Okay, I lied - not quite done cat spamming yet. I just wanted to show off the ones I cast tonight. The one on the far right is my personal cat - he’s white to blue gradation with a heavy dose of opalescent glitter. I also really like the opal cat next to him.

If you’re looking for something new to do this Halloween while waiting for the Trick’r’Treaters, take a look at Salt & Burn! In this original board game, you play a Hunter out on the road hunting down Monsters and saving lives, collecting cursed and enchanted objects, and trying to survive past Tuesday! The Original game has over 300 unique cards, 12 Hunter characters to play, 2 die, a full color illustrated rule book and 6 acrylic player tokens.
You can get this game in time for Halloween if you purchase it by this upcoming Sunday, 10/27! [Domestic/US]
Beyond the Original Game, there are 2 booster packs and 1 expansion pack that alter the gameplay significantly to give you a variety of options when it comes to style of play to fit your group of friends. You can learn more about the Bitten Booster Pack and the Brothers Booster Pack or the End of Days Expansion in their listings. Happy Hunting!
the rise and fall
I just wanted to write a quick note to thank everyone who helped me with E4K this past weekend, either by donating or by keeping me company while I worked. :) With your help, I was able to raise $1,517 for Random Acts! It was a lovely, affirming experience and I hope to do it again next year!
I cast 26 kindness cats, 21 two-headed foxes, 5 four-eyed red pandas, 7 llamas, and 12 horned cats. I also sculpted a figure of E4K9, worked on my book ends, sculpted a terrible head and did a demo on how to fix it, worked on my POP figures a bit, and did sundry other small tasks.
I’m now on to the arduous and unenviable task of boxing up figures, making and writing thank you cards, and getting all of this in the mail. I’m hoping to get everything packed up by the weekend so that I can make one huge postal voyage on Saturday.
As a note, the casting is slightly unfinished - I am trimming the edges along the bottom, but I am not sanding to level them out. I personally like being able to see the raw, shiny resin on the bottom… but if you don’t like this, you can easily sand the bottom edges to make it smoother.
If you emailed me, I have done my best to accommodate your requests… even if I haven’t had time to reply to emails. If you have not replied to my request for your shipping address, please make sure to do that as soon as possible! I can’t send you a figure if I don’t know where to send it. The email to write to is email@example.com.
Thank you again! The cat spam has come to an end, so you can all breathe a sigh of relief. ;)
I’m not sure - I need to take inventory of what I have made and get everything packed up to go. The molds are starting to break down after the heavy use, so I’m not sure how many more I can make… and how many extras there are. I’m not actually sure how many I’ve cast.
If I do continue to send out figures for late donations, it will likely be a blind-box situaton, where you wouldn’t be sure which animal or color you would be getting.
I’ll post about it after everything is packed up.
And there’s the last of the glow powder.
First imperfect cast…. this far in, I think that’s pretty good! I’m not sure how this happened, except that maybe all of the microbeads and glitter made it so that the resin didn’t make it into all of the parts of the mold. Still, a hole in the forehead is pretty freaking weird, mold-wise. It makes it some sort of like… celestial zombie cat.
Not sure of his fate yet.
