Bespoke Soap & Whimsical Pens
Fentastic Creations aims to create artisan products that are unique, colorful, sustainable, affordable and above all beautiful in order to eliminate the need for bland, mass-produced soaps and pens.
I am 14-year-old artist and entrepreneur Fenley Scurlock. I have grown up frequenting antique shops and flea markets, and have learned the art of scouting for unique artifacts that I can repurpose into products that are both useful and beautiful. As an avid traveler, I draw inspiration from places I visits all around the world.
My glycerin soaps are formed in antique Jell-o molds and Madeleine cake tins from France. I mix colors and infuse delightful smelling essential oils to create soaps that have been described by customers as "colorful gumdrop explosions" and "bits of stained glass."
My hand-sculpted polymer clay pens are crafted using colorful clay, wrapped around a refillable pen, baked, and coated with glaze. Each design is unique and the swirling, whimsical patterns are reminiscent of the marbled paper made famous in Florence, Italy.
Since 2015, I have been selling my creations at local artists' and farmers' markets. I have also made custom orders for holiday parties, bridal showers, and corporate events, and won awards for "Best Business", "Best Presentation" and "Best Sales Pitch" in my age category at young entrepreneurs fairs in Washington, DC and Maryland.
