Maybe small batches of specific colors of grabbag batches. As they sell out I can paint more. It is just more work for Susie. If I end up doing this she will require more chocolate and frogs for her effort.August 19, 2021 at 11:47 am #1646197

I have a pond. I can supply all the frogs she wants. 🤣August 19, 2021 at 1:15 pm #1646213JadeParticipant
From the comments about how to sell these:
Melody says that Susie didn’t like the “Special” section of the store – “Susie didn’t like doing that. She had to go through the ordeal of entering each individual item. Our website store isn’t designed well for that sort of thing. Too cumbersome. ( no worse than putting them individually on eBay, but eBay stuff usually goes for more $)”
Maybe a modified grab bag – Melody says, “I’m thinking of having grouped grabbags, like all tigers but slightly individualized, like the babies. But still, then people will get a red tiger and want a silver tiger… hmm”
There were some other ideas as well, such as a raffle or voting on the colors to be painted, but a grab bag seems likely.
I mean, to be fair on the grab bag idea, I personally say do things in whatever way makes it easier for you guys – we can do the trading and that kind of thing if we want something else which tends to work out pretty swimmingly for most of us? Just a thought.August 19, 2021 at 1:36 pm #1646217AsterisktrineParticipant
All I know is I ADORE the mother hippogriff. It’s such a pretty sculpt. Selling specific color categories sounds cool but anything you guys come up with for selling them will be awesome.August 20, 2021 at 8:59 am #1646255
From Melody’s Facebook page – more information about the mother hippogriff, two more hippogriff photos, and a first test paint qi-lin.
A question was asked – “How many were cast? How many were you thinking of painting? So far they look amazing but each one must take a week!
They are almost size of mother unicorn? Or smaller?
Those mamma unicorns are heavy!”
Melody’s reply – “She weighs as about as much as the mother unicorn, but is longer, so would take a bigger box. I don’t know how many I’ll paint myself, but once I get it figured out, they may not take too long. I’m depending on stenciling the feather markings. Right now they are still being difficult, but I’ve learned that this is true with most new things, especially ones with wings.”
“Tiger mother hipp from non-display side. Her chicken feathers are color shift blue with brown paint over it to give it a slight metallic shine.”
“Chicken dapple non display side” Melody says that the feather part is based on a Golden Sebright chicken.
And the test paint qi-lin. Melody says, “Test paint qi-lin. This paint job is a mess, most test paints I do are … This kind of test paint is done to see where the sculpture needs fixing before we make lots. It is different from what we call “test paints” on eBay. We call any experimental color a “test paint” because we may produce more if people like it a lot.”
Melody confirmed that the qi-lin will be a production piece (not PYO).
From the comments – “Love! Now a standing or rearing buddy is needed…my weird brain loves pairs or even numbers of pieces.”
Melody’s reply – “of course”August 20, 2021 at 6:03 pm #1646270Ela_HaraParticipant
Ah Man! I wish the Qi-Lin was a future PYO! I’d love to paint an army of them! ^_^

From Melody’s Facebook page:
Melody says, “Male hippogriff sketch. As usual, I’m trying to straddle the line between majestic and dopey so he fits with the rest of the Windstone line.”
From the comments – “Just a curious question. Why are the males always sitting and the females are always laying down?”
Melody’s reply – “Mothers get really tired”August 24, 2021 at 6:51 am #1646412August 24, 2021 at 7:50 am #1646416Ela_HaraParticipant
