It's been a while ? 

I made this little house (as well a terrace houses) on a platform to sell. I painted the house using a textured spray paint then handpainted the small details. Sealed it off with a clear car spray (I know it's OTT ? )
The base is 3D printed then vacuum formed into a mould. I used bog standard cement but I think I will use some jesmonite....

I like it clean(ish) like this and I can't really bring myself to make it look Christmassy.... ?

cute, but that concrete must be quite expensive to mail!! unless you sell in a shop that is.

Thank you ? I can send up to a kilo for £2.79 so not that expensive. I do sell a lot during craft fairs which is much better as I get real feedback for my creations.

    I'd love to try to sell a few things at a craft fair. any good ones in London that you'd recommend? I was also looking into metal clay, the silver one. looks interesting and dries at room temperature too!

    I see, I feel like i my work is a little dark for that. But perhaps in the future. I also need to make some money before i donate any! Otherwise its kinda hard to help when you need help yourself!

     

    I tend to give most of my stuff away anyway. I like seeing the happiness it brings!

    The Patreon is a good platform but recent changes in fees resulted in less sponsors.
