Gift Badges by wolfforce58 Gift Badges by wolfforce58
(please pardon the shine...these are laminated, after all, and my camera only works well with the flash on)

So, now that I believe these should all be sent out, here's badges I made for some peoples for the holidays! Not the best things in the world...but...it's the thought that counts?

They're all head-shots of their characters (personas, fursonas, or just random characters they have), laminated and given a hole at the top with a small metal ring so that they may be hung on stuffs.

Umm....being lazy, all characters belong to their respective owners. DO NOT STEAL ANY OF THESE DESIGNS OR I WILL STRANGLE YOU!

I've always wanted to try my hand at making badges. I don't know what I'd charge for them, though; with all the fur detail I put into headshots, they take me forever lol.

You can charge cost of supplies plus an hourly wage (if people complain that your prices are too high, start at minimum wage at a per-hour rate, like you should minimally earn AT LEAST).

Ah, that's a really good plan! I usually try to do some sort of set price on things, but with something like badges, where people might commission you to do very complex characters, this makes a lot more sense.

I have to ask, how well do laminated pictures hold up? It seems like it would be more cost-effective to do that, but I'm a total stickler for things "lasting forever", so I'd be tempted to do it the harder way - make the image, print it out, coat it in protective glaze/tape, make a clay base for it, glue the image on the base, and then coat the whole shebang in clear enamel.

I think it depends on what you use to laminate them (how good the machine is). The one I have isn't so great I would say, so as a badge the edges can start to come up and it will basically peel apart. They're still susceptible to being folded/creased, too. I keep my personal laminated badge inside of a badge holder thing (like what you get at conventions) for extra protection. I also know they are not water tight, lol. I've done other things in the past though when I drew on metal pieces and then went over them with a layer of clear glue, and that protected the drawn image. But a good laminating machine or something professional would be good.

Hehe I'll ask him, then suck up. It's alight! Take your time it's Holidays. If you want to put it aside for later on or even next year that's fine. It's been pretty chaotic for me too to get things done. :(

Haha, that works! XD And I need to ask ya about this paw....since we didn't get the claws, but a paw instead...I...I just don't quite know what I wanna do with it, lol. I fear the dreamcatcher might be too crowded with a face, tail, and paw. BUT, maybe it wouldn't be? Or, maybe I can have the paw up at the top and stuff the arm part of it and add a loop near the fingertips so it's like it holds on to the wall to hang up? XD That's kinda silly though. Or I could have it on the bottom near the tail, instead of the side? Or...or....I DUNNO!

Hehee, maybe it's better if you just kept the paw for your other projects? It might look a bit to busy and I wouldn't want ya ripping claws out of it just so you can use that and not the paw. xD

Perhaps...man, I wish the guy just sent me the claws >.< lol I'd hate to tear the claws out from the paw (it looks so neat!)...but...yeah....don't want an overly-busy dream catcher =/
