A friendly reminder before the updates...
You are NOT allowed to make copies of our products! We have never given permission for anyone to make a mold off any of our products. We hand sculpt everything we offer, and it is ours, not free for the world to reproduce for their own gain. We don't even give permission of people to make molds off of them to use for "personal projects", as that's the same, especially when you start using said personal projects for commissions. That's still making gain off of our hard work, and very unethical and rude. This includes head blanks, claws, jawsets, noses, or anything else we offer in our webstore, past or present.
Back to our updates!
Happy Halloween everyone! We're very sorry that some people did not get their orders before Halloween but we did try to warn that 3 weeks were required for all orders; we've been WAY too busy for any rush orders. Fortunately now that the rush has subsided we should be able to take rush orders again, as long as we don't get bombarded with them! Most orders are going out within 2 weeks now, however we still ask you give us 3 to be on the safe side. Last thing we want to do is promise something and not be able to keep it.
Other exciting news: We've officially moved into our own building! The garage was just...ridiculously crowded. This means we also won't be working where we live, so we may be able to separate our home and work lives now. *gasp* I am still remaining at the house to do all silicone work as well as anything shipping/email-wise. I can't really be around fumes and such, and hate wearing a respirator for 8 hours straight lol.
I've posted up a bunch of new faulty items in the etsy store: www.etsy.com/shop/DreamVisionC… We're also having a sale on all of our grabbag claws; so you get 50 for just $20, where they are normally $1 each; so you essentially get 30 claws for free. x3 Most of the claws really aren't that bad, either. A bit of paint or sanding makes them perfectly good enough to use on practice projects or premades.
If you missed the news before, we are going to be attending MFF this year. We're going to focus on items that aren't as commonly found, so things like ear blanks, foam hooves, cloppers, toes, horns and of course our resin blank kits. There are a lot of people doing pawpads and claws and such now, so it's best to focus on things that people can't buy everywhere. That, and it helps us to focus on what we can in such short time frames. We'll still take some claws/pawpads/noses/jawsets/etc and such, but we're not focusing on those items, since they can be found with other makers too.
We've started teaching our helpers more things off of our own lists for orders, so that way we can focus on other areas. Mono has a few heads in the works for commissions she's going to be busting out soon, and then once those are done she's going to be hitting the sculpting/molds hard. This means lots of new products in the works, and hopefully lots of new products for this upcoming year! Don't ask us what; we have had this ongoing list of things we've been wanting to produce since we started out, and over the years it's just kept growing! She has a few projects already started, and we'll also be going through a lot of older products and refining them to live up to our newer standards. A lot of trial and error has happened over the last 2-3 years which has helped us come out with better molds and therefore better products. Unfortunately some of our older products are still using older molds, so they aren't as pretty as the newer stuff. We hope to get that fixed, so that everything is on the same page.
As always if you have any questions or concerns feel free to e-mail us. I check them every day (weekends are iffy) so you should get an answer fairly quickly. Remember construction questions go to Mono directly there, not here. She doesn't answer as often, but she is much better at giving that sort of advice than me lol. We also plan to expand out tutorial selection, but this too just requires us to have a little more time on our hands, and right now it's just a busy time.
We appreciate your guys' support and patience through everything~!
