I want a core drill key chain *A*;;;
Just send the money to paypal if you have it with your shipping info. $12+$3=$15
KLJFKLFJSDF. I WANT CORE DRILL EARRINGS!! *__* Would you accept a money order?
Yes. Email me at my sailorditz hotmail account and I'll send you my address. Dangles or just simple posts? I don't have any prepped, but I can get them started while waiting for payment to arrive.
Thankyou! I went through a half dozen incarnations to get one I'm THIS happy with. X3
Can I get a large core drill? The nicer one?

You're the first to claim it, so it's yours! Just send payment to my paypal ($13 total for just the large core drill) with your shipping address and I'll get it right to you.
Question - what are the Gurren Dan logos made from? I'm doing a formal Yoko cosplay for an upcoming ball. I prefer to make my own cosplay jewelry, but yours look very nice! And if it's made from a material I don't usually work with...
I made a base one out of Extrea Firm Sculpey, and after that I got that done and baked, I used this "Amazing Molding Putty" and "Amazing Casting Resin" that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. Yes, that's the brand name.
It took a few tries to get both decent sculpted stuff and then decent molds without any air bubbles or gaps that would mess up the resin when I poured it, but I'm pleased with the results.
There's also dye for the resin (default color is a mostly opaque white once it's done setting) which is where I got the vivid red. (Thus the red Yoko skull from running out of Gurren-dan symbol molds but now wanting to waste the last of the already mixed resin.)
All the "Amazing" stuff is 50/50 mixes of two items.
Could I get one of the red and black Gurrendan logos turned into a cell phone strap? How durable would you say they are?
The whole thing is solid red resin, so if it scrapes, that's the color that will come through. I DO coat them with a clear coat enamel, and the metal fastener is embedded in them.
The charm sized ones are only ready to be earrings but if you'd like I can make a fresh one of and get the PROPER fastener embedded into the resin instead of the thinner thing currently in them for making them into the earrings seen in the picture.
They're as durable as any other plastic charm really. The weakest point is the metal loop that attaches the charm to the strap, but if that happens, the metal loop can be reattached with minimal effort. My personal cell phone strap only slipped through the crack in that loop when I dropped my phone and it caught on something. The plastic fishing line like wire stayed firmly in place. (I can use some other wire to even MORE securely attache the charm to the strap instead of the metal loop if you're REALLY are worried.) These won't break unless some real yanking and intent are involved or some bad accident.
What are the core drill key chains made of? Sculpey, too?
Yes. Everything Core Drill is made out of Sculpey. I have press molds for the one sided stuff, but I still have to fix them up. I intend to make up some molds so can I pour resin, that'd speed things up and I could do more at once, but that hasn't happened, yet.
Can you make me a single, earring-sized core drill? I think my dollfie needs to cosplay!
I actually have one loose already, I just need to clean up the paint job that somehow got smudged while it was drying (or paint the unpainted one that has materialized in my purse). Just send payment to paypal with your order and shipping address.
$5 + $3 = $8.
Wai! I bought a core drill from you at Acen, It's a necklace now
And THANKYOU for that! Acen made me realize how popular making these could be. I'll bring them back next year, well, what I have on hand. I need to look into making more than just GL stuff. ^^;; But why change what still works??
I'm sad missed out getting the shirts some other Artist Alley person--they had the gurren-dan logo on one side, and a core drill 'necklace' printed on the other side. XD
I've only done Acen and Ikasu so far. I usually can't commit to going to a con until last minute, so unless a friend has a table, I can't set up. But I'm going to try and start planning better and set up at a few cons a year.
*prods you to put your want into a paypal transaction* =D
How much would a necklace-sized (like 3 inches big) core drill be?
*is kinda dense, sorry!* :3
I don't have any of those, and I REALLY don't want to make another. I have a love/hate relation ship with those, in that I LOVE how they CAN turn out, but I HATE how much effort it takes to get one to turn out nice enough for me to stop fiddling with it and decide it's done. I'd rather not attempt that again--not even for my own Simon cosplay. I've made several for that and they've all broke in one form or another because of the different techniques I used to make them look EVEN BETTER and fighting to keep something that size made of sculpey from getting squished while sculpting. It's very frustrating and takes a looooooooooooong time since larger size = flaws more easily AND flaws are more easily seen.
There's another guy who made a post here a few months or so ago with NICE resin casted coredrills for $20. Since his aren't individually hand sculpted, you'll probably get better luck with him. (Sorry, I don't remember the username or date of the post.)
I think I want earrings or that barette. BUT I have to wait til the money from one of my own orders comes in.
I have a bad feeling that I have a NPB though.
When you're ready to buy something, just send a payment with the order and I'll get it out ASAP to you. Even if it's weeks from now!
Nice job on the barettes! ^_^
I want a mini core drill cell phone charm so bad *^*
so $13? i will send payment later when i get home~
I want dangly Gurren Lagann flame earrings (with black glasses) if you have any left? :D
Yep, I still have a pair ready. =D
THEY ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE ;__;
THESE ARE AMAZING! I wish I had the money to buy some. D: Create more soon!? 8D I would love to buy some someday! ♥♥♥♥♥♥!
contact me when you have money and I can make what you want if I still don't have one available. I have all the supplies on hand. (Other than pin backs.)
Any drill keychains and mini-drills left? Those look really nifty.
I have a couple of each left. (And a few half finished ones on a tray that needs baked.)
Are the Yoko barettes still available? I'd also like a pair of mini core drill earrings (dangly)! If you still have them, that is! XD;;
I have one yoko barrette that needs a touch up on the paint job and clear coat done to it. And I have a few mini core drills left--though I'm not sure if I have any that match well (early ones that aren't consistant in size or with a different paint job) but I've a few I could paint that ARE consistant in size. =D
Just send payment (10+20+3=33) with what you want and I'll get started on it and mail it out ASAP.
OH GOD THEY LOOK SO AWESOME, I WANT THEM ALL. *grabbyhands*
But since money limits me, I'll just buy a mini core drill phone charm from you. :D
just send payment to the paypal with what you want (in your case it'll be $13) or if you want to snail mail payment, email me (same address as paypal) and I'll give you my address (no cash in mail, too easily stolen that way).
And yay for another customer!
looks like it's been a month since the last comment... but i was wondering if you're still selling. if you are, then i was wondering if you still have a mini core drill and maybe a regular sized core drill keychain. thanks
I have to make more of the keychain ones, and I THINK I still have a mini one, but it needs painting. But if you don't mind waiting, I can get them going for you. =D
Are you still selling? because i was wondering if you still have the yoko skull earrings >> I'm having trouble with paypal at the moment, so I'll notify you when i can actually ask for them and pay, for now I was just wondering if you still had any left...
I'm still selling. =D I can do posts or dangles. And if I can't find any already made, I can easily make some more.
Um, yeah, I was wondering if you were still selling, or had anything left. Cause you know, this stuff is amazing.
I currently have no ready coredrills of any kind. But I do have some of the keychain and mini sizes that just need painted.
Everything else there's pretty much still copies off, or are easy enough to make more once I get a chance. (I've been eaten by work--my last day off was the 20th, and another one isn't come for another week.)
Are you still selling, and can you do clip-on earrings? My ears aren't pierced.
I'm sorry, I don't have the pieces for clip ons. And I think the ones I can find in stores are too big for the pieces I make. ;_;
I could try, but I can't make promises about quality.
