An update!

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Okay, long time no speak!

I’ve been away, trying to get my life in order. Mostly this has involved getting an awful lot of loose ends tied up. And I think they’re now sufficiently reduced that I can open my doors again.

Fresh resin is on its way to me!

There will however be a change in the way I do things.

For starters, I’m going to be selling through Etsy from here on. It should make the ordering process a lot easier for folks, and less paperwork for me.

That in turn means I’ll be holding a stock of pre-made horns, and only listing them when available. Not casting to order anymore, so shipping times should come WAY down.

I’m afraid it probably means no more custom colour mixes though. I may open specifically for custom mixes now and then, but it’s not something I’ll be doing via the shop and it’ll likely run a lot pricier than the £5 a pop extra it was.

I’ll be doing a standard colour set of plain, brown and black for the horns and I’ll be aiming to keep one set of each in stock at all times. The black/brown colour wash will likely remain an option.

The fill selection will be changing too. There’s only a few grams difference between regular and hardened foams, so I’ll be switching to using hardened foam exclusively (except maybe on the very largest horns).

Other items will be re-emerging once that’s all set and running. New claws, paw-pads and noses are in the lineup, as well as hopefully a couple more horn varieties including some smooth toony ones.

I hope you’ll spread the word once the shop starts up properly next week! A couple of test items, clearing out old stock bits, will probably go up first.

I hope to earn your patronage once again soon. :)

Temporary closure

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

I’m sorry to say Starborne Works is not currently open for orders.

I’m currently trying to work out a way to stay in business at all, and it is likely this will mean redoing almost everything involved from scratch.

Hopefully I should have better news in the upcoming weeks. Please check back later.

Thankyou for dropping by.

Best wishes,

Sci

Just a heads-up for anyone trying to contact me; I’ll be away from the computer until thursday.

I acknowledge I’ve seriously fallen behind in using this site for updates. Trying to fix that. Excuse me while I fiddle with the plugins a momment..

Twitter Integration

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

I’ve now integrated Twitter Tools into the blog, so there are more options for following updates, and order progress. Daily Digests should take place at 1am, since I often work past midnight! :P
