I wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. I hope everyone celebrates traditions with friends and family nearest and dearest to them. <3

I decided to stuff my friend Key into a stocking for myself for Christmas because friends & family are the best gifts to have close during the holidays. ^_^

Also unfortunately i only draw digital in my home, so my handmade materials where reduced to a regular pen and paper xD didn't even own a pencil to sketch it. anyways i hope this is of your liking.

Thanks and good luck to all competing ^^

SNOW GLOBE OR OH NO GLOBE?
IGN: Num

I was inspired by my love of our newer snowglobe decor and our annual plushie snowman spam
(side note/cheap plug- I see we have the full set of plain seasonal snowglobes, and 1 with a plushie morpheus in it. Wouldn't it be nice if we had 1 with rangora, maybe a yata and the last with a greenman, you know to complete that set too?)

inspiration.png

I started out making some modeling clay. Knowing it would take a few days to dry solidly enough to be submerged in water and not completely fall apart, I made a few different sizes and shapes to try out inside the globe, with the tree, to find the one that balanced the best.

Then I wanted the base to be painted a color close to, but not exactly matching, the snowman, to make both colors pop a little better, rather than blurring together.

The glitter water was a fiasco from the start. The first 2 glitters I had were too light, so they floated on top of the water rather than falling through it. I found some heavier, metallic snowflake glitter that worked better. Even after testing to make sure the liquid was thick enough to make the glitter float down, I was super nervous about filling the globe and giving it a try.

The calm before the storm, taken just before filling the globe with the glitter water

Sadly, my fears were not unfounded. Despite the tests, it failed in a way I was not expecting, but luckily in a way that did not end up with having a liter of glitter water all over my floor! The glitter decided to stick to the dome of the globe. To try to get it off, I shook the globe somewhat vigorously, which caused a small leak in the seal, and the water became aerated and cloudy. To prevent the slow leak from becoming an issue, I had to let the globe rest upside down while the bubbles cleared out of the water, which of course led to the glitter sticking to the dome of the globe again. I have some video in which there is a lot of cursing, but was unable to grab any pics of the glitter floating down in which there weren't human hands or curious cat heads blocking the shot.

I have since drained the water and have the bits drying out. I am off to the store today to see if I can find glitter that will behave better. If I am able to attempt another filling, I will update this post.

While it may not have worked out in the end (yet) I had a great time trying a new craft, and hopefully will have greater success next time... especially if I have more inspiration from more snowglobes in game hint hint wink wink nudge nudge.

Update: I wasn't able to make it all work in time. Who would have thought the glitter in snow globes would be so temperamental! Regardless, I felt my little creation deserved one last glamor shot. If the snowflake glitter insisted on sticking to the glass, then I was going to let it, and we can all please just pretend there is water in the globe and the snowflakes are falling, right? As a christmas present to me? Thank you!

(I tried to make a version of this little tree decor)
I made a little video so you can see the lights flashing
I almost gave up making this tree cause the branches kept falling
and at some point assembling them was a pain x.x but I did it!
Im glad I didnt give up and I liked the result ❤️
Its always fun to participate!
