I did these bottlecaps- especially the "Mars" one- out of a curiosity as to how much time and materials they'd take. They were a lot of fun to do, though, so I am encouraged and will probably make more- and, of course, would be happy to do commissions if anyone wanted such. :)

I am honestly not sure if the completely-fabricated version is sensible. It's at least double the work- probably triple- and I'm not sure that it really adds all that much to the end result. If there's interest, I will probably fabricate another one (using the lessons I learned in #1), and then get it cast. This would avoid a lot of the careful fabrication (and thus mean lower prices), while still allowing for almost infinite customization.
