I suggest having a look at MamaGeek's Lanura Windsong figure: http://www.reapermin...ong-elf-wizard/

Especially how she dealt with the translucent gems. Wow!

I built a boat. Spelljammer pictures here.

You will be censuring, do’t fairly though;
‘Tis possible a vertuous woman may
Abhor all sorts of looseness, and yet play;”

(1660 prologue to Shakespeare's Othello, the Moor of Venice, apologizing for the presence of female actors)


Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.

ok, this may not be helpful at all, but the key to translucent objects is seeing exactly where the shadows and highlights are. I tried to find you a similarly shaped object.

Corporea, this is actually very helpful! Gonna have to see if I can find a sample bottle of something I can use for just this purpose.
