Fate fell short this time.

Ask me anything   I am an occasional artist and crafter, and always lover of imaginary worlds and delicious sandwiches. My favorites include Hellboy-verse and fluffernutters, so idk draw your own conclusions from that.

I run Octopodes Garden on Etsy: Click for cute crafts!
I also have a cosplay blog: Cosplay Progress

ikfantasy-2 asked: How did you make those wayfinders? O.O Can you tell me what you did?


Answer:

Sure! I sculpted the original pieces out of polymer clay (this was the super-time consuming part!) and made some silicone molds. The finished Wayfinders are cast in urethane plastic from those molds. I used CastMagic powder for the “metal” parts, along with liquid color tints.

rattle-and-burn:

Look at the needle, now look away.


Look back at the needle.


The needle is now gone. OH GOD WHERE DID IT GO.

This is an accurate description of every sewing project I’ve ever done.

Unsure of how I’ll display these yet, but here’s a preview of the pretties! They’ll come with your choice of a long string or a shorter ribbon. And I finished painting up some Kid-Loki charms I made with extra material too!

I made a thing! Cast plastic transparent wayfinders from Kingdom Hearts: BBS. This one was just a test to see if the mold works, now i’m gonna make more in appropriate colors!  Will have a couple for sale at Otakon, and they’ll be in my shop after that. 

So shiny :) :)
