The first puzzle is complete. I took James West's advice and made this one from a skewb, rather a Meffert's Mickey Mouse Ball. Milliput (2 packages!) were added to the ball. Then it was sanded down and painted with model enamel, a mixture of flat and glossy. Stickers were cut from 3 mil vinyl used by sign makers.

Thanks to Jaap Scherphuis for the sanding trick (scramble it while you are sanding to get all the angles right) and to Mark Longridge for the secret to finding adhesive sheet vinyl. Thanks to Denny Dedmore and Hendrik Haak for posting photos of (Tony Fisher's?) rhombic dodecahedra. And finally, thanks to Wayne Johnson for this wonderful forum.

Whew! Sounds like a movie star at the Oscar's! Hey, I know the puzzle is not that great, okay? But it was fun to build!

Next puzzle will be a rhomdo built from a 2x2x2.

So you going to sell any? and if so how much? I'm very interested in buying them from you. I'll go as far as $500.00 and below but it may take some time to get the money for you if thats ok with you. What other puzzles are you working on right now?
