New boy is up for sale!

I put him up on my etsy and i'll be doing that from now on. :3

Anyway!  Check him out here:

He is imperfect, so the price is lowered to $210.  Normally I wouldn't lower the price this much but there's a chance he could be serious impaired. 

Just copy pasta-ing what i wrote there about his condition:

Here's what happened:

After I finished casting this boy, I found out in the later color casts that the cups I was using to mix the resin in had trace amounts of moisture in them! This caused small sprays of bubbles in random places in the doll. In the white resin it is nearly impossible to see the bubbles, so I don't know if he's okay or not.

Why it matters: The bubbles are lurking just below the surface, so if you sand your doll at all, it could uncover them. If you put a face-up on the doll, the paints and pastels will collect in the bubbles when you remove the face-up and be almost impossible to remove. If you dyed the doll, as this resin should dye pretty well, the dye may collect darker in the bubbles. The bubbles don't affect structural stability in the least bit and I'm fairly certain if you did a whole body paint job, like some of my example dolls, the bubble would be covered and invisible.

Here's what the bubbles look like after i've sanded and rubbed pastels and then removed the pastels from a tan head: http://g36.net/ocdesigns/photos/Sculpting/BubbleHead.jpg

Other than that, he is a perfectly normal machina! He has some filled places where there were normal pinholes(these happen with every doll that is made without a vacuum chamber or other pressure system). most specifically i also filled behind his upper abdomen(you will most likely never see this area) for added strength.
