Rattler - 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 Rattler features a generous curve and small tip tapering down into a filling shaft that narrows only slightly before its lippy base. Pointed upward, it can find spots and pinpoint massages to the areas you desire; pointed down, its curve applies considerable pressure to whatever wall it is pushed against. Its plates offer a small amount of texture and are tapered on their undersides for gentle extraction and the base is good for applying external pressure as well as shaped for easy handling. A shiny surface pitted with all sorts of speckles and lines offer a finish that is fleshy and not horrendously grabby. Its tip has an open meatus that spreads apart along the back to expose vertical threading of muscle, and cracks and wrinkles in and around the plating complete a weathered, brash demon.
I am proud to showcase this very detailed revision of the original Rattler. Its base is smaller however still shaped for great grip, its useable length is longer while the curve has been toned down slightly, and otherwise all those damn details are just...sexy.
