Sealant/MSC issues -- and notice for my customers!

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 20, 2014, 11:23 PM

Hey, guys! Just wanted to make a quick update here.

Before I start though -- does anyone know if there are any US online stores that still sell Mr. Super Clear? (other than Amazon/eBay)

It seems like they've all disappeared. x_x;;

Anywhooo. This is mostly for those who I'm currently working with and doing commissions for. As many of you know (since everyone in the hobby has been talking about it) VolksUSA is down/closed/whatever. Now, I rarely buy anything from Volks, but the one thing I do buy from them almost religiously is their ZM Finishing Powder. I use this sealant 100% of the time with my commissions, mostly because I have worked with all the available "face-up safe" sealants around, and prefer it based on its quality, texture, translucency and overall ability to not screw shit up as often as MSC does. :XD:

Unfortunately since VolksUSA has closed, I have had no way of getting ZM spray. It doesn't seem to be sold anywhere else (since it's a Volks product) and most face-up artists I know are just as bothered by this as I am. I bought 4 cans of it recently which have just now arrived. But it looks like I'm going to be switching back to MSC UVcut for a while, it seems. I'm not sure if Volks will be offering ZM spray again any time soon. I e-mailed them about it and the reply was pretty generic and not very telling. So, yeah.

The reason why I'm telling everyone who I'm working with about this is because I've been at a bit of a pause with my commissions while waiting for sealant to arrive. Normally I can just buy ZM Finishing Powder directly from L.A. and have it arrive in a day or so with no problems and cheaper domestic shipping prices. But now I'm having to import MSC from Asia via ground services which are not cheap, take a long damn time, and not to mention MSC UVcut is often double the price as ZM Finishing Powder, which I will never understand.

So I just wanted to apologize for any kind of delay you may have experienced in my turn-around due to this. I will be working on commissions again starting tomorrow since my other case of sealant should be arriving soon as well. :) If any of you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a note!

I just wanted to say that you have totally inspired me to chase my doll dreams of getting a male doll that looks like Genki of the vk band VanessA (he's now Tsuzuku of Mejibray) hehe. Thank you! <33
