Because I am traveling again this summer FOE Store & Gallery will be handling my handmade resin toys. I shipped a giant box of over a years worth of art work to Jim at FOE. I sent a ton of stuff, like the very popular 5 inch Kaijina the Bug Girl toys in various colorways. Also at FOE are my 5 inch “Big G.E.A.C.” toys named Sgt. Wilbur because everyone needs a big pig with a gun.
I am moving from California back to Maine to work further on my Mythological Maine series called Yupapotamus Pond. FOE has a couple play sets, and one is glow in the dark! Each set has a Yupapotamus, Swamp Bogger, and a Philly Lou Bird that are characters from old logging stories my grandfather used to tell me as a child growing up in Maine. The characters are old Americana from the North East, and many folk of the older generation know the tales of these and other strange critters that go bump in the night. My move to Maine is to work further on my research on these old stories. This project means a lot to me, and is very near and dear to my heart. For some reason it is so important to me to keep these stories alive, and I need to be back in Maine to do it proper justice. Each play set also has a Swamp Bogger necklace and comics!
Also in that mighty JEMTOY box are GID Gompers, new G.E.A.C.s, some way cool two toned opaque/clear Stompin’ Gompers, and a bunch of other surprises. It will take them a while to photograph and get all of it up on their web site, so if you are interested in purchasing any of these items contact the folk at FOE and swing a deal or click here to see what JEMTOYs are available at the ShopFOE.com site. Even better, if you are in the Northampton, Massachusetts area drop by and have a look first hand. Ask Jim or Nicole if you can see the JEMTOY box before the best stuff is gone.
I have a feeling it’s gonna be a great summer.
Thanks again for your interest and support, J.E.Moores.
The Yupapotami are keen to learn how to make resin toys. Check out the new book by J.E.Moores titled: How To Make Resin Toys and learn about Glove Molds, Putty Molds, Block Molds, Silicone Rubber, Urethane Plastic, finishing, painting, containing and displaying hand made resin toys. You can also watch my instructional videos: How To Make Resin Toys to see some of these techniques in action.
Here are the new Yupapotamus tee shirts in several styles and colors, in both child and adult sizes at the cafepress JEMSTORE.
Black Rub is a technique where you toothbrush black acrylic paint onto a resin toy, then use a damp paper towel to clean it off. Black paint stays in the deep areas showing off the details of your resin toy. Black Rub gives the toy an old fashioned look, like an old antique toy whose paint is worn off in places. Be sure to wear latex or vinyl gloves to keep your hands from getting messy. All this information and more is found in my book, How To Make Resin Toys by J.E.Moores.
