It only saves a copy of the sent message if you click the box before you send.  Personally, I think it should save by default.

My real job is making moulds of sculptures, which is what leaves me with little free time;

Why am I not surprised that you spend your days surrounded by fine-art sculpture? Your tops, after all, are fine-art kinetic sculptures with shape, pattern, hand feel, and gyroscopic motion.

this is the last one I made, (mould + gypsum cast).

Stunning piece! Original artist?

1st thought: The folds in the leftmost angel's smock strongly suggest that she's either moving or just stopped. Not sure if the middle one's moving or posing, but the rightmost seems to be still at this instant. Masterful!
2nd thought: The folds in all 3 smocks are astoundingly lifelike, moving or not! How on earth did the sculptor carve them from stone?? Seems like some of those folds would also be very hard to mould.
3rd thought: Wow, could this have been the inspiration for Charlie's Angels? >:D

I am making other moulds now but I can't wait to start making my next top !    :)

And we can't wait to see it! They come when they come, but they're always worth the wait.

Achieving the "graceful arc" of a boomerang is definitely the hardest part.  But, the catch and correct also takes practice.  When I was first learning to boomerang, I felt like the top should be perfectly upright when it came back to my hand.  Eventually, you learn how to save a less than perfect throw by correcting the top in you hand.   But, you have the get the spinning top to your hand in order to practice that.  I started throwing tops as an activity while recovering from knee surgery, so a big scoop from the floor was out for me, which is why the skyrocket was the first trick I learned.  It was a way to get the top to my hand without bending.  Dale had also suggested using one of the launchers to start a top on a table or counter to practice the scoop without having to bend to the floor.  Any method that works for you to get the spinning top into your hand is good practice that will help later with the boomerang.  And, practice correcting the top with both hands.  The non-throwing hand will come into play with later tricks like wire walker.
