***EDIT: I fixed the links. I entered them all correctly, they just didn't work. So I changed them and now they should function. :D

I had a super fun time at TAC -> triadanimecon.com hanging out with :iconcubic-factory: even though the convention was small and slow. It was great making new friends and learning how to market for a convention.

I learned a lot about what people want to buy at a convention. I thought I had a good idea of what was popular, but I was only looking at things that I was personally interested in. Now that I have a better concept of what will sell at an artist's table, I have been researching what types of things I want to play with. I keep finding fun and interesting ideas for projects, so I figured I'd list some of the materials that I really want to use at some point.
1) Whipped Cream Clay -> www.artfire.com/ext/shop/produ… - this looks so cool when it's piped out on mini foods.
2) Tamiya Baking Master -> www.tamiya.com/english/deco/ba… - this is specially designed powder to give your miniature things a "baked" look.
3) Liquid Sculpey -> www.sculpey.com/products/clays… - This can be used to bond two pre-baked pieces of clay, create a "wet" look (like liquid in a miniature cup), or can even be baked alone to make window clings!
4) Hearty White Paper Clay -> www.kawaiisupply.com/products/… - I'm interested to see if this is the same thing as my Celluclay -> www.amazon.com/CELLUCLAY-BRIGH… that I already use, or if it's a more precise product.
5) Jumping Clay -> www.ebay.com/itm/JUMPING-CLAY-… - I saw a video on YouTube about this clay, and I think it looks really interesting. I don't know if it's the same thing as Model Magic -> www.crayola.com/products/splas… but it looks cool and fun to play with.
6) Silicone Caulk -> www.dap.com/product_details.as… - All the videos I watched about using silicone as a whipped cream look-alike mentioned this brand. People had very interesting methods of applying the silicone, and very interesting projects that they suggested. I learned it can be tinted with acrylic paint, applied to everything from paper to clay to plastic, and it can be piped like frosting or applied straight out of the container. This is the thing I think I will try to use first (even though I listed it last.)

Another thing, I will be attending almost every convention put on by Nostalgia Conventions -> nostalgiaconventions.com (with the exception of Colossalcon -> colossalcon.com/ although I might go next year.) So far, my con schedule looks like this:
May 24-27: Animazement -> animazement.org/
July 13-15: Anime SouthEast -> animesoutheast.com/
Sept 14-16: Aoi Uma Con -> aoiumacon.com/
Oct 12-14: BanzaiCon -> banzaicon.com/
Dec 8-9: Yama Con -> www.yama-con-tn.com/ (MAYBE)
Jan 4-6; 11-13: Ichibancon -> ichibancon.com/
April (whenever they have it next year): Triad Anime Con -> triadanimecon.com/
June 28-30: Hoshicon -> www.hoshicon.org/ (MAYBE)

I will be volunteering at almost all these conventions, and I might also get an Artist Alley table. I'll try to keep my con schedule up-to-date as I officiate my con participation. :D

Fiona K. Marley
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Fiona Marley (aka, Vero) has a degree in Business and Technology, although she is occasionally artistic. She wishes she could make characters look the same each time she draws them. She hates debating/arguing especially when it has to do with politics. She participates in just about every nerdy game out there (table-top, computer, live-action, console, etc.) She was a guest artist for the comic Polkout for about a month. She is a full time back-waiter and does odd jobs on the side.

If you want to see more art than is listed here, start bugging her to post the pictures she hasn’t gotten around to uploading. She thinks that /d/ is better than all the other boards. Also, she doesn’t afraid of anything. PUDDI.

If I go, I'll probably just stay at my parents' house there in Winston-Salem. Or my friend's apartment. Especially if I have a job there.
