. Sealed tin shut with superglue. X marks the spot!
