they weigh around 65gms at the moment, so should be somewhere around 60 when dried.
A 40 mm sphere usually ends up around 65.
So these aren't far off.

And yeah, pretty cool Smiley

well the paint really helps.
Of course once you've put them ina  cardboard box and left them in the sun to dry and gone to do a job, it's not ideal when it suddenly pisses down with rain !

They seem to have survived Smiley

The 'silver' ones are a one off - there wasn't enough gas left in the can to spray the paint, so it kind of dribbled out and I dribbled it over the skulls Smiley

They definitely look a lot more skull-like with paint Thumbs Up

I think I need one along with the other mold, those turned out fantastic.

It ain't target practice if you keep hitting.

Was going to redesign - but once you add a quick and dodgy paint job - they really look the part.

I figure I'll be able to get at least 100 in the suitcase next year (usually have about 6kg left and I won't bother with the bugspray or kettle next year - so thats another couple kg). I can see losing more to people's pockets than to the target whistle

wonder how security will interprate them in the case scan noidea

not for me.
Ask uwe about carrying clay glandes.
He ended up having to put his in the hold for a cost of 3 euros per glande !

I have one of the most expensive clay glandes in europe upstairs lol

The guys from guam manage to carry just about anything through security checks. But with Romans charm and Guelu's luck - they're in a class of their own.

I'm not even going to attempt it. Smiley

Well, I wouldn't want to be the one to stop several large Polynesian/Micronesian dudes at an Airport for carrying twenty kilograms worth of stones...  Grin

You should fly with them and get a discount on luggage!

so i thought I'd see how many different face type things I can put on sling missiles Smiley

Trying to make a frowny face as well - but man that upside down smile is a lot harder to model than you'd think !
