I don't know if you're taking suggestions haha but i'd love a purple/black colorway.

Thanks for the update! :thumb:

Little update:

A few new colorways for Dark Atelier:

Frozen Idol (my first doubleshot caps):

200208-0

200222-1


Smokin' Styx (doubleshot as well):

200210-2


Treasure Island:

200212-3

Toxic Waste (Blacklight reactive):

200214-4
200216-5

And my new topre butt:

200218-6
200220-7

You can watch a video of my new topre stem to get a better idea of the satisfying snap fit you get when you mount the cap on the switch, on my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BlCnpP2jFak/?taken-by=dark_atelier

I'm very close to my first sale, still wondering if I should add 1 or 2 other colorways, it will depends on production at this point. The first sale will be pretty small as I made only small batches and spent a lot of time crafting perfect caps (at least as close as possible to my idea of perfection in terms of casting and sanding etc). Each cap will come with a custom yet simple packaging as well as stickers, I really want you guys to have a great experience when you receive the caps  :)

Great work...! It's much appreciated how much work you are putting into polishing every bit of your sculpted pieces. I hope your first sale is successful! Thank you for sharing.
