That is beautiful. What type of resin do you use and where do you get it? How do you get such a beautiful finish on it?

Wow George – that’s beautiful. I’d love to see what the process looks like for casting that piece – was it solid, or around a form of some sort?

Beautifully executed! I’d love to know more about the technique you use if you are willing to share it.
