Alpackins for sale in my Etsy, £16.50 + P&P (works out at $32 including shipping for US!)
I've been working on batch processing and getting stuff made fast and efficiently but well! Getting lots of stuff done in a short amount of time means I can keep costs down for you guys
The furkins I uploaded a while ago were a super fast test, but I've had time to tweak and refine and I'm super happy to announce the release of the first furkin creature: Alpackins!
Alpackins are curly furred balls with resin, handpainted alpaca faces and little felt ears. They are about 4" diameter, weigh 100g each and are filled with dried split peas and fluff.
They are handsewn and the original alpaca face was sculpted in polymer clay, then moulded and cast in resin. They have been painted with acrylics and then varnished several times, so they can be dropped and shouldn't scratch, although they are not indestructible. They are a limited run with a maximum of 20 being made, this is the first batch of ten!
A very small run because I made a latex mould for them and it breaks down quickly with rapid cure resin. Latex moulds also mean the resin pull needs more cleanup, so it takes a little more time, but latex is a VAST amount cheaper than silicone!
The hedgehog furkins will be released next but I have to wait for the fur to get here. It's great, the fur is perfect and the little hedgehog face is so cute, you guys are going to love them
