Hey guys!!!
I am at a bit of a loss, I am trying to get my artwork seen but am having a tough time getting it out there and I'm curious if any of you know of good sites that I could post pictures of it as I am mostly trying to just do custom work right now. A little a backstory, I left my job as a dog groomer Back in July to be a stay at home mom with my 8 month old daughter. After about 2 weeks of my basic mommy duties I started getting pretty restless and told my husband if I didn't have something to do to fill my time with other than chores around the house if would lose my mind!! So I decided to get back into Sculpey clay and being that I am familiar with dogs and horses I am primarily focusing on making them. I have sold quite a few pieces to friends on Facebook and have had some success with other groomers and by advertising on Facebook pages. I also have an etsy store but have not had a ton of traffic there either. I post all my work on Instagram, tumblr and Pinterest. I just made a Deviant art account and I'm hopeful that will help as well.
But I was hoping maybe so e of you would have some suggestions. I posted some examples of the work I do below so you have an idea. If any of you like my work please add me on my Facebook and follow me there, I'd really like that :).

I do a lot of my little pony stuff which I have also posted on the customs page.
I have had people tell me to use reddit, but I have nooo idea how to navigate that site!! It scares me lol XD
Thanks for any help

Hi @muffin236 I love the dogs, they look awesome.
Have you thought of joining dog and other animal groups on Facebook?
There is a lady who makes felted cat dolls custom made to your cat, you send a picture of your cat and she will make that.. Very pricey however. You wouldn't have to custom make the animal of course, but that could be another outlet and the cat FB groups are huge, I would imagine horses,dogs and other animal groups would be too.
I would look up the different breeds and possibly join the breed specific groups. ( just an idea)
All the best with your sales :)

Wow, those are really gorgeous! I'm afraid I don't have much experience with selling art online. There is deviantart.com, which is a good way to display work. There is Etsy, but if I remember correctly, you already use Etsy?? Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Those are ADORABLE. I think you could easily make a page on Facebook and send the link around to various animal pages for them to share. Pet owners on Facebook go crazy for stuff like this.

Those are some very cute ornaments! The dogs are adorable!
People already recomended some good places like Etsy and Deviantart. I don't know how well Elfwood is these days but it might be worth a shot there too?
