Hello all!

My appologies for not updating after our last two casting sessions. My camera seems to have died and Sarah forgot hers! So we don't have pictures of this particular round.

However things are going good. We've come a long way, and are a lot closer to our goals then we realised. Of course that's before we cast the torso and realised it needed some more sanding before we can make the master mold. But we're still on our way!

We didn't cast this weekend, but casting will begin again on tuesday, so we'll keep you updated on our progress.

Glad you guys are as excited about this as we are!

A day in the life of the mushroom peddlers

Hello hello all! Jess here!

We spent yesterday casting, and things are really progressing! So I thought I'd add a few photographs of our day.

We arrive at the lab, and Sarah is parched!

But after a short break for a drink, we get our things all set up:

Oooo! Sarah has been fiddling with some new ear ideas!

A few false starts, and we have all our molds set up and ready for resin!

Here's Sarah being a mad scientist:

Other highlights for the day included an in depth discussion on Sarah's tendancies to be cruel and sadistic to cardboard. Her repressed memories of her childhood cardboard torturing days, and learning that mold release and tape do not go together.

But we're getting there!

News Flash!

Hi everyone!

We decided to open this blog to show our latest progress on getting The Mushroom Peddler store up and running. Things are going well as we have the layout done and now are going forward with coding everything. We are hoping to have the site up and running within the next month, but as we are both moms of small children it may take a little longer. We will do our best.

Check back soon for limited edition dolls, wings, clothing, and other fun things for ball-jointed-dolls coming soon!

Oh... The official storefront will be at www.TheMushroomPeddler.com

See you soon!
