Pretty cool. Im tempted to get 24 of them just for the price break and sell the extras.
After shipping costs, painting/time costs, and then shipping to buyers (not to mention any fees from ebay/paypal) I don't really see this as a viable option, unless you're looking to make just a few bucks for your time.

At the bulk rate of 24 for $240, you also have shipping. So Maybe $30? That puts each one at $11.25 each. Painted ones I'm guessing would maybe go for $20 each with free shipping on ebay; it's a novelty so people have to be "in the zone" to buy one. (ie: Kickstarter's buy now or it's gone! mentality) Ebay and PayPal fees are around 14% (so around $2.80). Shipping is around $3.50. $20 - $2.80 - $3.50 = $13.70. That's around $2.45 to cover your paint and labor.
Yah, I wouldn't do all of that. I'd keep like 5 for $50 and then sell the rest unpainted ;) Maybe give away another 5 for christmas gifts to gaming friends.

I do nothing that requires more labor than my wife boxing things up and shipping them. ;)

That's cool. 8-)

Probably not in for one since I don't game anymore, but looks fun. :)

Cool little prop for you game I am in for 3. I think they would make a good limited use/charged random potion bottle. I would make the players drink it then find out the what it does. That or make it a random potion 1 use a day with X amount of charges in it.
