Yeah, we used to sell these all over the place. The recession knocked the wind out of many of the gift stores we sold to, and they had to close. We are still at it though, 30 years later! We sell mostly online now. Thank you so much!
What gets me are the times when a word suddenly goes all alien on me. Like, I'll be typing along and suddenly, a perfectly ordinary word like "omelet" will become unfamiliar, and even though I do recognize it, it just doesn't look right. It happens to my husband too....
Ah, these are *stunning* I am greatly looking forward to getting one, and hoping you decide on beige eyes! (or get Pam to make that metallic beige color for them, they'd look SO pretty with that!)
Thank you for making such a stunning batch as LP! For the moment this is likely the only way I will be able to afford one of your beautifully detailed male Griffs! and the ocelot pattern just makes feel all warm and fuzzy!
It depends what material you are using. If your sculptures are cast gypsum ( plaster) or ceramic, acrylic paint works well with a Hydrocote or any clear acrylic sealer over it( NOT a solvent based finish) If your sculpture is made of polymer clay... use a finish that is made specifically for polymers, or you may end up with a sticky mess! I've done that!
Well i use super sculpey, a ceramic-like baking clay. I have some artist acrylics and some of those folkart enamels. As for sealers i have Krylon Uv-resistant clear acrylic coating and a brush on gloss glaze.
Don't use any solvent based paint on sculpey without testing it on a piece first. I had a sculpture get all disgusting and sticky from doing that. I think acrylics and water based paints are safe to use, but I am not an expert on painting sculpey pieces. I only paint gypsum stuff.
I associate gold eyes with griffins personally. Though if you want to shoot for a happy medium, use the gold eyes and give them TOUCHES of blue. You've seen how some eyes have other colors. Like a light ring of color around the pupil, or flecks of color in the iris. It might put a little more life to their eyes. Beautiful work!
