Some progress pictures from one of my current projects, it's not finished yet!

A Black Lotus from Magic - The gathering.
I'm making this as a tournament trophy for the swedish northern championships that will take place at Nordsken (local computer- and boardgame convention)

The petals are just thin layers of paint cast into poly-optic resin, layer by layer.
The idea is to make a Black Lotus frozen into a block of ice (to give the trophy a northern element).

In the picture to the right a lamp behind the lotus shows the general idea with the lighting.
The finished flower will get a purple, blue and red-ish glow from within with some fiber optics - the petals are arranged so that a light source in the center will light them up like in the original card illustration: 


Can wait to finish this, it's going to be really cool
