I guess I’m legally obligated to, that’s only like 43 million?
should be done in a week or two.
Winner of my omanyte giveaway is the-entire-population-of-kenya !!
as of this evening I will be exactly halfway through making and packing all these omanytes so to anyone who has ordered one: SOON.
Anonymous asked: hi there! what do you use to pigment your clays? :) ive always used chalk pastel but i dont know if theres a better way to do it
chalk pastel is probably the best way to do it, I use good oil paints but then you have to wear gloves while mixing them and wash your hands often when sculpting. I also use mineral eyeshadow for the slightly glimmery things.
Would have been better with googly eyes imo
I wonder what’s the smallest size of googly eye you can buy
Custom make ya googly eyes
I did but they don’t, uh, googly
Anonymous asked: Can you give us a general idea of how you made the helix necklaces?
I take translucent clay mix opaque clay and/or pigment into it, do this for both colours, portion out clay for body and shell, make the shell, make the body, put the body on the shell, bend and cut eyepins, stick in eyepin, wipe off dust/fingerprints with rubbing alcohol, cut pieces in equal parts for eyes, put eye whites and pupils on, transfer to paper on baking sheet, bake, cool in ice water, sand any rough bits, dry, use a pin with white acrylic paint for the highlights, let dry for hours, mix glaze, dunk in glaze, wipe off drips, wait 12 hours, rebake to harden glaze, take a moment to admire, attach jumpring and chain, put in box, draw on box, put box in envelope and say goodbye.

I decided to make custom R/B sprites for the current Twitch Plays Pokemon team! They’re transparent! Feel free to use them anywhere you like, you don’t have to credit, but it’d be really nice if you did. :>
aaabaaajss (Bird Jesus): Obviously looking holy, the laurels in beak represent victory.
AATTVVV (All-Terrain-Venomoth): Self-explanatory.
AAAAAAAAAA (King Fonz): AAAAAAAAAAyy
OMANYTE (LORD HELIX): The appointed god of TPP, risen from the Lord Helix. It’s facing away from the viewer because it is guiding Red.
AIIIIIIRRR (Air Jordan): Ready to SURF some waves and shoot some hoops.
AA-j (Double-A Jay): Also known as “Archangel of Justice.” It’s the battery bird, who’s had both positive and negative effects on Red’s adventure.
these are just so great, look at them
A witch and their absolutely useless familiar.
Red’s journal, Day 6-8: Faithful Digrat brings us back outside where it’s safe (repeatedly)
Red’s journal, Day 4-5: High Security Casino Basement
(if you haven’t seen tens of thousands of people try to play a game together it’s well worth watching twitch plays pokemon)
I retook pictures of these moon jellyfish post earrings since I made a new batch of them. A year later and this is still the only jellyfish item I have… absolutely shameful.
looks like I will make koi, oarfish and more pufferfish next, thanks for the suggestions!
(the list of stuff I want to make:)
I made this flying fish as a commission and I love how it turned out. I miiight just have to make a few more types of fish now that I’ve figured out how to make nice looking scales, any suggestions?
I’m selling a few extra ones here.
Best. Present. Ever.
My beautiful, talented, nudibuddy BFF, Jen has sent me this gorgeous, handmade, custom necklace of my favourite nudibranch Hypselodoris infucata, based on a photo I took on one of our best dives together. An idea she got from something I re-blogged last year.
We all know Etsy can be a magical place, but this shop goes above and beyond. Presenting Indolent Jellyfish.
I’m glad you like it! I love seeing where these things end up.
