Plastic Stage

In this stage I roll out a block of clay flat so later I can cut a square out from it. This is done by using two sticks so the clay doesn't become completely flat. You also need a rolling pin and a mat so the clay does not stick to the surface.

Measure the square with a ruler to make all of them precise.

The squares should be equal and soft enough to attach. Then you need to cut multiple diagonal lines on the edges of each square so they can be fitted perfectly.

Plastic Stage

You need to cut out a square of a piece of paper using a ruler and scissors to make a template. Then you need to traced the template onto the rolled down clay to create 6 separate squares.

In this sequence you need to create the lid which needs a smaller square that will be attached to the bottom of the bigger square. Next you need to create a small rectangle to be the stand of the sphere you will be attaching to the lid.

Leather-hard

In this stage you should sponge your creation until it is smooth.

Bisqueware

During this stage you need to glaze the box and lid to a color of your desire. The colors for my box is two layers of royal blue and two layers of black. I recommend to use a thick paint brush.

This is what your creation should look like. The size and colors can be up to you. After all the glazing, your creation will be fired again for the final look.
