I saw opportunity in a broken piece of hairbrush.
I did a quick bit of research for what matchbox covers look like, and tailored one to suit a character whose colours are pink and white. In keeping with his aesthetic, I left the matches as they were rather than paint the shafts beige.
This is nice, but I still felt something was missing.
I used polymorph to sculpt some burnt-out matches.
A quick spray of black.
