had thought of either eBay or Etsy, but haven't quite decided - I have made a ton of them and really don't post too many here - I belt them out and usually get rid of them locally....if I put some up for sale, will post here - thanks and glad you like them

not so much really - as these are about 3" x 4" in size and hand cast plaster.....I guess they could be made from resin and downsized, but of course detail on the designs would be an issue.....

my suggestion is you can either buy or make your own mold - there's a ton on eBay, and you can certainly get one designed for candy, etc - just keep in mind that the food grade molds are very flexible and usually made of silicon.... and cast your own resin or poly pieces (as I am sure you want them to light weight) and affix them onto your custom machines.

if you find a specific piece of jewelery (for example) that has skull that you like, you can cast your own mold using a liquid latex or silicon mold builder...for a small $8 jar you could make 40+ molds if needed for a small casting....there are limitless tutorials on making molds, casting materials, jewelery, techniques for affixing them, and much more ([link])....just some ideas for you...just keep in mind, once you go through the headache of making the first one and you get the process down, then it's cake after that
