Nyan Cat--Poptart Cat--Charm by QuoteCentric Nyan Cat--Poptart Cat--Charm by QuoteCentric
I fear I have just unleashed great evil upon the world....
I'm encouraging an internet meme. The horror! :iconlawooplz:

Don't know what the Nyan Cat is? Click here: [link]

Yes, I made this little guy by hand. He's flawed, quite flawed. The stars aren't right, and just look at the nose (I tired to get that little nose he has in the original vid next to his mouth, but couldn't quite get it right). And, the blue background isn't as straight as it could be.

Oh well, not bad for a first try. :meow:

And, I'm thinking of offering these guys at my Etsy shop for $7.50 (plus shipping). I know that seems a bit much, but this guy was a lot harder than my usual minions. Besides the black on the face (sharpie marker), all that you see is made of clay. It required two bakings to get it perfect, and you can see how small he is.

Sigh, I really should be working on my fic. Why am I not writing?!

:iconmeawplz:

This little guy is now an entry into Free PM's contest folder: [link]

It's cute! :D I think worth more than $7.50 though for all that work. :(

Thanks! :floating:

And, yeah. But, I try to keep my costs low because it gets more attention that way. A lot of people get turned off to stuff the closer the price gets to the $10 mark. :nod:

That's actually opposite of what I've found, haha. I made polymer clay items too and I used to think having the lowest prices possible was the best way to get things sold, but you don't attract long-term and loyal buyers that way. You don't want people to think your goodies are priced cheap because the quality is cheap, and usually when prices are low people think that. :( You'd be surprised how many people WON'T buy something because it's under $10, and they think it'll just fall apart.

Good point! :D

I've actually had quite a few customers for my minions (back when that movie was still popular), some of them repeats. I guess I price my stuff lower because 1. I'm still new to this, and, 2. I don't have much money myself, so I know how it feels to find a good bargain. I live in a part of the US where people can't spend a lot of money on fun and/or custom things. So, I've sort of kept that mentality in mind. :)

I might up my cost a little bit. Thanks for the input! :meow:

Oh trust me I understand, I'm still in my first year of doing this and initially I did very cheap prices because I thought "well I like things cheap, so I should sell cheap" but I actually sold more items once I raised the prices, haha. It takes a lot of trial/error to find the perfect prices, and even then people will still complain that it's too expensive, but people will complain that a lot of things are too expensive and that doesn't mean the prices will immediately lower for them. You just have to be mighty and explain to them the reasons the price is how it is, and hopefully they'll understand or even be impressed and say they didn't know those details before. I've had people whine about a price, then when I explained the price to them, they've actually bought the item. xD So it's good to stand by your choices too!

And I think for something like this I would charge at least $10 once you worked out the kinks. :9 It has a lot of detail for something so small!

Well, I'll make a few more up (got two more so far!) and post them on my Esty shop for around 10 and see what happens. I'll also try to explain in my description why--because these little guys are quite a bit tougher than my usual stuff. Wish me luck!

Thanks for the complement! To tell the truth, I hadn't realized it was so tiny till later. I just knew it needed it to be light, free of sharp edges, and the size of a typical key chain or charm....then I held a penny up to it, and I was like, "...huh?!"

Well, do you have a Paypal account? I could sell you one. It doesn't have to be this one if you would rather I try to make another one.
I live in the US, but I don't mind mailing to your country if you don't mind paying a little more for shipping.

Keep in mind, if you're not comfortable doing this, you don't have to. You don't have to buy if you don't want to. :nod:
