  • My daughter didnt want a dinosaur ring dish, so we found a little dog and substituted that for a Dino. Would be great if you offered this kit with other animals ... Or objects. Turned out really cute. Thanks!
  • Thanks for the feedback Victoria! We launched a #cat version today. Great idea to offer lots of animals . . we'll work on it ahead of holiday!
  • PS If you have a photo of the your daughter's dog version instagram us a pic and tag it #darbysmart. We'll feature it on our site to inspire others and show her creativity!
  • What do the other critters look like (besides the dinosaurs)? Specifically, wondering which monuments would be included in the kit.
  • the monuments are an assortment (we include 4 different ones). Some examples are the Empire State Building, Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Great Pyramids. But no promises on any of these .. they are all super cool but if theres something very specific you're looking for we may not make you happy. Its more of the surprise element! Though, we tend to always surprise to the awesome side!
  • I'd like gold and silver paint pens please.
  • I LOVE this!! And since I cannot decided what I want... dino, pups, monuments, cats... I'm letting you surprise me!! I'm beyond pumped to have found #DARBYSMART!!
  • We love this kit too and love even more that you are letting us surprise you! Let us know how we did ;)
  • Love that this has other critters to choose from (I'm a cat person)! Any ideas on how other people have made teh gold stripes or rings on the dishes? I don't know if I could freehand that!
  • We love cats here at Darby Smart too :) For the stripes, we've seen lots of folks use tape to create smooth lines. For the rings, if you place a smaller glass upside down inside the dish and circle around it, you'll get a nice effect. Have fun!
  • Could you include a pink & silver pen also with my gold pen? I just ordered :)
  • I just ordered my dino critter dish and I am SOOOOO excited!!! If it's at possible, I would love to have a blue and green pen as well. Thank you so much! I can't wait to get started on my first ever Darby Smart DIY :)
  • Are you still offering extra colors for this kit?
  • We love your enthusiasm Kristen, but for now, we are only shipping the kit with the gold pen. We will keep your color suggestions in mind though!
  • Hi Jessica! We are only offering this kit with the gold pen shown right now, but we do aim to please and will consider adding more color options in the future :)
  • Super easy to make and adorable! They make great gifts!
  • Oh how we adore the critter ring dishes too PeggySue! Which critter is your favorite?
  • I got the cat one! So cute!
  • I see a picture of a giraffe....how can I order that one?
  • Morgan-Brooke, love the giraffe! We sell the safari animal collection in our supplies store, so a Darby Smarter most likely purchased this project and extra critters! Here's a link to our store: http://www.darbysmart.com/craft-supplies/party-animals. We will also think about adding this as an option with this project too, so check back ;).
  • I messed up one of my two dishes. Can you suggest somewhere I can get another? They aren't on the supplies page
  • Hi Alex! Ring dishes are a great item to include in our store. Thanks for writing in and we are adding this to our store ASAP :).
  • When you order these for the Monuments, do they randomly come with different monuments or do they automatically come with the Eiffel Tower? I <3 <3 <3 the Eiffel tower so I really want that one! :)
  • Hi Sarah! They come with random monuments, but shoot us a note to [email protected] after you've placed your order and although there are no guarantees, we'll try our best ;).
  • I'd look at the thrift store for a pretty saucer.
  • Am I able to request the Eifell Tower in my order?
  • Love the Eifell Tower too Shareen, but unfortunately, we can't honor any special requests. BUT, there are plenty of awesome monuments that may come with your project like the Statue of Liberty, Big Ben, Leaning Tower of Pisa, etc!
  • Darby Smart It says above, "Critters of Your Choosing," so why can't she choose the ET? PROJECT INCLUDES: Ceramic Ring Dishes (2) Metallic Gold Paint Pen Critters of Your Choosing Glue DIY Instructions
  • April Waters Great point April, and we don't mean to be misleading here, but meant more on a general sense in terms of the categories ex: Cats, Dinos, Pups, Monuments (which are various ones), etc. Hope this explains it better :)
  • Darby Smart Maybe you should list as "various monuments," if you won't let us choose a specific building.
  • what diameter are these dishes?
  • Hey! Slightly freaking cuz I ordered and payapl submittes the wrong address...and I cant find a place to write to someone to change it. Help? :)
  • Can anyone help me find the white ring pictured?
