Well I wanted to make a prop that nobody had done and no two are the same as they're all individually painted. Turned out ok I thought......and makes a handy door stop. ;D

It's better than ok! It's one of the nicest Indy artefacts I have. Beautifully made. It's sitting in the corner of my nerd room- staring at me...

The green moss staining looks very convincing from the pic, among other things.

First of all, this is a totally cool prop. What's it made out of/How did you make it. Second of all, are you in the vendor/prop making business. If so, let us know the deal. I could see this as a cool thing to pick up.

It's made out of a resin plaster called Jesmonite to give it a hefty statue weight and feel. Unfortunately the run of 10 is all sold out so only a few gear heads got them. :(

Are you planning on doing another run. I'd be interested in hearing if you are, pricing, number, timeline etc.

I think it would require some serious arm twisting...

There won't be any more I'm afraid :( I've had to replace a couple that the club fisted sloths...sorry , delivery couriers have smashed in transit so the whole project is turning into chore rather than a pleasure as they're all hand made, finished and painted. Maybe DJD's piece will accumulate in value. ;)
