Re: How are jem 20th bodies made? What are the swirls made of?
My bet is the body is laminated acrylic sheets, similar to level 1 bullet resistant glass. They probably lay down one sheet of acrylic, put down some swirl color, another thin sheet of acrylic, more swirl color and so on. They'd probably heat the laminate body section so that they would melt together. Then the body would be routed, sanded, polished with a torch, then final polished by hand. I doubt it's resincast as that would probably sound like crap.
