Now then! I've got something new in my own shop...
its an experiment!
I'm thinking of introducing Soft Shell clams. They are on the small side, and very delicate. Painting on them is like painting on paper. They're usually very even on the surface and often pure white as snow. Just a fantastic paint medium.
Ah but their delicacy... therein lies the rub! I'm afraid the shells might not survive shipping. I pack my shells *very* thoroughly - they're bubble wrapped and stuffed with newspaper so that they're super snug. But I'm a little nervous about these.
Sooooooo I'm holding a little experiment. What does that mean for you? A FREE Shell!
Seriously. Its a little giveaway I'm holding.
That's the shell I'm giving away. This gentleman is a Scottish Terrier, also known as a Scottie. They're tough little dogs, but terribly handsome! You don't have to own a scottie to enjoy their classic look on this handpainted shell :P
This is a shipping experiment. I'm shipping a few of these soft shells to different destinations in order to get a report back on how they fare (the kitty and chihuahua above have already been spoken for and are going to their new homes - the Scottie is a blog special!). Absolutely anybody is eligible to get the shell, as long as you agree to the following guidelines:
If you're interested, convo me on Etsy! First come, first serve. If you have any questions, ask away, I'm open to communication. Have fun!
