thanks again everybody Smiley
magnum, in regards to filling tunnels, it's pretty self-explanatory.  i do it in layers; the first layer has to be filled on top of something that the resin won't stick to, like wax paper or rubber.  that way you have a solid layer that will prevent the rest of the resin from spilling out the bottom of the tunnel
QueerPenguins, working with resin can be difficult at times.  it's messy, and you have to be precise with measuring the amounts to mix together, otherwise your pieces will come out tacky or soft.  it's also difficult to mix without getting air bubbles into the resin.  different resin types are more viscous than others, and if you get a particularly viscous type, the air bubbles might never escape once they get trapped under the resin.  this is why industries use vacuum degassers--i don't have one yet but i'd like to get one (they are expensive, though).  they remove the bubbles out by sucking out all the air to create a vacuum chamber.
there are tons of ways to go about making these.  i'd suggest checking out the Smooth-On company website, since they make the products (that i think are) best fitting for this kind of work.  the rubbers and plastics they make are AMAZING.

In the very first picture, where did you find the rings (labret or whatever they're for)?

Very creative idea =)

i am impressed. I had a friend who was trying to stretch her piercing to wear a flesh tunnel and i have to say, its not my cup of tea - however, your crafts make it look very nice. I especially like the one which an original earring can be utilised within it. Im a designer and love my designer earrings, and by that i dont mean designer labels...i mean style. I'd recommend to you to sell them. Theres a lovely shop in Manchester, UK called Afflecks Palace and they would sell brilliantly in there!!
Anyway, keep making them and selling them to!!!

They are way better than anything I've ever seen in Afflecks!!! They are all stunning. Like a lot of people in this thread, tunnels used to freak me out. But these make me go WOW!!! I would love some more random piercings but my parents would kill me, lol. I have my ears pierced just 1 in each ear lobe, and have 1.6mm things in them. My Mum isn't keen on them:0( I love them. Do piercings shrink if you leave them out, and by how much?? I.e If I went to 3mm would they shrink back to 1.6mm if I left them out long enough. I'm sure there is a site with all these answers somewhere (where??)
