So this one is different for me a lil. Natural perc. FIRST off I wanna give props to Eusheen and JP, two innovators and respected artists. I put a few twists on some of their patterns. The layered window disc is a scorpion tail under a reversal window with a clear middle section. The other disc is a scorpion reversal in a scorpion reversal. The darker colored horns are whipped disco, silver seaweed, and moss. The lighter green are silver pearl whipped with millennium moss. Facet by Cowboy's Glass.Thankx to everyone for all the help and inspiration You all kill it. Peace
