Introducing a totally new type of creature to my shop! This is the plush i showed some in-progress picture of a little while back, here. Unlike my other plushes who have cast resin faces and painted eyes this little guy has a hand-sculpted face with glass eyes. No molds or patterns were used in his creation so he will/cannot ever be produced again. He is for sale here.

This custom has just been completed and shipped out to America, this was request to look like an old sepia photograph, so i cast the face in a slightly dulled creamy colour and picked creamy-toffee colour fabrics to match. Her body is made from a curly faux mohair with a dark backing so it really looks old. When she was complete i ‘aged’ her all over with an airbrush, i’m so pleased with how she came out!

I have been busy working my way through my list of custom orders, here are the latest  – this one is on her way to Italy! She was really fun to make, i loved picking out all the fabrics that tone together. Her body is made from super soft brushed jersey fabric like you’d use for baby clothes :)

So i’ve been ill and while i was sitting on the sofa feeling sorry for mysef and watching Gossip Girl, i made this – What do you think? He is hand sculpted and painted, and finished with a durable glossy laquer to really bring out the metallic paints i used. I’m working on a couple more, and some smaller items that will be avaliable in time to buy as Christmas gifts :)

Heres my messy desk with what i’ve been up to lately on it! I’ve had a few days off work this week and ive spent my time working on custom orders, painting, going mental over the new Paramore album (Hayley Williams is my latest  all-consuming celebrity crush) and working on my own projects – Lots of messing around with polymer clay and experimenting with using glass eyes. I was unsure if they eyes would expand when i cooked them so this was a test, to see what happened. I tried this in the past with plastic eyes but they slightly melted and lost their shape, ew! I didnt think i’d use this face but i’ve ended up really liking him! I’ll finish him off next week. I’ve been experimenting with making polymer clay jewellery but i’ll share pictures when they’re a bit more finished.

So my websites been acting up a little while i migrate from the old version of it’s software to the new. I have a bunch of stuff i want to blog about but the site seems to have a life of its own at the moment  and it decides wether it wants me to blog it or not, ha! So i thought lets have a lottery competition i can run for the next week or so and hopefully by then it’ll be back on track. Back in March i gave away three Jellyfish keyrings to three subcribers to my mailing list, chosen at random, and im going to do the same again except this time theres only one prize, this white jellyfluff!

Next Friday (October 9th) I will use a random number generator to pick a member of my mailling list to recieve this white Jellyfluff.  If you would like to be in with a chance of winning and aren’t on the mailling list already, leave a comment here or send an email to:Photobucket

If you’re already on the mailing list then no need to do anything – you’re already in with a chance of winning :) Good luck!
