My etsy shop just went online! I’ve only got 3 items in there for now, but will be uploading more by and by. It would mean the world to me if you could check it out! If you’re interested in buying a specific piece, you can absolutely message me and if it’s still available, I’ll create a custom listing for you!
Tavarua island pin

I somewhat stumbled upon earth day (I COULD say THIS year, but it happens to me every year. Same thing with birthdays... ) and I knew I wanted to sculpt Tavarua, the heart-shaped island in Fiji.

It was a very quick sculpt that was easy to make a “big” number of. I started off with a modelling sand I got a while ago, mixed with a little bit of white glue, painted it with acrylics to imitate grass and then stuck some fake moss on for the trees. The sea was the hardest part; I played around a lot with it until I found a technique for creating a gradient I was actually happy with. Once that was done I glazed my sea and then put on a bit of white acrylic in the shape of the island in order to imitate the waves crushing on the shore. At that point I decided that the overall look of it didn’t fill the globe out as well as I thought it would, so I added the rainbow, which I think works really well.

On another whim I decided that since I managed to actually finish these for earth day I wanted to use them as the first items in my shop. The major things are up and running, I initially wanted to have a really set assortment of goods and more plans and stuff but I wanted to rid myself of that specific pressure in favour of having development and seeing where things will be going and see which items will sell and which won’t. So, if you’d like to purchase this little island (I got them as a pin  and as a bracelet and a pendant too, which went up today since I needed to get pics with decent lighting)

you can do so here. I will be putting a few of my other pieces as well, sort of by and by and if you see anything in my gallery that you would like to call your own, you can definitely send me a note and if it’s still available, I can put it up for you.

cast brass donut
I’m very sorry for not having posted anything in such a long time, I’ve been feeling off for various reasons most of which I don’t want to elaborate on, which jammed me up a bit creatively. The one thing I did finish up is this cast brass donut, a test run for a few other little pieces I want to have made into pendants.

If you want to read more about it, check out my tumblr.

businesscard picture

Today’s picture is just going to be a picture I intend to use for my business cards (it’s also a work of progress picture of my mascot, the dragoncat; more to that another time) which is the second shot of me working on businesscards (this year), the first one of which I loved very very much, but unfortunately it didn’t hold up to the print, it was too fine and had too many little details that you couldn’t recognise unless you knew perfectly well what they were.

I’m really happy with this composition though, I think it conveys the handmade quality of my items very much and my joy of making things. I scheduled a shoot for Sunday (which is just a fancy way of saying that I asked my partner really nicely if he could take a bit of time from HIS busy schedule and help me with this) but I kinda really like this picture already. It is flawed, imperfect and improvised, it was made with a camera propped up on books while my phone was on selfie mode so I could see which pictures the camera would take and I have a zit on my chin but all of that makes it feel real and personal and still somewhat spur of the moment, which is a lot of the things I want this to be about. Because this is me. And that’s how I roll.

:iconqueenofeagles: kindly added me to her art feature, now I have the pleasure of launching my own!

*I just copy-pasted the rules from her journal*

The idea is simple: 

Comment on this journal and if you are among the first 20 persons, I´ll give you a feature here, showing off the three deviations in your gallery I like most.

The second condition is, that you in turn submit a journal like this and give me a slot.


'The idea is not to get a free feature, but spread the art around to everyone on DA to enjoy and love!

asa-baijan's Profile Picture
asa-baijan
Germany
My name is Astrid and I’m one of those 20-somethings who happily refuse to grow up.
My CV consists of many things that seem unrelated: I went to a bilingual language school, then to an art school, studied German (wrote my Thesis on memes) was an aupair and now work in retail.
What has been consistent is my love for creating.
The main aspiration of my work is to make things that enchant people. I love the thought that someone who has a piece I made falls in love with it over and over again every time they look at it.
I also love to create fanart. A very dear friend of mine (taco-yaki.deviantart.com) honored every movie, every anime, every book he finished (and liked) with an artwork. And I found that sort fascinating and very honorary to the original piece that one invests time and effort into making their own interpretation of it.
But I am, first and foremost, a dreamer. I have dreamt as long as I can remember and will continue to do so as long as I can. And I dream that one day I will be able to make a living with my art. And I very much hope to achieve that goal.
Currently I live in Berlin, though I’m very much an Austrian girl still.
