More didj obsession stuff--

Making a new toy--trying some new tricks to make a PVC didj. This method uses a heat gun to press dimples into the sides to texture the inside more like a termite-riddled log might be, with bulges and dents, to get more backpressure and a richer tone. Not sure how well the technique itself works, since I was working with a 5 1/2-long pipe, longer than any other didgeredoo I've messed around with. But after futzing around for about three hours trying to make a mouthpiece (succeeding, ultimately) I got a deep, base tone that was stronger than any other didj I've played. Unfortunately, I can only sustain it for a few seconds, and if I try circular breathing, I start to see stars. Great sound, though.

I was thinking of decorating it by painting it black and doing the "Bunyip" story from Werewolf: The Apocalypse along the side in the stylized pictographic writing system that game uses. I'm wondering what I could get if I sold something like that on e-bay. Hmmm...definately a unique live-action game prop.
