The resin dried super fast today so I was able to get pictures of these guys. :D
I really, really like these. A lot. Even though the resin bubbled a lot more than it usually does, I was able to manipulate the bubbles to try and form them into bubble nests, which adds a lot to the cups I think. :)
- THE FISH ARE NOT REAL. They are made from polymer clay.
- The water is resin.
- The plants are real leaves and flowers I found in my backyard. The substrate is sand.
- They are in clear glass miniature cups so you can see through the cup at all angles.
- These will be available at Tampa Bay Comic Con (August 1-3). You can commission one once my commissions reopen after Comic Con.
- Please do not keep real betta like this! While these little bowls work fine for fake clay bettas, real bettas need at least 2.5 gallons (5 gallons would be better), a filter, and a heater. Please do your research before buying one of these awesome little fish. :)
This is the best, Bon! I absolutely LOVE the little bubble nests! It was a great idea to turn the bubbling in the resin into that! Gosh I love these!
So beautiful! Using real foliage was inspired.
My friends and I are playing on roll20 and our exploration party just got held up for 5 minutes because one of the party members wanted to take his dog out of the dungeon-y basement and the rest of us were resisting/offering alternate options.
Also the house hates dogs
You know what I really want to read? A fantasy (although other genres would work too) novel where the main character dies in the middle. (Game of Thrones doesn’t count because there aren’t really main characters in that book, just characters who feel like they might potentially have been protagonists had they been in another series.) I want one with all the stereotypical trappings. The book is mostly from his perspective. A country boy with unknown/special parentage who’s called to action. All the trappings. And then in the middle of the book, he dies. Whether from an assassin or during a battle, it doesn’t matter as long as the result is, all that foreshadowing and potential just gets extinguished. And the rest of the book is about all the side characters picking up the pieces. There’ll be viewpoints from back at the farm, with people who don’t know he died or didn’t know what was really going on, shaking their heads saying, it’s a shame that young man left. Villains who rejoice but then are defeated in a more mundane fashion. Mentors who are forced to go way above and beyond just assisting. Rivals who are happy and guilty he’s dead. That’s what I want to read.
