Nose Lamp in progress

So some of you might already know I've been working on a prototype for a Nose Lamp. I made a clay model of my own nose, about 5x scale, made a mold of the model, and I've been casting noses in clear urethane resin. I've been experimenting with different casting and mounting techniques and this is the one I'm leaning towards now. Basically the translucent nose is mounted on a box upholstered in velvet, and a candelabra light shines through the nose. It makes a great sconce light. What do you think?
The next step is to make a better production mold and then start cranking out nose lamps. Anyone want one?
