Had an awesome birthday! Got to open my @doubleparlour Bahnee from Lulubell Toys, and was so pleased with it! It has such a great glow and succeeded in creeping everyone out. I also got two tickets to see Demetri Martin in May, some new clay and tools,  and some @smoothon resin and silicone on the way! Best birthday EVER. #toylife @luluamy #birthday #designertoy #designertoys #vinyltoy #vinyltoys

Well, it’s officially the 18th, my 24th birthday! In addition to the lovely set of clay tools I’ve been using (as an early gift!), my boyfriend got me my own Little Misfortune Cat Blind Box! Ended up getting the monochrome black one, which I absolutely adore. I’m so lucky to have such a thoughtful person in my life, and at the end of the day, that’s the best gift of all. #birthday #misfortunecat #designertoy #designertoys

Doodling disturbing demons (and one adorable little Stolas) during class. Trying to get ideas for demons from my weird little story universe on paper… I’ve only done thinking to adapt the original characters I made during my teenage years into one universe, so it’s satisfying to actually draw some things. #doodle #drawing #demons #originalcharacter #nightmarefodder

That’s all for the night, got the muzzle length where I want it to be and added more to the jowls. Couldn’t resist putting a little pouty lip either. I have to say, sculpting is a lot tougher than I thought it was going to be… It’s difficult to remember that it’s both an additive and subtractive process, and getting both sides to loo the same when making something somewhat symmetrical can be a pain in the ass. Guess it’s all a learning process. #pitbull #supersculpey #sculpting #sculpture #sculptartkickstart #vinyltoy #vinyltoys #designertoy #designertoys #customtoy #customtoys

Any resin-casters have any recommendations about what brand I should buy? I’ve looked at Smooth-On but the gallon packs are pretty pricey, and the trial sizes aren’t too great a value for the amount you’re getting. Our local craft place has expensive stuff for jewelry casting only. What I’m looking for is silicone that will allow me to make at least 10 pulls from a mold, and I’m fine with opaque resin. Hope you guys can help me out with suggestions. #resin #resincasting #moldmaking #resintoy #resintoys #resinart

I might just be a little bit obsessed… This is my grail, Rangeas by T9G. I absolutely love the GID Tan, but hell, I’d be lucky to get any painted Rangeas. He’s one expensive bastard, but he’s tons of fun to draw, at least. #rangeas #doodle #japanesevinyl #kaiju #t9g #markers #drawing #vinyltoy #vinyltoys #designertoy #designertoys

Day 8: I feel horrible. Unfortunately being in two-cat home with a cat allergy has finally caught up with me. Haven’t been able to do anything except sleep today. Now that I’ve slept for 14 hours, I’m wide awake and in pain. Thought I’d make some bracelets so I have at least something to show for these past few days… I’d much rather be sculpting, but I’m much too tired. #bracelet #bracelets #beading #uvbeads #jewelry #allergies #catsarecutebutevil

Day 6: Too tired to work more on the pittie, so I put together a bracelet while watching some TV. The three white beads on each side are actually UV beads in purple/yellow/purple. Going to take a photo of it in the sun tomorrow. Love how I’m finally getting work done! It’s amazing what a stress-free environment can do. #bracelet #uvbeads #jewelry #kandi #plasticbeads #glassbeads #seedbeads

Day 6: Finally getting somewhere! Going to bake him and then work more on the nose and jowls. Though he looks good from this angle, I don’t have the side view of the muzzle where I want it to be. #pitbull #designertoy #designertoys #resintoy #resintoys #sculpting #sculpture #supersculpey #doggie
