This might be a weird pair of questions, but is that in sandstone? And if it is, is there a chance of the colors bleeding when it comes in contact with perspiration?

Yes, it's in full color standstone! I've worn this charm and a another one in fcs during the summer. So far I haven't noted any bleeding.

Is that something you've had issues with?

Oh, I haven't had that issue, no...I've been thinking of taking the plunge into sandstone (that actually sounds painful, doesn't it), and I saw on the materials description that it can lose color when wet.

I've also been thinking about converting some of my designs into wearable items, but if sandstone is an option, I think people would much prefer them in color.

BTW, that's a very fun design (I think I forgot to mention that in my last post). It's like chibi meets Beemo.

Aww thanks!

But it's definitely true that it loses color when in water. My friend accidentally dropped one of my other charms into a sink. If you'd like, I can post before and after photos.

To protect your sandstone, and make the colors pop, try coating in some polyurethane.
