how do i embed an object in a large transparent block (think jeff koons or damien hirst)? Answered
if i want to embed an object (say a pair of sneakers or a football) in a square transparent block using a material that i could pour into a mold as a liquid and which would cure relatively slowly as to let a bottom layer begin to dry as one puts the object in so that it won't sink to the bottom, what would be the best option for doing this AND the most cost effective if i wanted to do larger projects?
originally, i assumed that fiberglass resin was the only option, but it's VERY expensive ($60+ per cubic foot... or so) and i'm hoping that there may be a more cost effective, easy to use material.
thanks in advance,
