 Hi all! I usually post in the polymer clay section but I thought it would be fun to show this completed piece here. It's a custom piece that included certain elements requested by the customer. The hope is that he can make a good mold of it and cast it in metal to use as a gear shifter knob in an antique Cadillac. He stands about 3.25" tall, entirely polymer clay.

I'm not into skulls, but this is really good. I like the details on it & how you made it look like metal.

I love this! My cousin does this for custom hotrod/ muscle car accessories. He molds his and then casts in resin.

Thankyou both! Yeah, I'm no so into skulls either but it was an awesome experience to learn the features and all that.

Samantha, I had been thinking about making them myself, too and casting in resin. I guess they would need to be painted? My understanding is this will be cast in silver, I don't even want to think about how much that would cost =(

Wow, great job! Love the detailed work, I would like to see it once it is cast either in silver or resin. I think it would look good in a lead free pewter too.

Thankyou so much! I'm excited to see it cast, too, hopefully it won't take long! I hope it casts well.
