Has anyone ordered these resin jellyfish before?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-Jellyfish-Modeling-Resin-Mold-Ocean-Theme-Fillers-DIY-Filling-Materials/254679411336?hash=item3b4c136a88:g:u8wAAOSwVoFfLMi9

If so, what’s your impression of the critters?

Thanks

Dan

 The link wouldn't cut/paste properly but Etsy seller https://www.etsy.com/shop/SugarBlushStudio?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=842973729 has some.

Larger, more detailed jelly fish aquarium decorations/toys but not as inexpensive.  Not unreasonable

Seems you could cut different lengths of florist wires, yarn, thread, coarse fiber string, lay them out in a starburst pattern, then put a glob of hot glue or clear silicon in the center.  The wire tentacles could be bent into shape and painted, and the fiber ones painted to give them some stiffness.

Could also also put down blobs of silicone sealer and before it sets, pull strands of it away from the blob.  Aliens don't need to be nice and tidy like we expect most creatures to be.

Out of season right now but the "gumballs" from sweet gum trees once opened would make a different but effective germ.  Anyone interested, I can send you some later this year.

What about using one of those "squishy" balls that have all the spines/tenacles from the toy departments?  Usually run around $1.00 each.

Thanks.  I’ll check it out.  I’m trying to avoid making any conversions with GS, Milliput or any other sculpting material at the moment.

There are these kinds of things, technically dog toys, you can find similar things for cats which are smaller and may be a better scale fit.

Love those jelly fish!  Too bad shipping from UK is more than the items purchased.
