Li'l Dreamer 2009 - New versions available, see post #138

Recommended Posts

Artwork has been finalized (I think we were on version 8? I hope Emma doesn't hate me!) and samples are ordered. :huh: I somehow managed to come up with 6 combinations!

 

Since we're going to leave early for GCF and do a national park/caching trip through four states, samples wouldn't get to me in time. However, Emma is going to bring the to GCF so I will have them there!! :(

 

So exciting. B)

That is the cutest coin. I'm so glad the boo boo unicorn has a happier side. :D I saw a baby mini horse the other day in a field and she was soooo tiny. Just like a little unicorn. I could just see her with a fake horn on her head.. with ribbons! Your coin makes me smile. Nice job

 

PS.. I have heard wonderful things about Emma. Sarah, though, should win the prize for patience as I have changed my coin SO many times that I've lost count.

There were some issues with the rainbows in the first round of samples, so we tried something different and I just got the second set of samples today! I only ordered one sample to double check the rainbow, but I wanted to share the older samples which included a lot of different metal choices.

 

New sample:

Old samples:

Now I need to figure out what combos I actually want to get produced! :signalviolin:

I particularly like the BN version (do the unicorn in a fine white glitter... :sad: )

 

Any of the ones with IHE look good but I also like the one with the gold glitter (try a small flake glitter...) tho the rainbow should be filled.

 

2 cents... :signalviolin:

The Black Nickel is my favorite one. Hope I'll be able to get my hands on that cute little coin :signalviolin:

I still LOVE this coin. :signalviolin: You know I want one in every metal you get. I really love the all-metal ones where just the pony/unicorn is colored in.

Definately would have to be fine white lest ye overdo it

I did a sample with the fine white glitter (the gold is fine glitter as well, it just is difficult to photograph). The problem is that it makes the unicorn body seem deeper than the rest of the coin - including the hooves/mane/horn. The mint does not allow having two different color glitter areas next to each other, so it ended up not being what I was hoping for.

 

I'll attempt to take pictures tonight, but I'm not sure that it's something that can be captured in a photo.

I got to see these at GCF and I have to say that they were so darn cute! Anne, I hope you got the rainbow to your liking, I can't wait to see what the new ones look like. I know they will be great.

Hey all!

 

I finally got the rainbow sorted out, and after a few more goes at the mint artwork I have ordered some coins! Kinda wishing I'd put 2010 on them now :blink:

 

Anyway, I have ordered 125 Black Nickel (which will be reminted if there is interest), and 25 antique silver which will look slightly different from the version posted above. I will possibly order 25 more of them (so no more than 50 will be made) depending on interest.

 

I also have created two gold versions and an antique copper version, and I'll be getting samples of those versions when I get my order. :laughing:

 

Pictures will be posted when I get them, probably the last week of the year!

Here is the mint artwork of the various versions. All the antiqued versions will have small glitter in the tail/mane/hooves/horn.

 

There will be a unique icon which I have yet to design.

I agree with the BN part. I love how it makes an image like this look like it's straight out of a coloring book.

Thanks all! I'll be sending out the paypal invoices for the first wave here in a bit. :lol:

 

Also, I was looking at prices, and I'm going to throw Canada into the US shipping rates as it's pretty comparable (well as long as you don't order a ton I guess :D

 

Thanks everyone!

Technically I just needed the NEW COIN: etc part of the title, not the previous part. But now I am rockin' the longest thread title ever! B)

 

(Seriously though, if the mods get a chance, feel free to shorten it up. :) )
