Default Finding Nemo

Decided it was time to dig the resin back out and try casting again. Its been a while. so I decided on Nemo as my inspiration. 2 solid blocks poured and taped together to cut up. Comments and critiques are welcome and thanks for looking.

More resin. Separated the orange and white with toothpicks to get the black in there. Pulled them after a few minutes and before they set up in them

I used to have a picture - way back in the early 2000's, of "I found Nemo", but here is a close approximation:

That is a GREAT casting!
