About

Call me Cancel...

Before opening my shop in October 2015 I had been a consumer of fantasy silicone products for a few years. I found myself interested in becoming a creator of such products, wanting to make designs based on concepts, and/or shapes that I didn't find elsewhere. After looking into the various processes of how to do such a thing in a body safe manner, I started crafting.

I originally started doing this for myself for personal use. After making my first few models, however, I realized I had the molds and the idea of sharing my crew with others was enticing. I set up a personal website that ended up not functioning how I had hoped, but soon switched over to Etsy for everyone's comfort, ease and convenience.

This started out as a hobby. It gave me a deviant way to artistically express myself as well as explore various shapes and designs I hadn't seen on the market before. Since starting though, I am now slowly moving to treat this more like a part time job. I'll be sticking to offering the things I like such as soft and medium firmness, along with an array of metallic colors, but my crew has expanded to 10 main models as well as additional products that I work to keep in stock at any given time. I'm slowly starting to take on customs now and it just feels amazing to be doing this.

This is now a much beloved job for me. When I started, I wouldn't have thought that it could have built to a point that I could consider it as such, but here I am and I couldn't feel more humbled. Thank you everyone for your past and continued support and I hope to be able to continue to bring you fun new crew-members in the future both as new models and fun colorful pours of existing ones.

Frequently asked questions
Can I get a custom pour of one of your models?

I'll open occasionally for limited custom orders. When I do you can click the customs button in my shop to discuss what it is you're looking for on what model as far as colors and placement goes and I will respond to you with whether or not I think I can accommodate the request and set up a private listing for you to purchase. I will pour after payment has been made and send pictures before shipping out the item. There is an additional fee to cover the extra time custom pours require.

Pricing Guide : http://www.akrowsnest.com/price-guide.html
Base Price + Customs Fee + Additional Add-ons + Shipping = Total

I'll announce on Twitter and Tumblr when custom slots are available and when they are full.

Care instructions

Product is made of platinum grade silicone. Please wash with standard hand or dish soap to prevent damage to product. Product can be bleached as well but item should be thoroughly rinsed before use. Water based lubrication should be used with product. Do not store silicone items with items made of other materials as silicone may break down or be broken down if it comes into contact with certain jelly based and/or plastic toys.

Gift wrapping and packaging

At this time I do not offer any gift wrapping options. Packaging is discrete. Items are shipped within a clear plastic wrapping around the item(s). They are then wrapped with tissue paper and/or packing peanuts. For domestic and international orders the priority shipping boxes are used. Return address shipping labels DO NOT list the shop name (A Krows Nest). Instead it lists the initials N.S for the return address label as well as the shop's POBox address. Customs forms will have "silicone sculpture" or "silicone art" written as the item description for international orders. This is due to how silicone scans and it needs to be declared for customs.

Why do you only offer toys in x, y, and z?

I tend to make product and models with myself in mind. This may be considered selfish or inappropriate for some, but honestly I like to offer products that I can stand behind. The size, color, and firmness options for toys isn't meant to exclude anyone, it's just simply personal preference. No shop fits everyone, especially when it comes to items such as my shop offers. Even if my shop doesn't fit your need I still appreciate that you took the time to check it!

Why is international shipping so expensive?

As a small time hobbyist being out cost and product isn't really an option for me. Unfortunately with the shipping options as they are the cheapest international option with insurance and tracking is $40-$65. You can calculate your estimated shipping here. : https://ircalc.usps.com/ (Estimated value $100, international medium flat rate box, ship from zip code 57701) Smaller items will ship with a small box which is a bit cheaper. I don't set the pricing, but it's the only option I really have with full protection and locating options.

I want to try doing this, will you share your secrets/tell me how you do what you do?

I love hearing that more people are looking to get into this hobby. That said though I have no tutorials or information on hand that I can or would be willing to give out. You can find many tutorials and information online, however, just as I did from folks who are far more qualified in explaining and providing such details. You can also check smooth-on's website directly for silicone tutorials.

What artist do you use for your shop?

Though I've only been asked this a few times, I do like to credit artists for all the work they put in for me where it's used. All artwork, logos, and graphics are done by Tanks on furaffinity. [ https://www.furaffinity.net/user/tanks/ ] She is the only artist I will probably use not only because I'm very close to her, but also she manages to get everything just right if not better than I originally picture in my head.

What does the term 'Lockered' in some of the listings mean?

'Lockered' models as I like to call them are retired models that the shop previously offered and I've since put into retirement either due to low popularity or updated versions being released/planned. Occasionally some in stock items will slip into the shop but otherwise the only time to grab that model is through custom orders. This was updated in December of 2017. All lockered models can be viewed here: http://www.akrowsnest.com/lockered-models.html

Could you notify me when x item is back in stock?

I used to send notifications out to anyone who requested when certain items were restocked in the shop. Unfortunately I'm not able to do that any longer due to the high amount of requests I receive for this. It's next to impossible for me to sort through messages and find who asked for which model in which firmness. I've tried keeping lists and excel sheets but to be honest it's just too much for me to manage in addition to everything else I handle for this shop. So far this is a one man shop and I can only handle so much alone.

Instead I suggest following me on twitter or tumblr as I post photos when new stock is launched in the shop. Sorry for the inconvenience!
