With the new molds I can make hundreds more...  Right after I finished this project, I got a request for a 2"x6" tile with two buffalos facing each...

Below are all of the new three inch tiles grouped together: Here is a bit of the process of making them: Above is the frog, right after I finished sculpting it. Below is the bat.
