Display stumps are in the shop! http://missmonster.myshopify.com/

I made these cast urethane stumps to display my work at a convention. A few people asked me to make them available for sale so… ok! These are cast in translucent glow in the dark urethane. They are then hand painted with colors that fade from a dark brown to a light translucent color to allow the LEDs to shine through and for the glow pigment to work. Real moss is then added to create a realistic woodland effect!


Each stump is sealed with clear coat to protect the paint and so the color will not rub off on the doll you display on it. Please treat them with care though! If you are displaying a BJD, to take extra precaution about any paint transfer, you may want to lay down a small cloth or other soft barrier between the resin doll and the painted stump surface.

Each stump has a battery powered LED light that does not generate heat. Batteries are easily replaced. Glow in the dark pigment can be charged with UV ( daylight or blacklight) to get the maximum effect.

Please read the listing description carefully for more information!

I do not do custom work.

I reeeeally want one of these!

Look at what my fiance helped me get! It barely fits in our tiny apartment, but he let me get it anyway because he knew it would make me happy. ;o;
I’ll take a better picture once I get all of my dolls in there/it’s daytime!

Have you suddenly discovered the INCREDIBLE world of arts and crafts? Love getting your fingers dirty with some HANDS ON CRAFTING? Don’t forget your PPE!

PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment and is an essential tool in your studio. It is an important investment for your future health and will ensure many years of enjoyable pain free crafting! 

It may seem like a hassle putting on rubber gloves every time you want to clean your airbrush, or finding your mask and goggles when you just want to sand something quickly, but you and your body will thank you for it! When you sand something like resin the particles go into the atmosphere and you inevitably inhale them. Those particles can’t be processed by your lungs, and will stay there. Imagine if you inhaled loads - it gets really dangerous.

Did you know that acetone can cause central nervous system complications and put you in a COMA if you absorb too much into your skin? Short term it causes redness, irritation and dryness of the skin. It’s horrible stuff - but oh so fantastic for cleaning brushes! If you want to use acetone you need to wear a VAPOUR MASK and GLOVES! 

Maybe you don’t use acetone but use some other chemical - how can you find out information about it quickly? Well, usually dangerous materials have warning signs on the side that let you know if they are irritant, flammable, corrosive and lots of other things. You can see all of the warning signs and what they mean here! 

Looking to buy a chemical but want to know how dangerous it is first? Look for the MSDS sheet! MSDS stands for Material Safety Data Sheet, it lets you know what PPE you should wear and what all the risks are. A quick google search of “[material name] msds” should throw up a few .pdfs or webpages. Spend a bit of time reading them and learning HOW to read them - they are important! Some websites that sell chemicals have extra handy links right to the MSDS on the product page! See here, the item, how to buy and the MSDS sheet. Fantastic!

Well I’m slightly worried.There hasn’t been a change in the tracking for my centaur since the 31st of March. Doesn’t it usually say when something’s being shipped overseas? Something else than “processed through sort facility”?I might very well just be paranoid, but I’d like some feedback from people on this.
halp?

USPS tracking isn’t reliable and doesn’t always update after a package leaves the country. Priority Mail International usually takes 6 to 10 days, but it can take longer depending on where you live. You’re at 8 days so I wouldn’t worry just yet. :-)
I hope your centaur arrives soon!!

And you still think it’s okay? Because, oh yeah, you absolutely need this piece of plastic and don’t have the balls it takes to save for it and thus buy stolen property and while you’re at it go a ruin it for everyone else. Brava.

Important!
