Surprised no posts on that cool Dragon for Iron Fist - I know that some of the people I buy heads from do custom casting, thought that looks pretty complicated to cast. CastingCave and BigHeadStudios comes to mind. There are others

I have a question on casting - My wife bought a spirit house with some missing wood carved pieces that broke off. We have one that I would like to cast and make replacements. Any suggestions for something that will be outdoors?

I know right!!

I checked with casting cave and some others and they said it looks too difficult and they would end up damaging it.

I wonder about separating them at that center ring to cast them... it looks complicated, but I'm thinking 3D printing might be the best solution.

I don’t have a 3D printer and I would have to buy another one to separate. The 3d printed version wouldn’t be translucent though, right?!

No, you can get translucent filament. I would just recommend looking into reviews to see what ones people like best, because filament runs the gambit in quality.

It's not exactly the same, but I got these from RDJCustoms on Etsy.
