I would love to know more about how these are made. Any links you could post with information? also curious how big these really are? all of your pictures (which are really well taken dont get me wrong) sort of hide the scale of the projects

Thanks for all the feedback. I don’t know of any links of this process. Perhaps I will do a blog on the process once I figure out what I’m doing. This piece measures approximately 5 inches wide by 5 inches long by 3.5 inches tall.
