It is a rhodium Cigar. The blank is "Fordite" cast in a solid red background. Fordite is old automobile paint which has hardened sufficiently to be cut and polished.

This was my very try at casting. It is Maine Hemlock cones from my back yard in clear PR with some glitter glue mixed into the epoxy. Thank you for considering my entry.
