Super cute mini Disney Princess figurines!

Super adorableeeee, I can't stop looking at them! These were purchased from Japan. Based on the auction these figures were not for sale, but were won as a prize or something along the lines of that. I did a search but cannot find anything related to these figures or what these are exactly (gashapon, etc.), so I don't know if there are other princesses available.

Painting acrylic on wood.

So while working on these keychains I took some pictures for my own reference and decided to share on how I paint :)

Basically I start off with a pencil sketch (this particular project is acrylic on wood). Once I have the sketch I want, before I color I use a kneaded eraser to wipe off the excess lead from the sketch just so when I start to color with acrylic it will be easier for me to cover the pencil lines with just a couple of layers instead of many.

I like to start off using the lightest color then gradually add my darker colors and shades after so they can be easily blended together. First I painted the unicorn white, then added some light cerulean blue color on the tips of her wings, which is blended with the base white color.

After that comes the cobalt blue and lavender to pink shades for her hair and tail :) Once the larger painted surface are all finished I go on to work on the little details like the eyes, sparkles on her hair, then some pale pink cheek and outline around the unicorn. I then let it sit out in open air for about half a day or so before I add the final varnish (clear glaze that keeps the acrylic colors together and prevent the keychain to chip and damaged when submerged in water).

And voila! Once the varnish dries it's finished!

Moar keychains!

Working on a custom order and something new for myself :D The unicorn idea started after I purchased a whole bunch of MLP toys for my sister. Seems like ponies are taking over Barbies for the girls her age.

For Sale: Sailor Mercury & Sailor Jupiter SHFiguarts

I bought some extra figures and decided to put them up for sale :) These are brand new and unopened figures of Mercury and Jupiter. The back of Mercury's box have a few paint chips and some tape residue that can't be seen in the picture (you have to touch the box to feel it). The side of Jupiter's box have a small bend/crease on the lower right corner.

$50 shipped for each from Taiwan. I will use Registered Airmail that takes 2-3 weeks and will include tracking & insurance. To buy both figures I'll give a discount for a total of $80 shipped :)

Feel free to comment or send me an email if you are interested!

Sailor Saturn SHFiguarts

Sailor Saturn figure <3 Yellow sticker is Bandai Japan (purchased from CD Japan), and silver sticker is Bandai Asian version (purchased from Ruten for around $30usd)
Nothing is different between the Bandai Japan and Bandai Asia other than the stickers plastered all over the box of the Bandai Asian version- safety hazards, HK license, etc….  For collectors they probably prefer the Japan version. But for hose that wishes to buy cheaper the asia version is the one to go for :)
