Thanks for posting those Ray.  I've seen several of Matt's creations, but that one takes the cake.

Shannon, that's the way I feel until I see another one of Matt's creations...each one seems better than the next!  Check out this mother load of Matt's goodies:

He's such an amazing talent - it's hard to imagine that he actually has time to do so many intricate and detailed customs.

Thanks so much for the praise. You guys are great You are gonna give me a big head... which is reallly difficult because I already have a huge head. Seriously, I think my hat size is 7 3/4.  Oh well... That Glenn Strange figure which started this thread is a large scale figure, and quite nice. It was featured in an early iissue of Horrorshow  magazine and I was blown away by it. You guys are gonna love what I am working on right now.... I am so excited by it.  Oh-- and Andy, I made the niftiest Creature's Crate out of that barris Bathtub Buggy you gave me. If only I didn't stink at taking pictures.  Oh and I have to say I LOOOOVE that 1/2 scale Son Of Frankenstein. Astonishingly beautiful. Glad to finally be aboard-- Matt Jaycox

I shared this a while back over at the YG, but it's too good to not share again.

I was blessed to receive a Jaycox masterpiece myself. It is one of my most prized fantasy possessions.

BTW, it's great to see Matt's name show up here at the new forum. Welcome Matt (no pun intended)!

Re: Anchor Hocking Placemats

I'd like to know what the hell kinda scanner Richard used to "unwrap" that  monster glass art?! (I'd also like to see the unwrapped Creature, if anybody can provide a pic?)

You're welcome - I have no idea how he scanned them, though.  What can I say?  He's the master.

Believe it or not Mike, it was a regular scanner. The way he described it to me was a very tedious set of multiple rotations which when pasted together would make for a flat image. I forget the actual number of rotations it took to complete the image, but it was a lot! I remember Richard telling me he almost gave up. Sure glad he didn't! It's a masterpiece! Richard not only has lots of talent .. he has lots of patience too!

regarding scanning images from glasses or round objects:

If you just want the image... here is a trick I cooked up a few years ago. I think it is quite clever if I do say so myself.

Take a clear piece of overhead paper (acetate) and tape it around the glass. Do a good tracing using a sharpie marker. Once done, unwrap the acetate and you have a perfect flat tracing.  If you want to scan it, simply place a sheet of white paper behind it.
