Talked with my lapidary on the phone tonight about a mahogany obsidian base he's making for me. It will be mostly highly polished but with some of the original rough outside texture included. I got to pick the stone when I was in Seattle. It's for a jeweled platypus sculpture I'm making. I also want to have some kind of sea weed equivalent as part of it, but I haven't done the research yet on appropriate Australian plant life.
Final note: I really better watch my spelling in the tags. I almost posted "last" wax casting. There's something about being haunted by your spellings errors in the tags that's a little surreal.
