    I just had a great idea! How about if I do some pieces of amber containing blood-filled mosquitos? Not the giant Elephant mosquito of course, as it's a non-bloodsucker, but the smaller common brown mosquito (I can get loads of these).

    Here's a pic of what I mean:

    Thumbs up

    Now I've just made some amber egg toppers with genuine large JP style mosquitoes! These are actually of the same species as used for the original cane prop. I successfully did 4 of these today and a near perfect cane shaft, far better than my original attempt. Ebay...here we come!

    Can you sell replica's of movie props without a license agreement with the jurrasic park franchise?

    Well, if it is a problem to sell one, then I'd better not. Although, if anyone knows more about this kind of thing.. please tell me, I don't want to step on anyones toes. There're a lot of people creating Predator costumes and selling them on ebay, so I just don't know. Maybe the studios are ok with it as long as it's not a direct copy/recast.

    My mined amber rocks shouldn't be a problem as they just look like regular fossils dug out of the ground...part of the natural world.

    My understanding with creating stuff that is licensed by somebody else is that it is okay as long as you do not start looking like a rival manufacturer and are actually starting to take customers away from their own franchises.

    Simple one-offs or small runs of props/replicas fall under their radar and in some cases make them feel proud that they have something that is worth simulating.
    So, where will your imagination take you today?...

    Thanks for your reply, that's what I was thinking too. There's so many dinosaur sculptures I'd like to do, I just wish I had more time to work on them.

    Some views of the canes that I have now finished. I may frame one on a board and put another inside a perspex case. I cast the shafts in resin and stained them to look like wood. I love this little row I did! One of the bugs is a huge spider with a red colouring.

    These look really nice, good work. As its just an insect amber I dont see a sale / license problem since they dont own a trademark an amber piece on a stand, unlike say their creature designs. If you dont put the film name in the sales page I'm sure you'll do well
