This is the first box I made with my Colour De Verre casting molds. Overall I am pleased, particularly with the base. The lid bubbled, but I was experimenting with inclusions of watch gears and figured it might bubble. Even using the Dremel with a diamond bit to pierce the bubbles did not help in most cases, except to smooth them out a bit. The gargoyle ended up losing his shape, but I think it was a good first try.

Enjoy!
