I am super pleased with this box. It’s two separate molds. The base box took quite a bit of resin, but is smooth and beautiful and full of possibilities. The frog was half-poured, and by the time I remembered I needed to finish him, I didn’t remember what I’d used originally. So I used leftover resin…which just happened to be from the box. I think he looks pretty great.
I sculpted this Venus of Willendorf a year or so ago because I wanted to make a resin mold. I like ancient goddesses. Because she is in polyclay, the mold turned out less glossy than I wanted. Also, I needed to separate the head mold or she ended up with a flat top. Wasn’t sure how to fix those things then, but now I am. She’s getting a gloss coat, and a re-mold.
Because let’s face it, if the original makers had had glitter and mica powder, they would have used them.
I was wondering what to do with this little engraver I have, when I came up with these necklaces. They are fast and fun to make, so I made a bunch. Yep, that’s my signature skull up front.
So will there be an online shop again? Not until after Springoween, and then, not on Etsy. I figure if a site frustrates me as a buyer (and oh, it does), then I probably shouldn’t sell there. Shop will likely be right here.
Another Springoween item I’ve been working on are Rusty Pins. They are made mostly of paper, with bits of vintage lace and jewelry, and other odds and ends. They are a blast to make–just don’t get them wet. Feeding them after midnight is at your discretion.
