Here are some results from the fun I have been having with Brandyn - I included links at the bottom of this post for my explanations as to what "Stumpsucking" is and what the tools look like.

Basically what you are looking at is my tiny little sculptures encased in a solid clear glass paperweight.
The little gecko (also could be a salamander) turned out great
the rocket ship was fun, gave us all sorts of other ideas...
Brandyn had made a bunch of octopuses on clear patties - they looked like spiders in the end :)
my beetle looked better before encasement... the antenna fell in the hot glass (they were soo skinny and tiny) and its just not that clear to see what it is...
the bee was pretty funny looking before and after! but it turned out pretty great, the wings didn't move a bit, the pollen on the legs is still there and visible... this one also gave me ideas... for instance making a bee hovering above a flower!

Next I am going to encase some ladies doing yoga...
