Hey guys, 


I was recently asked by a friend to replicate the Lexos popup crab by Umpqua tyer Lex Hochner. Let me know what you think!

I don't know what the original "Lexos" thing looks like ... but I love the looks of those crabs !!!

Looks very similar to the one Umpqua version. Why did you post this in the beginner's forum? This looks pretty advanced to me.
