Thanks. I've got a beautiful, perfect condition, fossil megalodon tooth which I used as inspiration for the serrations.

Very nicely done. I have wanted to do this type of thing for a while and I have made couple dragon teeth in the past. I based my on T rex teeth and they came out well. My only slight con is the large teeth look a little too much like a dagger with a handle and guard. All in all very well done. What are these made of and are you planing on selling copies.

Thanks! Yeah, the dagger-look was deliberate. There's a whole back story to them that I'm going to develop when they are finally available for sale. They're just resin casts of sculpts that I did, polished up and stained.

Oh, I thought they were fake. The looked like a dagger and pins designed like teeth. That is great that they are real. Really friggin' neat stuff. Might be awesome if steel reinforced and made into a dagger. (Pre-orders 2 of them.)

Thanks! If I could work with steel perhaps I would but alas it isn't one of my skills :)

Yes, I know what you mean. Though, you could work with an artist whom is talented with metal workings such as steel reinforcement to have that accomplished. And, if they are really cool, then they would take payment per the sale of each item. It is possible. May take a snag to find them, but surely is a strong probability.

Well done, these are gorgeous! I'd love to see some photos of them being held to show their physical size reference. Even with your description I'm picturing them as anywhere from a few inches to over a foot long. Such very cool things to see made. :3

Cheers! The canine is close to 6 inches I think but I'm going to take another photo with either my hand or a ruler to show scale.

The canine is a little big but the incisor is already being used as a pendant.

No such thing as a tooth too big to be tied around my neck.

That's an exaggeration, of course.

when I saw the thumbnale I thought they were little weapons made out of teeth XD (mainly because the biggest one looks like a knife... actually only cuz of that XD) amazingly done, only thing I think could have been done a little differently is a SLIGHTLY translucent(perhaps mixed with some solid white/whatever color you used) clay (unless you didn't use clay, IDK XDD) because teeth generally aren't so solid white

These guys are cast out of resin so they're a bit limited as to the colour. I did think about making a 2-phase cast with the root and internal section being made in the same resin as they are now and the enamel being cast using dental acrylic (which is translucent) but it would be complicated to do, time consuming and dental acrylic is reeeeeeally expensive. Plus sometimes combining different resins causes them not to set properly.
