Abraham lincoln head mold

Featured
Picture of abraham lincoln head mold
having moved from south east Texas to central Michigan i got to experience a my first true winter  .everyone here takes the snow fall for granted but to me its still just amazing and absolutely beautiful .it also became the inspiration for my tenth instructable.  i wanted to make a snow ball mold. me being me  .i couldn't just settle for a simple round snow ball 

the day after my wife and i made it to Michigan we went to the Henry Ford Museum (i recommend going if you have the chance) where i got a plastic injection molded Abraham Lincoln head from a souvenir which i put in the window ledge and pretty much didn't pay any more attention too .until one night while getting into bed  i had a flash  .why not make a snow ball maker that would make the snow balls shaped like Abraham Lincoln's head   

sadly i wasn't able to finish the mold in time to make a snow ball with it  .however there is a slight chance of a late snow  .if the stars aline i will add photos
