      Wow Erika! I swear man, you never fail to amaze me w/ your talented art work!!! I love all your pieces really, they're amazing. I had a thought, after seeing some art by Vinyl Art, I thought that you might want to dabble in that, not in the same way he does though. Vinyl melts and softens easily if you were to put it in the oven, not for too long or it'll start to burn but just long enough for it to soften, that's how a lot of people make Vinyl bowls. Anyway, I was thinking about that, and thought that if you softened the vinly you could probably mold it into shapes, hence what you do already with cassettes/film. Just a thought. :)

      Very cool. Nice composition. What's on the film?

      Gifts are the best. I love when people commission me to do gifts for them to give to friends and family.

      If you do try melting vinyl, careful as the fumes are toxic.
