Tentacle - Marbled March
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.
The Tentacle is a revision of my original Tiny Tentacle. It's a pretty sucker filled tentacle that wraps around itself on the base: with a detailed edge separating the glossy back and textured front. The suckers are now rounder and gentler overall, and the raised surface around them makes them extremely comfortable in use. The detail based texture is still very notable, and may be too intense for some. Additionally, it is rather noisy in use. Its bulge has increased in size and can create a very temporary lock depending on one's anatomy. Suckers trail around the base, inspired by the Small Cephalopod and Tentacoil, making the base visually appealing and allowing for tactile feedback to hands.
It is larger than the original Tiny Tentacle in every way, and is more an "average" size now.
Total length: 6" / 15.25cm
Useable: 5" / 12.7cm
Tip: .75" / 1.9cm
Bulge: 1.75" / 4.4cm
Underneath Bulge: 1.25" / 3.2cm
Narrowest Circumference: 2.5" / 6.35cm
Girthiest Circumference: 5.25" / 13.33cm
Base diameter: 2.5-2.75" / 6.35-7cm
As each toy is hand cast in platinum cure silicone and my molds are also hand made, there may be some slight variances in measurements.
