This was a fairly straightforward puzzle to make, first roughly 'ball shaping' 2 x Megaminx's, then filling the pieces on both of them before finishing off with a dremel and then sandpaper.
Afterwards a layer from each puzzle was removed and the two were joined together :)

Size : 114 x 70mm
Weight : 200g

Wow, very clever! I don't recall ever seeing round siamese puzzles before, let alone megaminxes.

I use a gloss black auto/car panel spray, about 3 coats is good, allowing 30 minute drying time between layers, it doesn't come off.
