Redditor Qoth recently uploaded an album of clay polymer artworks affixed to the outsides of Altoid tins. The post quickly went viral, with the accompanying Imgur album already viewed 177,000 times in the first 10-hours.
The artist is Qoth’s mother, and most of the artworks below were made as gifts for family members. According to comments, each piece can take days to complete. And the polymer clay actually affixes to the tins after being placed in a toaster oven.
With the unexpected surge in popularity, fans of the artworks can hope to see an Etsy storefront in the near future. I’ll be sure to update the post with the artist name, bio and link to the online store once it’s made available.
Until then, enjoy these miniature masterpieces![via Qoth on Reddit]
