    Hey gang,

    Well, after looking around for some decent clay (minimal shrinking and no cracking), I found Claystone self hardening clay at dickblick.com.

    I sculpted ( :lol if you can call it sculpting) the Indy Sankara stones from solid clay. It took about a week for the outside to harden enough to the point where I could sand it down some. I think the middle may still be a little soft, but I can't really tell. I then gave them a multilayer paint job using red oxide primer (as both a primer and a secondary color), gloss brown, flat black, metallic brass and a final clear coat.

    The antidote vial is from a member, Capt_Zak, on COW. I used windex as the antidote.

    Anyhow, on to the pics:

    Enjoy.

    You need to get yourself some monkey brains.

    Thanks guys :D.

    If you asked my GF, she'd say I already do :lol

    But there are a few more pieces I'd like to add along the way, chilled monkey brains being one of them. I'd like to also add the sanskrit cloth and maybe a nice Club ObiWan poster (not too big though, maybe in the 8.5"x11" range)
