In winter 2020, I'm opening an Etsy store with animal-shaped, fairy-lit-lamps, cast with glitter-filled resin. I make lamps with 2-part epoxy and UV resin as a stim.
Stimming, or self-stimulatory behavior, calms autistic people. I love visual stims, like tiny lights catching glitter; but lampmaking is also a tactile stim: the textures of the molds, decoratives, and pigments make me happy.
I make hedgehog lamps when brainstorming the Fanfictionist series. Hedgehog lamps come with USB-powered blue fairy-lights. Magical power outlet also included.
I make cat lamps when brainstorming American Catseye, as well as its sequel, Worlds They Dream. Cat lamps come with USB-powered pearl fairy-lights. Magical power outlet also included.
I make faerie lamps when brainstorming A Shapeshifter, Cyborg, & Wisp. Fey lamps come with wind-powered fairy-lights.
I make geometric lamps while brainstorming the Emergence series. Geometric lamps come with rainbow fairy-lights and coin battery power. Miniature screwdriver and extra batteries included.
