Art Idea need opinions!
Ok So I had an Idea.
To make Betta ornaments, Of say different kinds of betta's colors inc. Then sell them on here, to get a few extra bucks to fuel my hobby. That and I don't have a job so it might be nice, to actually have some cash flow.
They would be small, yet not so small they're not worth having. They would be made from clay and paint. Some of which would be Metallic paint. They would be posed in different ways. They also would be modeled after real life betta's. ( Mostly fish posted on the internet)
THEY WOULD NOT BE TANK SAFE! I wouldn't trust anything I made being put in with my precious fishies. I would hope you would feel the same.
Any who, the possible forms this Ornament ( and I use the term loosely) could take are the fallowing.
Xmas tree ornament.
Charm ( for a bracelet inc)
Later down the road, I could possibly add Magnet to the list, and or betta memorials Depending on cash flow and how good they come out.
So I have told you the options.
I could do right now the three Ideas. What would you like to one day have?
Post Xmass for Xmass ornament
post Nick for Nick nack
Post Charm for charm
OR you can post for all three.
Prices would very between the merch, if I did all three. Shipping would also be a factor in it. However it wouldn't be astronomical. I expect shipping to be no more then 7 dollars give or take a few.
Also if sales flew through the roof, I would add more options to the list. Because I would have more cash to make them lol
Those options would be
Betta fish memorials
Betta fish look alikes ( so you forever have the little guy even after he goes)
Maybe even go as far as Jewelry... ( I really am good at making Earrings lol)
Of course I will half to make the first one and post picks to see how far it would go.
But I just wanted to see how you guys think about this idea.
Also some of the proceeds to special items being sold would go to betta rescue groups.
I will tally all posts at next friday on the 26th of this month
