Yuppers. Good stuff.

I spotted another possible source of raw materials: the department at Cabela's where people who tie their own fishing flies get their supplies. All manner of odd colored, odd textured stuff there that I haven't seen anywhere else.

Ooh, that is a good idea. I don't know why it didn't occur to me (probably because I only find myself there once or twice a decade). A friend when I was a kid tied flies and I recall tons of crazy stuff for that. Definitely something to check out when I'm there next.

I've been queuing up enough ideas that I'm probably forgetting some but, just by chance, I recently figured out how to make my own "invisible thread"...the stuff magicians use. That ingredient alone should make for some very interesting possibilities....

Excellent shots, quite ambitious. The set up makes a great model look even better.

How did you get the specular highlights in the back ground?

There's this stuff you can buy at craft and party places that's basically shredded mylar foil for filling gift baskets and stuff. I taped that to the backdrop and moved the "stage" extra far forward so I could throw it all nicely out of focus. They were a little too pinpoint and "hot" in the first shots so I hit them with a fan so they'd wave around a bit while shooting.
