Anyway, that's where this is going. As soon as the dolls are jointed, they're getting painted and I may even buy some permanent varnish....somehow....from someone...y'know. I'll figure it out; that way the paint will take some major damage to make it come off. I'm wondering though if it's possible/practical to buy some big bottles of enamel, like the kind they use on models. I'm curious if adding enamel instead of acrylic to the cold porcelain would result in a more stable cold porcelain. If not, I know that using enamels on the surface will make the paint more stable than acrylics.
Lately I've had a ton of ideas rushing through my head and each idea that I pick to focus on only begets more ideas. First, I wanted to make micro BJDs, but I found that I'm not familiar enough yet with the material to work that small, so I decided to go big and ramp all my characters up to fifteen centimeters. Then I decided that it would be fun/ny, cute and interesting to zoomorphise each of my anthro characters. Then I decided that I need to experiment more with colored clay. And if that wasn't enough, I also then decided that I wanted to then learn how to texturize cold porcelain BJDs. Of course, the ideas didn't stop there. I also decided that with the first set, all done in a flat color, just to learn how to use the CP in the first place, I would paint them.
Let's not forget that I still want to make micro BJDs, and my fan art series is still happening, as well as my own personal novel series.
If I work hard, do you guys think I'll have enough BJDs for stop motion next semester?
So in the end, I should have three or four of each anthro character.
If I make more than one of each Adventure Time character, ummmm, well, okay, I don't think that's going to happen. So there's one worry eliminated. Well, okay, I might decided to infantilize/chibiize them. That would really be the only worry. I want them to be teenaged, like they are on the show. Except Ice King and Tree Trunks (if I adapt her, I don't really like her) and I'm sure there are other characters that I do like and are not teen. Oh, Jake. Jake is supposed to be in his late twenties. I would have to go into my journal to find the other characters that I want to make, but I'm too lazy and I just want to take a nap. I don't have the least idea why in the world I started this blog when all I wanted to do was take a nap, but I've been thinking about these designs all week while I've been busy working and it's just driving me nuts that I feel like I don't have freaking any time to make any of these bloody flipping figures and that's all I want to do but I need the money!!!!! I hate money. Urrrgggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I paint the figures and varnish them somehow, I want to sell them, because really, what in the world am I going to do with a 3D painting? What would I paint on them anyway? I know I'm rubbish at painting. I'm far too impatient. Would I just glob some paint on it? I'm going to have to think of stories that I can paint, or maybe I can come up with some textural designs. I have more thinking to do. If I could sell these figures, omg. That would be the greatest thing. It would get my name out there and my art work out of my room and make more space for more things. Okay, so I think what I want to do is make a couple zomos, a couple painted anthros, and a couple of texturized anthros and zomos, before I email the restaurant or go visit them to see if my work is even appropriate.
Nap time. Finally. Two hours later after I first said nap time.
