Ministang - Marbled March
This model was discontinued in 2018 and its last chance availability for order is now!
March is my birth month, and as has been the last five years of tradition, I am offering made-to-order toys in marbles! For a 2 color marble you can tell me the colors you'd like, or you let me know a color that you would like and I'll choose another/other contrasting tone(s) that I feel fit. Just this listing will net you a 2 color marble or "Spring Forward," which is a new special to celebrate spring: features a pour of super translucent pastels of shimmery pink-gold, green, and indigo - marbled with a sparkly white that is imbued with threading of matte white.
Other marble types can be found and added on from "The Specialty Marble Type Listing"
Marbled March blog post containing all the information is here.
When you checkout please include the following in the note:
-(completely optional) Tell me a little about yourself! tidbits or fun facts.
-Your preferred firmness. Sorry I cannot add this as a drop-down due to the inability to set a single quantity for a listing with variations. Firmnesses available on this model are bolded below.
-Your preferred color(s)! (With the exception of Spring Forward as it is already decided).
-A color that you do not like/want, so I can exclude it from your pour (again, with the exception of Spring Forward)
Firmnesses available on this model: super soft (0030), soft (0050), medium (~8A), hard (10A)
Some things to keep in mind:
-Quantities will be replenished only once the queue of a model has been worked through.
-Super Soft has a tendency to create very blended pours and pours that are very imbalanced, ie may represent only one color on a side of a toy. This is exacerbated with shimmery pigments.
-Shimmers will also come out more feathery
-I am one chronically ill person. I hope to have these shipped out within two months of ordering, but I simply cannot provide you an exact time frame. Marbled March is historically fraught with delays. There will be delays. Expect delays.
Short, thin, but defined with a spaded head and minor bumps, the Ministang is a great toy for those looking for something smaller or introductory.
This toy has been a staple of the shop since the start of 2013 and has only seen one update to its model. It is very petite, travel/pocket sized and priced low for those who want to get a good feel for my work and silicone prior to any larger purchases.
