    As I said, I am back... :D

    This one was made for Bali-Flipper32 as a part of the GST, but due to some unfortunate postal events and to my busy work schedule we decided to drop the trade for now.

    So, what I made for him is an OTT slingshot, designed to be hold in the left hand, made from a plum tree fork with marbled FIMO clay palmswell and yellow vulcanised paper as a spacer.

    Sanded to 600 grit, finished with Danish oil and polished with beeswax wood polish and steel wool.

    As I wrote in the title, I can't put this up for sell since it was made for a trade, somehow it doesn't feel right, so I want to trade this one for materials, I don't have anything in mind but if you are interested, just send me a PM and let me know what you have to trade.

    Very very nice carving of the wood. The palm swell looks like flamed material. Excellent work.

    Thank you Bone! I am very proud of the palm swell, mixing FIMO clay colours is tricky, mix too much and they blend.





    Thank you Jeb!




    Thanks man! That's what I said, the only peoblem is that FIMO is not that tough as HDPE is.
