Default Shark Dreamsicle

I cast this shark vertebra blank so I get to name it...hence the "Shark Dreamsicle". The casting was a bit of a SNAFU, so I'm very happy with the outcome. It's good to be lucky! Thanks for looking.

Sweet! A very different color scheme, but boy you nailed it. As a SCUBA diver, I do like these blanks. But this color combination is very unique, and in my opinion - excellent.

Well done. (Oh, the final turning/finish/etc... is also, as usual - excellent. )

John, Mark, Mal, Jim, Jay - Thanks for the nice comments. I have to admit, the results far exceeded my expectations, especially after my PR had already begun to set before I had begun my pour and I wasn't going to use the pink PR but wound up needing more resin to fill the mold. Guess I should mess up more often!

Excellent Result Steve,
Spectacular Shark Vertebra Blank.
Striking Colours, the White to Pink and Orange, so appropriate.
Congratulations,
Brian.
