Thanks Harro! you are always hungry, aren't you? ! You should post a pic of you in your fancy working place so people can see, how little is for you, hahaha!
I can't promise to finish the mug before you leave, is a complicated proses... anyway I hope so...

Thanks Bowana! I couldn't do it with out you, thanks for all the great tips, you are a real pro!!

Thanks Babalu! this thread about plaster mold making is saving me from doing a lot of stuff wrong, great timing my friend!!

Thanks seeksurf! don't eat the pendants!! your belly will hurt for weeks! Thanks for the good vibrations I appreciate them a lot!

Thanks Benella, is great to hear from you! we are waiting for the feet guy, what have you being up to?

Thanks Benz! i'm taking the inspiration from TC definitely, the pendants were Bowana's idea, and the clear resin I'm using is the one you can find here, because we don't have the one you use there. And the mug I'm trying to make is because TCers are telling me from the begining i should try mt luck at it. I hope I can pull it of... I'm not sure about that...

...Well this is how is looking so far

I didn't work to much on it yet because I've being making a ton of pendants (250 so far) to have stock for a long time, because this resin needs sun to cure, and we are entering winter soon, so I've being using all the sunny days to make them...
I've made a lot of crazy colors


Bad pic as always, but you can see a little the tones I've being making...
Thanks for looking!

Let's see here, I'll take a red one, a blue one, a yellow one, a purple one, a green one, that one that's yellow-green, that one that's sort of yellow-green but not as yellow-green as that other one, the one that's almost black but sorta blue, the one next to it that's sorta blue but almost black, the one that's ice blue, the one that's arctic blue (not to be confused with ice blue)........

! Thanks Benz! you are so kind!
Well I've made the plaster mold for the mug


And took a few copies, this is how they look like after a lot of cleaning

I did all this following the instructions on this thread
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=28065&forum=18&53
And I've made the masters for Hoku ili and Mr. Fuego pendants

Hope you like !

Thanks Harro & Benz !
Here you can see the Tikis with LED lights in them, now you can light them inside the box if you want too!




This are the ones that are hollow inside, they are made of paraffin wax, I'm thinking maybe I could make them out of resin, but I like the paraffin look better, I don't know, I have to keep experimenting... Hope you like
