SEA PANCAKE COMMISSIONS (Updated 6/17)

**********************************************************************************


The Sea Pancake plushies I make are custom made to order.  They can be made using any color felt currently available to me, whether a realistic flavor or completely random.  If business picks up enough, I'll be able to access a wider variety of colors through Etsy sellers but for the time being, any felt sold at craft and retail stores is what I work with.
Past commission designs can be seen in this folder of my gallery and the previous commission journal as well as the Facebook page.

They currently sell as follows:
Small Pancakes (around 6" from fin tip to fin tip): $15 USD
Large Pancakes (around 9" from fin tip to fin tip): $20 USD

Completion and shipping out takes usually somewhere between 1-2 weeks (depending on my work schedule and anything else I have that comes up).  Shipping outside the U.S. will obviously take a little longer, but thus far I have a 100% success of them getting to where they need to go.  ...*knocks on wood*

I'm also working on selling pre-made small pancakes, with the hope that I can finally open up shop on Etsy.  These pre-made pancakes can be purchased as normal for now (so far I've only been working on buttermilk but chocolate chip and blueberry are also planned), through Paypal or Google Wallet, just send me a note if you're interested.  c:

A few things of note:
:bulletblue: These plushies are hand sewn and are not meant for rough play.  Please handle them gently and avoid getting them dirty as they cannot be easily cleaned.
:bulletblue: I do have a cat, and as cats go he likes to lay on everything.  If you have a cat allergy, let me know ahead of time and I will do my best to clear any dander or fur off of the felt being used.
:bulletred: If for WHATEVER reason you aren't happy with your pancake, I will happily take it back, offer a partial refund (50%) and attempt to resell it.

Payments can be sent to Mitsu_Silverfox(at)yahoo(dot)com via Paypal or Google Wallet.  Work will not start until payment is received, and I can provide progress photos if requested.  c:

Please read THIS before sending payment, it's super duper important (as I don't do shipping stuff through Paypal, it's all through USPS).


Commission inquiries or other questions can be sent via note~
Don't be afraid to contact me!  I'm really nice I promise! ;w;

P.S. I'm also covered in rashes from having to do so much resin-poking, and I don't know how much more of this I can take. ;_;

Burrrrriiiiiii I'm literally in tears over here, it's my 5th batch in a row just destroyed by bubbles. This is the only thing I can do that people will pay for other than commissions, and I think I'd rather start donating bones than consider doing that (I HATE COMMISSIONS although I might just hate them more than usual because I'm in a VERY bad mood)

I'm following every bit of advice anyone has, I put the resin and hardener in hot water before I started, then after I mixed it (SLOWLY, trying not to get bubbles), I put the mixed resin in a bowl of hot water and it cleared up pretty good, but then as soon as I put it on the photo paper, fucking thousands of bubbles.

Here's the best photo I could get of it, and you can't even see the REAL problem, which is in the black part in the middle. It's just COATED with bubbles.

The only thing that kind of worked was going in with a pin and stirring up the bubbles, and then FRYING the pins with a BBQ lighter to get them to pop, but I started to smell the resin getting heated and I don't think that's good for my health and I don't think this is how I should be doing this. It also took over an hour, and I can't babysit each batch for this long, I don't have time for that.

I haven't tried sealing the pins first, but that adds more cost, and I'm already making so little on these compared to labor...I don't know what to do...

help me

Also did you say the brand you use is "Easy Cast"? If so, bad news - that's the brand I'm using already. 

What I'm going to try today is buying disposable plastic cups for mixing in (even though I think the problem develops AFTER I touch the resin to the photo paper), and then after that MAYBE trying a sealer, but right now I'm just hemorrhaging money and I can't keep this up for much longer. ;_;

I'm sorry the resin's being such a bitch, that really sucks ;w;
Sealing the paper might honestly be the best bet, and if you have to raise the prices, you gotta do what you gotta do.  I felt awful at first when I had to raise the prices of my Sea Pancakes, but now I know it was the best way to go and it hasn't effected the amount of business I get negatively at all.
If the sealer works then you might be able to sell more of them quicker as well, and if you go through a site like Etsy (where the fees to have a listing are really low) you could definitely charge more.  I've seen a couple kinds of pins selling there for 7-9$ and that doesn't include shipping costs.
That old addendum of "You have to spend money to make money" is 100% accurate when it comes to crafts.  A lot of trial and error happens and sometimes it can be expensive, but usually in the end it's worth it.

Well, I just tried another batch after buying disposable cups, NEW RESIN (in case it was that), and using the bubble stirring/ torch gun technique, and the results are pretty OK. But I'm 100% convinced now that the bubbles aren't in the resin before it goes onto the pin (that shit was crystal clear!), the bubbles form AS the resin touches the pins, so now I have the culprit, and you have a solution (sealer), and I'm willing to try it. Might have to wait a while since this week looks like it'll be aaaaaall about moving from one house to another, but maybe that will give me time to calm my tits. xD

That torch really does the trick, though - granted, I'm scared of it, and the smell of burning resin when I get too close is just plain awful, but previously I had been blowing on the pins with the hottest breath I could muster, and it worked, but that's where my worst rash came from - I leaned over the pin tray and just got them all stuck to me omfg it was horrible. xD

Question about the sealer though (at this point I feel bad having charged you for the pin, you're more than earning its value in help!!!) : how long does it take to dry? As it is these damned things take 3 days or so. Will that add another day? D;

It can't be helped if that's the case, but I do want to know in advance so I know what I'm in for!

I also think I may somehow be using too little hardener because the past few batches have also come out.....very bendable. xD But I was using a measuring cup! D;
The way I do it now (capfuls!) might help measure that better, though.

Buri you and your thus-far-unnamed resin buddy are life-savers and I'd hug you if I could but I'm all the way over here and also covered in sores. :lmao:

According to a site I found, too much hardener can throw off the resin's ability to dry properly and whatever you made will stay sticky forever, it should still be kept to the ratio on the box.
As far as the sealer goes, you might have to see if you can find any info on the packaging, cause I'm honestly not sure.  :S
I'm glad you're having better luck, though!  PROGRESS 8D
Should maybe invest in an apron though LOL
