STORE INFO + PRICES

--------------------------------

DO YOU KNOW ME IN REAL LIFE? PLEASE READ THIS FIRST BEFORE CONTINUING TO READ MY DEVIANTART JOURNALS

--------------------------------


After an ENTIRE WEEK of moping and feeling depressed, I am finally back to myself mentally ( more or less ). Don't know why that was such a long thing. I'm suspecting the lack of pipettes honestly- I actually go into nervous-wreck territory when I can't work for too long. I need to feel like I'm accomplishing something.

Did I get my pipette shipment?

FUCKING. NO. LAWL.

But I got fed up and drove across the city to go buy a few from a science store to tide me over. They mostly ( like 95%? ) sold stupid little gadgets and gimmicky toys, but behind the counter they actually had real science supplies LIKE PIPETTES. So I spent 5 bucks, after like...$15 of gas to get there LMAO

Anyway.

I spent all day furiously working. I made three batches of resin copies ( various items ), assembled a few bubble necklaces, took pics of completed items, edited the pics and posted a few new necklaces in the store ( all bubble necklaces, hence no new DA submissions ), did a digital shopping trip for findings I'm running out of, and called Telus to get my plan updated. CALLING ANYONE IS VERY HARD FOR ME and this was calling to try and get my way. It took 45 mins and I was sweaty and gross after, but I got them to take $15 of my monthly bill. Pretty proud of that. I didn't get mean or shitty with them either, just firm about being with them for years and paying off my phone etc. I also finally got my caller ID back ;_; No more nervous breakdowns about who could possibly be calling ^o^

What's coming soon to my store?

- Tatl & Tael bubble style earrings
- Fucking Toothless x3
- Sitting fluffy fox necklaces x3
- Ghostly Boo necklace x1 [ ugh 2 were trashed due to bubbles ] if it sells fast I'll make more.
- Skull raven necklaces x2
- Fox skull with antlers necklaces x2
- possibly Owl Buddies if I can think of more paintjobs

So obviously I have a lot of painting to do soon. I was planning to do painting tomorrow but I think I overreached and I won't be able to get the resin copies sanded and primed tonight. I'm just too bloody exhausted mentally. I'm going to mindlessly colour a halloween pic of Sid, Farz & Raven instead. I'm pretty sure I'm fighting off a cold since I stop being able to breathe at night lately. I don't think it'll become a full blown cold though. My immune system is pretty good.

Buh. What was I typing about. Anyway, stuff in the store in hopefully a few days.

Most of my sculpts are made from a mix of super sculpy and sculpy firm :D It's about 1/4 super sculpy and 3/4 sculpy firm.

and Thank you! <3

Can I ask for some paint advise? I'm making another Toothless sculpt (if your interested I have a pre-baked pik up), and am wondering how to do those really feint markings he has on his sides and wings, do you maybe have any advise?
