Oh god.  Kon!  *wants to grab my Kon plushie from home*

His tail is so cute.

Nice job!

I say, go for the Quincy cross on the back of his head!  Cheesy

Nice, it's very fine for your first stamps!

My first ones were pretty ghetto...

I love the heart and the bacon one!

I'm still not brave enough to do portraits in my stamps....

Go, buy a good #1 gouge - that saved my life many times.  I also like using the #6, the knife on the thing - it's easier to use than an exacto.
823  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Three parter question: materials, mediums, and font? on: February 07, 2010 09:55:39 PM
1)  Making a stencil - I cannot find freezer paper in this area to save my life.  Any other options out there?  (A clean image...is what I'm looking for.)

2)  What medium do you suggest?  - I have black acrylic paint, and the jacket top is synthetic as well.  I plan to heat set it, or am I going to get a crinkled look?  (The last top I made had that weathered look to it.)

3)  I'm making a top for a broadway party - going as Rizzo from Grease, but need the font for both the name piece and the cursive font for the back.  "Pink Ladies"...

Nice work!  Glad to know that stampers are still working on it!

I like the Lambda stamp.

I should carve a few more stamps - but sadly, inspection week is coming up and eraser shreds all over the floor do not make for a good look.

Thanks!  The Totoro one, I was basically holding my breath to do...very detailed and hard to deal with - I think I'd buy a staedler #1 carving tool for finer lines...

Thanks.  I might mount the Hello Kitty one - the size makes it hard to get a clear impression of the stuff...Cheesy

Stamps!

So, in a fit of boredom, I've taken up carving stamps.  The two chinese ones read: "tae ma die" ("**** your mother), and a rather drab "love" one.  The one under the chinese swear word is "operation beautiful.com" - my reason for getting into carving.  It's addictive; even if I have to clean up a shed load of eraser shavings!

Love it.  I've been carving mostly on those big "for big mistakes" erasers.  But, they aren't satisfying to do - although they take acetone transfers a bit better than anything else I've tried.
829  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Full Metal Alchemist swap? on: February 02, 2010 11:35:45 AM
I love Full Metal Alchemist, and even Edward's annoying exaggerations of being short!  So, just wondering if I could suggest a FMA themed swap.
830  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Help with organized craft shows... on: February 01, 2010 03:17:30 PM
So, I'm heading to Anime North...and I'm going as a crafter's corner person (I can't afford to not do this without it...)  Most of my stuff is going to be stamping stuff (Flamel's logo, MK logo, whatever).

So, I'm carving away like mad to start my stock.  Just now, I made three Flamel's logo from FMA.

Just wondering:

- how do you guys/gals package your stuff for craft shows?  (I'm thinking polybag with an insert)
- how do you guys set a price point on your work?
- what usually sells the fastest?
- how do you attract customers?
