...OVERLY STAGED PHOTOS YAY~:dummy:

Some Dishonored Bone charms I've been making :meow: They're cast from polyurethane resin and then hand painted, the original was made from sculpey before making a silicone mould from it. Oh, and they measure around 11cm across and 8cm high (they're probably too small, but whatever!)

I'm pretty happy with how these came out, considering this was my second time doing casting stuff and I'm not that good at sculpting ^^; I'm tempted to try making them again just cause I know how to do a bunch of stuff better now...maybe I'll make like...some runes or something instead...I don't know...

...now I just need to put giant fasteners or pins to the back so they can be worn~:la:

And would anyone be interested in seeing the progress of this? I made sure to take photos while making it.

Heh, I don't really do prop stuff enough to warrant that ^^; thanks though
Learned most of what I did here from more advanced prop makers! ...been a while though so I can't exactly remember which ones :|

Are you by chance selling these? Or open to a bone charm commission xD? I'm an avid cosplayer and am looking to put together a Corvo Attano cosplay and these would make great accessories. No matter what problems you may think they have, I think they look awesome :D

Sorry but I'm not at the moment :( the cost of postage and production I feel is a bit too high when compared with the quality of the product (in order to cover the various costs it would be something like $15-20 per charm, and $15-30 for postage, that would be for an unpainted charm as well).
I have details over here about how I went about making them though :) and thanks!

Aww that sucks xD, darn you must live in a foreign country I'm guessing? I'd die if U.S. postage was that high. Hmm 30 dollars for one charm, actually doesn't sound to bad seeing how good the product looks ^^, but thanks for the link!

Yeah, I live in Australia :ohnoes:
Our postage here goes in blocks, the first covers 0-500g ($15) and the second is 500g-1kg ($30). I remember weighing some charms a while ago and for 3+the box+extra packing it was just over 500g :| I've had to pay for the 1-2kg tier once when my package was like 10g over...and those prices are just for shipping to the US ^^; there are two groups of shipping that are even higher...
Thank you, I'm glad you feel that way ; O ; I probably just focus on the things I want to fix :XD: heh. Well if you plan on having a shot at your own, then I wish you luck!

Aww well, I'd still buy one or two if you were selling but, thank you! They are very cool. I'm sorry Australian postage is so much D:

Sorry for the delay in my reply ^^; I am not currently selling them and don't plan to any more.
The cost of production, time and price which people are willing to pay just don't work out in a way which is efficient.
Shipping is also fairly costly for me especially for countries such as Denmark, and that isn't including the cost of packaging.
So sorry about that :( and thank you :)

Wonderful prop, looks quite perfect. I would have added a bit of a yellow tint to the bone part itself, but it's rather perfect as it is.

Again, amazing work.

Thank you :meow: oh, it actually does have a yellow tint, I did some colour fixing on the image and the purple light sort of washed it out ^^; Thanks again

So where can I order them. ;)

Oooh! actually I should get on that :XD: I've been meaning to set up a store where you can buy them, I just need to be motivated to find out the cost of shipping ^^;
CamKatarn's avatar
Shipping costs wont be that much I guess. Where do they need to be send from? Just make a acceptable price and I buy them for sure! I definitely want to get my hands to add these to my Dishonord cosplay project.

Yeah, it depends whether people would want tracking and whether I can send it in an envelope or if it has to be in a box. They're being sent from Australia, if I can send them in a packed envelope it won't be much at all. I should try and get it all ready, I was hoping to sell some and then use the money to buy more materials so I can finish my second bonecharm model and make more things ^^;
