    WOW! that's some incredible art work - woudn't use on a carry gun, but what a setup for display! Wow.

    Edit to add, if this is what you call "tinkering", I can't wait to see what you do when you get serious!

    The one with the green eye.

    No joke, if I cared for 1911's, I would buy those grips from you and buy a 1911 just so I could put the grips on it.
    That one speaks to me. It's scary. Like, really....

    ..amazing work!

    Thanks Guys.................

    They are pretty durable, and the stippling and relief work on some adds to the grippability...Alligator eye grips are gone but I can do similar design on grips for other makes...in fact I just ordered more eyes...thanks again, Pyro

    Pyro,

    You're very humble! You do excellent work!
    I've got an old copy of Paradise Lost with some Gustave Dore prints, maybe you could make some deep relief ones for my 1911? This work reminds me a bit of that...

    Pyro-Grafix,
    Excellent work, like other posters before me I am totally impressed with your work. I have always marveled at the artistic abilities of people that use any material at hand to display their abilities.

    Pyro, you've got some pieces there that rival most others. Very good work.

    Looks like a neat conversation piece.

    In today's litigious society I wouldn't get caught in a SD shooting with those on my carry gun, though.
