  7. I've started to put together an entry for the "Paleo Re-creations" forum but it will take some time to get all the info entered in and ready to post. My first step has been to create a gallery. I've begun to garnish it with information regarding each plaster or resin cast. Currently, I have the album loaded to the gallery titled "My fossil replicas (casts in plaster and resin)." My Isotelus replica has comments attached now. I'll provide information about each image via comments. Upon completion of that task, I'll write a short article posted here on "Paleo Re-creations" describing my successes and failures so that we can have discussions regarding making fossil replicas as amateurs. I am looking forward to learning a great deal from each of you on this subject. What I know I will happy share with all of you. Bill Heimbrock - billheim@cinci.rr.com
  8. isotelus plaster cast with base

    From the album My fossil replicas (casts in plaster and resin)

    This is a plaster cast of an Isotelus maximus trilobite from the Late Ordovician of Cincinnati, Ohio that I produce for my fossil club for sale at gift shops in the area. 100% of the money goes to the club and I bill the club for the materials. Sales have been kind of slow. It's not a popular item for some reason. Not sure, but my hand paining is a little splotchy and I guess people have been desensitized to replicas because of mass production. The plaster is just plaster of Paris I buy in a big bag at hobby stores. I first spray paint the whole thing, top and bottom with grey primer. After a couple of days, I use masking tape to cover the top of the shale, leaving only the trilobite exposed. I then spray paint it with dark taupe and then with the same paint in dark brown. I immediately wipe most of the dark brown off with a paper towel, leaving the darker colors in the grooves the same way you would see it look on a real Isotelus trilobite. A final touch before removing the masking tape is to buff the trilobite with a shammy cloth or lint free cloth. Yes, I have to touch up the shale with paint after I remove the tape. The tape does not do a perfect job of masking these fine details. Send questions to the Paleo Re-Creations Forum.

  9. Possible Inner Cast Of A Hormotoma?

    Hi, can any members help me identify this fossil gastropod I bought a few years' back from a junk shop? I don't know its age or its location. It could be Jurassic from Dorset, southern England, but that's only a guess. So, too, is my own identification, that it's an inner cast of a homotoma. No idea as to the species, though, and it could well be something else. Any sea slug lovers out there?
  10. I understand why collectors seek genuine fossils over casts, but sometimes I really do wonder why some people have such a tremendous disdain for casts and replicas. I had recently went to the local dinosaur museum exhibition with a group of colleagues, and one of them was rather startled once he learnt that the majority of fossils being displayed were casts. In his own words, he felt like "he was scammed". In another case which irks me, I was teaching a group of children about various fossils. Most of the fossils I was using were real except for a few teeth which were casts. A 5-year old girl happened to be holding one of the casts, and asked me if it was real. When I explained it was a cast, she exclaimed in a most disgusted voice, "Ew! Fake!" and quite literally slammed it back down onto the table. (I was just as shocked at her lack of manners, as I was at her extreme reaction). I am not asking for collectors to switch to buying casts, but how do we convince the general public that casts are very important, and that they are here to stay?
  11. Arizona Bivalve

    This one came from Arizona, near Ash Fork, Yavapai County. Cretaceous... I think... However, the underside looks like something else, almost looks like underside of Turtle Shell.. What do you think?
  12. As far as I am aware, the vast majority of folks here have fossil collections that were dug up by yourselves. But what would you say to casts and replicas? For most folks, it is snarge near impossible to own the skull of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, or the imprint of a 2.5 feet long Meganeura dragonfly or a 6-inch Megalodon tooth. Thus replicas and casts come into the picture, and many museums and exhibitions use reps and casts as well. Would any of you purchase casts or replicas?
