A pipe experiment...
« on: October 11, 2017, 12:48:49 PM »

I made a silicone mold from the lattice meerschaum that I already had.

I make a composite cast in that mold.

I coloured the cast....  and it came out like this.....

It's different, I'll give you that.  Not sure if I like it or not.
Better to study for one hour with the wise, than to drink wine with the foolish. (Drinking wine with the wise is my preferred option)
