I am a creative person and I like to make stuff. I have a china cabinet full of Southg American "replica" artifacts, and I think it would be cool to have the golden idol from the Raiders amongst the other things. So, anyone have any insight in how to make my own. I was thinking clay and gold paint. Any theories?

My first question would be, what sort of mediums are you comfortable with. What mediums do you have access to?

The only thing I was able to think of was potter's clay. I have never really done anything like this before, but I know that potter's clay is convenient because as long as you keep it wet, you can still mold it. Whereas something like plaster of paris would be a bit of a pain because I would have to make a mold to pour the plaster into and I don't know how to make a mold. If you have suggestions for materials I would love to hear them, because I don't really have any ideas.

I think that resin is a popular material for making idols, although I don't attempt to make them myself - but I know a man who does, check out http://www.indyprops.com