  • I will def. order this if you can guarantee the Eiffel Tower & Empire State Building (or other NY monument) as that is where I met my boyfriend and where we live now.
  • Thanks for the question Natalie and they are 3.75" in diameter!
  • Awwhhhh, love your story Rosey, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee which out of our 7 different monuments will ship, but we think all of them are great ;)
  • Sarah, no need to freak! Shoot us a note to [email protected] and we'll get ya taken care of!
  • Is there a way to request the boxer dog? I just received my order of the pups and I didn't realize the boxer would not come with it.
  • If I choose Surprise Me! is it a mix of the different sets or you just pick one?
  • We love surprises and we give ya a mix so you can have some fun with a few different critters!
  • We hate to disappoint Merideth, but with soooo many different critters and so many orders, we can't guarantee specific ones!
  • Received today and excited is an understatement. I cant believe that all the supplies like the gloss are full size products, this is way cool. Keep comin out with new stuff because I am here to stay!
  • Love your excitement Chris, and believe us, we'll keep em comin! Thanks for sharing here and being awesome ;)
  • It's a bracelet, and I think it says jcrew on the inside. Hope that helps!
  • Loved this! Though my superglue was not fully sealed at the time of shipment and it leaked out and hardened so I could not open it. Ended up using some different glue which worked fine.
  • Hey Emily! Happy to hear your project turned out great, but we owe ya some super glue, so shoot us a note to [email protected]!
  • I love this craft, and my dishes look great, but for some reason the paint has stayed damp and sticky on my little critters (a few days later). Do you have any advice to get them to dry so I can glue them on and give my lovely little gifts?
  • Hi! like what I received but there were NO INSTRUCTIONS! Help please'
  • Laura, I had the same problem. Would love to know if they eventually dried?
  • Sima Westwood I made mine over a month ago. Still tacky.
  • Jillian Penfield , I ended up spraying over mine with some gold krylon from another kit and they seem to be ok now.
  • I am also having the same problem with my critters not drying. Has anyone come up with a good solution?
  • it is on the card you received. darbysmart.com/howto enter code: bling
  • mine took two hours
  • Brenda Brown Thanks for helping Donna out Brenda! You're awesome ;)
  • YOU CAN GET THE LITTLE DOGS AT SOME DOLLAR STORES AND JUST SUBSITUTE OR MAKE SOME DIFFERENT ONES WITH THE DIFFERENT CRITTERS I GOT A WHOLE BAG AT THE DOLLAR STORE AND THEN HAD THE KIDS GO FOR IT AND THEN GLUED THEM ALL THE A BIG PLATTER I ALSO FOUND AT THE DOLLAR STORE AND IT WAS GREAT FUN NOT AS GLAMOUROUS AS THESE BUT THE BABIES SURE DO LOVE THEM AND I AM MAKING ONE WITH MALAMUTES AND DOING IT IN AN OLD CIGAR BOX AND PUTTING SOME ON INSIDE OF LID SO WHEN YOU OPEN IT YOU HAVE YOUR CHINS UPRIGHT AND YOUR RINGS IN THE BOTTOM YOU JUST HAVE TO MAKE SURE RIGHT SIZE AND SHAPE TO HOLD THE NECKLACES IN PLACE
  • YOU COULD PROBABLY FIND SOME AT SOME OF THE LITTLE SOUVENIR SHOPS I HAD MY FRIEND SEND ME SOME FROM VENICE BEACH AND LAS VEGAS BECAUSE THOSE ARE THE TWO PLACES WITH THE JOST MEANING IN MY LIFE AND THEY TURNED OUT GREAT JUST TWEAK IT A LITTLE TO MAKE IT YOUR OWN SPECIAL PIECE
  • Try a little spray on primer before you paint and a little quick dry (like at the nail salon) after.
  • I had a lot of trouble using this pen (I could not get a line of constant thickness). Can you tell me how to get the perfect circle like the one around the dinosaur in the first photo? I used up my whole gold pen because I kept messing up :(
  • The best way is to do a single stroke. If you go over your stroke multiple times, it ends up with uneven coverage. Make sense?
  • Sima Westwood we've applied a coat of mod podge to prevent the stickiness!
