It’s been a little while since I posted on the old WWW.ClaudeRaymondDesign.com page so let’s do a quick update..
Just had a great, fun filled 5 days in Columbus Ohio at Origins Game Faire.. I normally go to this Convention with my friends every year and spend 5 days playing RPG games all day long. I do take some time off in the afternoons.
This year I took the challenge of an artist booth and it would not have been possible without a great group of friends supporting me.
I’m not sure how the folks that run games do so without losing their voices .. After 2 days of talking to people for 8 hours straight I was losing my voice and my friend (chris) helping me at the booth did loose hers. I was able to make it thru my Friday “How to make a goblin head trophy plaque” class without a coughing fit and everyone seemed to have a great time at the class.
Up Next for me is a visit to the Oddmalls Back Yard Bash on Friday July 8th and Saturday July 9th. This will be my first outdoor show so stop on by and see me dealing with the heat…. It won’t be pretty.
I’m still figuring out when I’ll be doing my next Malted Meeple “how to” class and if you are a Gamer and attending Con on the Cob you will be able to sign up and take my class there in November.
Project update time…
I’m currently building a “largish” Black Dragon Trophy bust and shooting to have it finished by the end of July. As I work on the dragon I’m working on my Earth Elemental Head project. Its about a foot and a half tall with a light inside to make its eyes glow. I’m trying to finish these both by the end of July so I can move on to another large project.. A baby Griffon Puppet to wear at shows.
I’m working on some additional items to cast and sell at a price point for the non-collector. By the end of the month I should be molding Goblin Face Pendants, a Dragon tooth with a carved Eye in the root as well as a smurf head that I will be able to mold and cast and keep at the price point I now have for them.
I should also have a second Fairy Dragon finished and ready for molding.
we shall see if I can keep to my target dates on these.
I’ll also have a gift box Dragon Egg finished shortly and I’m going to have to start on some new Bonsai Tree Ents since I’m down to my last one there.
I have to get to casting more fairy dragon hair clips and magnets.. they sold well at Origins and I’m down to only 3 in both categories…
One last note… I’m working on taking photos and getting listing up on my store here on the site. I have a large TO DO list and I’m trying my best to get things done.
Thanks again to all that found me at Origins .. Looking forward to next year..
Feel free to send me a message with any questions you may have… and thanks for finding my site.
