:omfg: The pipistrelle brooch was made a Daily Deviation today! Zomg! THANK YOU SO MUCH, especially wyrmaster and MyntKat, yaaaaaaaaay :la:

I've been reading and answering all your comments (they have brightened my day considerably! I'm talking blinding light kind of brightening), and I've noticed some questions that get asked frequently. So in an effort to give you detailed answers without much repetitiveness, I'm going to compile them here for your convenience:



~CRETUR FETUR FAQ~


DO YOU SELL THESE?

Yes! I have an Etsy store, Cretur Fetur, right over this way: creturfetur.etsy.com

The average price for a commissioned animal, depending on the level of detail, is about $45. This doesn't mean I can do any commission for $45. Please talk to me first and depending on what you are requesting I will give you an estimate.

But you've caught me at sort of a bad time, DA! All my bats and axolotls and stuff have sold except for the alebrijes, some old hyenas, and ->CUSTOM SPHEREPIGS<-(get some of these!).  And I already have a long list of commissions that I'm trying to churn out before Christmas, so I am full up, commission-wise, until about February.

If you're not in a horrible hurry and would like me to contact you when I free up a commission slot, contact me and let me know! I will not forget you. I promise. However, if you ARE in a horrible hurry and you simply MUST have something that is not very complicated/detailed, contact me. We may be able to work something out!


WHAT IS NEEDLEFELTING?

Needlefelting is a sculptural process that basically consists of poking wool into shape with a specially barbed felting needle. Doing this repeatedly makes the scaly fibers in the wool lock together. It takes approximately a billion trillion wool-pokes and ~6 bloody finger pokes to make a cretur. Here is a super fast time lapse video of Laurie of Woolpets needlefelting a bunny: www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0ycwV…

I also have put together a little page with resources for needlefelting in my own webpage right here: www.creturfetur.com/p/what-is-…


ARE YOU GONNA MAKE MORE BATS?

Yeah, for sure, eventually! I'm also gonna make brooches of other things. These, I think I'll be able to make at least one before Christmas. Staaay tuuuned.


OMG I THOUGHT IT WAS REAL!

That is not a question but I sympathize. Also thank you. :3

I'm going to watch your store to see if you get anymore bats in - I would love having one of those little beauties on my shoulder or hanging on random odds n' ends ^_^

Sorry, a non-brooch bat is in the range of $45-$50. They take me about 10 hours to make. :I
