I give customers the option of phone straps, keychains, or earring hooks at conventions. :3

ahh i see, so do you mean that for instance, if they wanted an item for a phone strap, you put attach it to the strap, or do you have a bunch of each kind?
sorry if i keep asking you stuff, its just that you are an amaing clay artist, and im hoping to sell my crafts at a con someday too, so im trying to learn things that experienced sellers do:D

I have all the straps/keychains/hooks with me laid out, and I attach them with pliers while they're there. xP

ahhh i see! thats nice, because it allows the ppl to choose what they want their clay piece on :D

and do you use any specific type of glue to secure the eyepins in the clay, because crazy glue doesnt hold at all :p

Well,honestly I douse crazy glue. XD Or a small amount of Gorilla Glue. Though of course I put the wire very deep in the clay.

Lol, i may consider using Gorilla Glue, because whenever I use crazy glue, it come out, even when I push the wire really far down :p

Also, I always love how the background of your pictures are related to your polymer clay chibis! Do you just print out the image, and then use that as a backgroud? Again, I really appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions, it means so much to me :iconbunnyloveplz:

It's no problem! I don't mind answering questions at all, I enjoy it. ^^ (Just not if it's the same questions over and over, but this isn't, and that's why I'm making myself an FAQ soon hehe XD)

I like Gorilla Glue a lot, but it's very liquidy, so be careful with it. You only need a very little bit, smeared around the pin with a toothpick. Do you do the hooks like I do (with the wire going in twice to make a loop), or just once, and making a circle of wire? I've never tried the latter, and that may be your problem. (Also, be careful when pushing the wire REALLY far down. My charms heads have cracked in half in the oven before. ;____; )

Yeah, I actually have an entire folder of various googled backgrounds printed out. XD So much computer ink used! I always just make sure they're images from the show/series itself, and not someone else's fanart or artwork without permission. ^^
