Elemental
I chose the name for this one based off all the color mixing and layering I did. The hand is sporting a psilocybin molecule. Mr. Smith helped with the wags on the bowl and the stem. I pushed this guy out right before leaving for the Seattle show. A special thankx to J-red, Gerrid and kev! These guys showed the great part of our community and showed lots of hospitality. You guys rock and my door is always open. This one belongs to Wicked 66 and will be at Champs. Thanks Jody for the patience!
