I have a lot
of orders coming in everyday. I do not have enough figures to
accommodate everyone. I am NO LONGER TAKING ORDERS. However
I will still continue to work on the figures and then either
auction off or email everyone interested and then it will be
on a first come first serve basis. If you'd like to be on
the list to be notified when 1 set will be available, please
email me. Please also let me know you wedding date, or
approx. so I know when to stop notifying you.
Tips and questions answered for creating your own figures:
Q. Do you remove all the paint
from the original figures?
A. No. Marge's body is made
entirely from pink plastic, so removing any wouldn't help. It takes
about 6-7 coats of white paint to cover most of the pink. With the
last coat of pearl paint, you can't see the pink. Homer's blue suit
vanishes under the dark black paint.
Q. What kind of paint do you
A. Acrylic Paints. I've use a
wide variety of brands, and haven't seen much difference in them.
Q. What kind of brushes do you
A. Small ones. The smaller the
better. There are a lot of crevices that you have to put paint into
or on and you don't want to get it all over the rest of the figure.
I use 1/4" brushes to cover the larger areas. I wouldn't use a
larger brush only because people tend to add more paint, which then
causes blobs. Blobs aren't pretty.
Q. Where do you get your
A. I use 3 accessories. 1 ribbon
with flower attached, 1 bunch of flowers, and 1 piece of netting for
the veil. I get all of them at my local craft store. Most larger
chains have a wedding section. I've found all kinds of neat things
that could be added to the figure, like a small string of bead that
look like pearls. You could add them to the veil to make it more
Q. How do you get Marge and
Homer's clothes to be shiny?
A. I use flat paints for the
base of the figures and then I put a pearl coat on Marge's dress,
and a glossy black for the trim of Homer's suit.
Q. I have more questions, can you
answer them for me?
A. Sure drop me a email and I will
respond as soon as I can. Please remember that this is not my full
time job and that I can't answer them immediately.
