At the dftba.com warehouse signing posters and marveling at the hard work by the people who get shirts and posters and jewelry to people around the world.
King Baby says No
I feel like this is my life. lol
What a color scheme. I would have a damn hard time deciding how to paint each section of trim on a Victorian.
OH MY GOD THIS IS BEAUTIFUL
a paint job like this requires high quality paint, a lot of patience and a fuckton of masking tape
Fudge recipe on a headstone
I feel like I should make this just to be able to say a dead person taught me how to make it. Maybe I’ll do it for Halloween.
I desperately hope that she spent her entire life telling people that they could have her fudge recipe “over my dead body.”
That last comment is absolutely worth reblogging.
Completely, so funny.
Russian graphic designer Ruslan Khasonov first became interested in the interaction between oil and water when he was cooking one day and happened to combine soy sauce and olive oil witnessing their separation. More after the jump:

Toothless Bust Update!
I’ve been slowly chipping away at these. I know a lot of you have been asking about these and waiting to see casts. I am getting really close now! The photos above are the first pulls from the molds so they aren’t perfect. I use these first pulls to determine where I need better vents in my molds so that air can properly flow and allow resin to fill all cavities. I mostly had issues with the tips of the ears, but all is easily remedied!
Since my last update, I finished sculpting the busts. I added scales, ear nubs, and did a final clean up pass. Check out how they looked last time!
I’ve been upgrading my molding and casting process. I just bought a vacuum pump and chamber to remove air bubbles from my silicone molds. I am also using methods described in the book, Pop Sculpture, which has streamlined my process so much. I have switched to Mold Max 25 silicone on the recommendation of many of my established toy/collectible industry friends. It is fantastic! Very strong and measuring by weight is SO much easier than by volume.
I also finally put together my own pressure pot, with the help of this Instructables article. This is for removing air bubbles from the casts. Holy COW, I can’t believe the difference. As you can see in the photos about, the casts are flawless (aside from some venting issues I need to fix on the ears). I am blown away and so so so happy! This is going to cut down on my clean up time so much.
Smooth-On recently release Glow Worm additive powders, including a glow-in-the-dark blue. I will be using this stuff on the two angry busts; it should look super cool!
To those interested in purchasing these busts, I will have full information available once I have a final sample to show. These will ONLY be available as full sets of 5. They will be fully painted, mounted, and signed/numbered. Right now, I am planning on a limited edition of 10 sets. I will NOT be selling these as single busts nor will I be selling paint-your-own. This is a fan-art piece and I will not be producing these in a large amount for that very reason. Thank you so much for your understanding on this.

So where are we with mason jars? Are we over it yet?
I thought I was (over it) but this is a clever and easy way to put the things to use that isn’t a chandelier (eyeroll). As a fun little wall organizer in the bathroom, this upgrade is a great way to keep small things from cluttering the bath vanity counter. Meanwhile, mounting in the kitchen lifts your herb garden off the window sill. See the full how-to here via The DIY Playbook. -ts
