Alexjd99's Caps!
« on: Fri, 19 February 2016, 23:09:06 »
Well, a while ago I posted some of my artisans that I began to make. I had zero experience with sculpting, and it took a lot of learning to finally get some designs I was happy with
Original post: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=76847.msg1928446#msg1928446

It's been a long time, and lots of failures, but I finally have a very small amount of caps I can sell. Most of my failures were from bubbles, so I'm pricing caps so that when all of these are sold, I will have enough money to get a pressure pot.

Here are some caps:




What's for sale: All are Topre



The good thing about the failures I had was that most of them were only minor, but I didn't think they were of high enough quality to sell. That being said, I'm going to be putting a few of the failures in with each order for free, because I'd feel too bad throwing them away, and many of them are still functional. (there are also some MX caps in here too)

Here's the stack o' crap


I don't have a date for this sale yet, but it will be soon. I'll post the date ahead of time, and it will be a 24 hour raffle style.

What to expect in the future

I have more designs in my original album as you can tell, and I plan on making molds for these soon. I also have some new designs that I haven't taken pictures of, but one that I'm really excited for has to do with a spicy cock(I think you know what that means)

And as you can expect, I'll have higher quality caps, meaning higher production. I also plan on having specific color ways for each cap, instead of one-offs like these.

I'm still going to have Topre too, and maybe even Alps. I'll definitely include HHKB arrow sets, and possible Topre WASD sets.

I'm more happy to accept any constructive criticism you have, since this is the best way to know what I'm doing wrong and what I'm doing right.

Cool caps! I'll definitely be trying for that black and blue blank. I also like the different-sized modifier caps you made.

Dude these are coming along great since your last post. and cheers for jumping right in to Topre caps as well - Def a bit trickier due to stem length among other factors.

Animal caps make the world a better place! Will we be seeing the Aviator cap in the future?

Yeah, I plan on fixing up the aviator, and making a danger zone color way for it
