Thanks SneakyJack, I think I need something more permanent than a paintball On second thought, an emptied paintball might make a good epoxy mold - maybe that's what you were thinking. My latex mold turned out good - ball size is better but it's too dark red. Need to make a new one with less dye then net and hang it.




I saw a plain white skull mug for a buck at Dollar Tree and couldn't pass it up I used it as a practice piece to see how underglazes work out. It didn't turn out spectacular, but it gave me an excuse to try out a 360 degree photo animation idea.

Clarita and MP thank you, it's good to hear from both of you. I know Clarita's been busy carving beautiful bamboo but MP, what are you doing with your talents?

Ken, you (and others on this board) are teaching me so much about what it means to be an artist. I wasn't impressed by the way my Tapa Skull turned out - maybe it was the colors, maybe the design, or maybe the execution. Frankly, I was done with it and ready to move on. But I see that you and others keep hammering at a theme until you get it PERFECTED. I need to work on patience So I went back down to DollarTree and picked up a few more skulls (they're on sale for 50 cents now) and I ordered more colors of ungerglaze, I'm ready to try again! Thanks
