    Did you mean to add a poll to this thread? For the record, you don't have to unless you want to.

    If you need a hand figuring out the software please let me know. I'm happy to help.

    Looks like morels to me. If you didn't make them and stick them in your garden... they are morels. They are really white. What is your location??

    I believe you live in Ohio and not Cali. So they most likely are Stinkhorns Phallus impudicus There is a Morel in California, Oregon and parts of Mexico that fruits year round called the Landscape Morel ( Morchella rufobrunnea ) It has also appeared in Mid Michigan in October. I can't see the top but it should have an opening on it.

    You are on to me. I live in Montgomery county and made these myself from actual shrooms I found this spring.

    Good job Dave on the sculptures ! I made some last winter while I was bored waiting for the Ice. Guess I should have called the ones you made Morchella esculentoides or M. cryptica....LOL IMGP0952.JPG IMGP0956.JPG IMGP0958.JPG PIC_0120.jpg These last ones are REAL Morchella esculentoides. I find them by one particular Ash every year.

    The cat is doing good. She was adopted by neighbors who just moved a couple months ago and took her with them.

    I made mine out of Cold Porcelain ( a video on youtube ) but I would use real Polymer Clay when I do it again. After a month or so the cold porcelain started cracking bad.Not real bad on the Morels but really bad on the gilled mushrooms. It's worth the money to by Polymer Clay, it's not expensive and it won't crack.

    I used platinum grade silicone mix. Thinned it to reduce viscosity, then poured it around the shrooms. After the silicone set, I split the molds in half, removed the shrooms and scrubbed the mold pores with a soft bristle tooth brush. Did the pour with a rapid set low viscosity resin. Now I need to figure the best way to paint them.
