Note: NEW RULES
Bidding starts at: $5
You can bid in the comments, or bid by emailing me [link]; it may take a while for an email bid to register because I check my email only once or twice a day.
Whoever bids the most wins. The final price is (winner decides) between $1 more than the second highest bidder, and what they bid. So, if someone bids $50 and you bid $100 and that’s the final bid, you pay whatever you want between $51 and $100. Please do not “auction snipe” with last-minute bids. This is more like a silent auction than Ebay. Pay Here: [paypal]
Bidding Is Closed! Nobody loves this art.
Large blobs of resin appear to form stress-lines inside as they cure. Or something. So the spaceship looks like it’s surrounded by heat-lines or something. It’s blurry. I’m not sure if I need to stir the epoxy more vigorously, or keep the stuff cool as it cooks down, or what. The resin is clear enough to act like a lens, so there are internal reflections of the space ship and you can look at it through a fun-house mirror and make it short and fat.
Anyhow, Tintin’s spaceship sits on a surface of maple burl with some swirls of UV-sensitive paint. I’m on the fence as to whether this thing is cool, or a failure.
