I love working on my partner's stuff. I wish classes didn't exist so that I could work on it all day! I think being surrounded by all this Alice stuff is just super fun. Smiley

^^ Yup! The sidebar was added a couple days ago and I've been busy switching servers (agaaain) rather than continuing to work on that. Thanks for your input!

Yeah, I was going to suggest casting but I totally get what you mean about wanting to keep it original. My opinion is that if someone wants a unique original like that, one that you've spent 15-20 hours on, then they're going to have to pay that price, you know? I can see it happening if you display it somewhere super fancy, though.

Would you consider casting if you kept it as a limited edition set of say, 10 or 20? That would allow you to still be able to keep your sculptures somewhat exclusive while drastically lowering the price and opening it up to a whole new market. And you don't have to think of it as "just a copy" - you couldn't have done it without the original! The entire thought process and human work still went into making that piece. You're not spitting it out of machines or anything, right?

Hey everyone! Here's mah websiiiiteee: http://fluxxii.com/

I want to know just one thing about it before I go crazy and send the link off to everyone: how's my content?

When you look at the site, are you thinking, "Wow, this is great/interesting! I would love to support this!" or is it more like, "Okay yeah, mental health, I get it, stop mentioning it already." Sometimes I feel like it's too overwhelming and too cheesy. Is it to corny? Opinions?

If you have any comments about the design I would love those too, but really I'm more concerned with the text and content at the moment. Smiley Thanks!

Woah, those hand grenades are REALLY freaking cool. It will definitely be hard to find the right market for them, but I definitely think that it is out there! As far as pricing goes, it really depends on a lot of things. How big are they? How much are the materials and how long did you spend on them?

It's very cool! I love how the website theme also fits the style of your products. I was just going to mention exactly what BullyMart said - although I'm not huge at the idea of search engine optimization, there just really isn't much for search engines to read. Other then that, I think it's great!
29  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: The random soapy babble thread on: March 02, 2010 09:09:35 PM
It's midnight and I just got a GREAT idea for soap and I want to do it now!! Why do stores have to close?!

Anyway, I want to try putting tea into my soap (ginger peach tea, mm!). Has anyone done this before? What's the difference between making the lye solution with brewed tea and actually putting the tea leaves into the soap as it comes to trace? I have a faint idea, but I'd love some experiences and insight before I actually try it out.

I think one thing you have going for you is that your pieces truly stand out, which might allow you to raise the prices a little more. I agree with morglanc - it's something that I see and really want, but I don't wear hair pieces enough to justify buying it. That's really a personal thing though. I like the idea of offering simpler pieces, but you should probably keep several of the more intricate pieces in stock.
