I really need extra money and have been thinking of selling some stuff I have been making, mostly stud earrings. I need opinions on whether you would buy these, how much would you pay, how they look like to you and if you would get them for a friend or family member,
I have never used etsy before, tell me what I need to know before I start please ><
Besides these, I am making some mushrooms, stars, and thats all I have so far :3
Etsy is kind of crowded with the things you want to sell. But as someone said you need to work on your sculpting and painting before you're ready to sell, it's still quite messy. Practice and always ask opinions is the best to become a better crafter. Good luck!
Whatever you do, stay away from copyrighted material! You WILL get sued. A grad student at my school made something with copyrighted Disney material for his grad show, and he was sued, and had to pay thousands in fines and court fees. If you are selling it, make sure you aren't stealing designs. Big companies are really cracking down on the little guy when it comes to that stuff. If you want a superhero, design an original one.
well, only someone reeeeally dumb would mess with Disney. That's all I'm saying: pick your battles, and stay away from the companies that OWN america.
As for Etsy- try selling at Cons first! make an etsy, and hand out business cards at Conventions. THEN post some items to Etsy. You need to take much, much better pictures. Blank piece of fabric background, better lighting, better camera. Also, upload to DA and link to etsy. It helps.
