***IMPORTANT NEW NOTICE***

In order to secure a commission slot with me once I re-open commissions, you MUST e-mail me at lindseyhein@gmail.com. This is to avoid confusion and potentially lost notes, as well as to help me keep everything organized throughout my various social networking sites. Thank you so much for understanding!

*SCULPTURE COMMISSIONS*

The majority of my sculptures are made from Super Sculpey, and sometimes Apoxie Sculpt as well. They are painted with acrylic paint, and then coated with a protective sealant. I spend a great deal of time working on each of my figures, making sure every detail is in place and looks right.


Things I will Sculpt:

-Animal or pets, cartoony or semi-realistic

-Original animal characters

Things I may Sculpt:

-Anthro characters in a toony style

-Fanart characters. I am iffy about sculpting a lot of fanart characters. If it is a character I have done before, I am unlikely to sculpt it again. Just ask and I will be happy to let you know if it is a character I will accept.

Things I won't Sculpt:

-Humans

-Realistic animals and pets

-Anthro characters in a more realistic style

-Replicas of previous sculptures in my gallery

-Replicas of another artist's work(unless express permission from said artist is given)


POLICIES

Payment
Payment for sculptures is accepted through Paypal. If you have an Etsy account, I can also accept credit cards directly through Etsy, though there may be a small additional fee included. Commissions priced $50 and under must be paid in full before I can begin working on your sculpture. For any commissions over that price, a minimum 50% deposit is required to lock in your commission slot. The rest of the payment will be due once the piece has been sculpted, and before painting begins. Sculptures will NOT be baked and painted until payment is received in full.

Wait Time
Wait time for a sculpture will vary depending on size, complexity, as well as the amount of commissions I am currently working on at the time. Please inquire further if you wish to have a more accurate timeline. Please let me know at the time of commissioning if you have a specific due date for your sculpture. I will do my best to accommodate due dates, but please understand that this may not always be possible. Rush orders are occasionally available for an additional fee.

Refunds
Refunds are taken on a case-by-case basis. If I have not started work on your commission a full refund will be given. Once the commission has been baked is non-refundable except in extreme situations.

Revisions
Throughout the sculpting process I will send you several sets of progress photos for your approval. Depending on size and detail of the piece, I will typically send 1-2 sets of photos during the sculpting phase. Minor revisions may be made to pose and details during this phase. If a deposit on the sculpture was placed, this will also be when the final payment is due. Once the sculpture is baked you may not make changes to any sculptural aspects. A final approval photo will be sent once the sculpture is painted. At this point you may request revisions to the paint job. Please note that due to the painting process it may not be possible to change major parts such as a character's main color, etc. I do my very best to remain as accurate as I can to your character's color palette, so please be sure that you provide me with accurate reference photos at the time of commissioning. 

Sharing
I often share progress photos of my sculptures on social networking sites such as Tumblr and Instagram. Finished photos are also posted on social networking sites once the sculpture is completed. If your sculpture is a surprise for someone and you would prefer photos not to be shared until they receive their gift, please let me know at the time of commissioning.

You are also welcome to share photos of your sculpture online, as long as I am given full credit and you do not claim to have created it in any way.

PRICING

Pricing for sculptures will vary depending on pose, complexity of the character, etc. Characters with large amounts of detail(clothes, lots of fur, wings, intricate markings) will increase the price. A plain stained or painted wooden base may be included for no additional fee. Detailed bases will be additional. Please note that certain poses may require the use of a base as well.

My sculptures come in one standard size, that ranges between 3-5in tall. If you have a specific size in mind, let me know and I would be happy to discuss it with you.


The following are starting prices for sculpture commissions. Please email me at lindseyhein@gmail.com with a detailed description of your desired sculpture to receive a more accurate price quote.


Animals and Feral Characters:

$70 and up

Examples:
Nax the Buttergi Sculpture by LeiliaK
Myn the Dragon Sculpture by LeiliaK     Melde and Pwykka Sculpture by LeiliaK

Squee Sculpture by LeiliaK


Anthro Characters:

$90 and up

Leilia the Welshie Sculpture by LeiliaK


Shipping is based on weight, but will usually be around $10-15 within the US. If you are outside the US shipping can vary greatly, please contact me to get an accurate shipping quote to your location.

*POP-OUT BOTTLE CAP SCULPTURE COMMISSIONS*

Pop-Out sculptures have characters sculpted into bottle caps that appear to be "popping out".  These characters are made from polymer clay and apoxie sculpt and sculpted inside a real bottle cap.  They are painted with acrylic paint and sealed with a protective gloss glaze.  You may choose between a necklace or magnet backing so that you may display your bottle cap in many places. 

Pop-Out sculpture commissions range from $30-$35+$3($10 outside the US) shipping.  Orders must be paid in full before I can begin work on your item.  Please allow approximately 2-3 weeks for your sculpture to be completed and ready for shipping.

Examples: Leilia Pop-Out Bottle Cap Sculpture Re-Design by LeiliaK    Golden Retriever Pop-Out Necklace by LeiliaK      Jay Pop-out Bottle Cap Magnet by LeiliaK

Is your etsy name the same as your deviantart name? And also, are you allowed to ask for requests (like wolfs rain)? :)

LeiliaK Featured By Owner May 15, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hi! My Etsy shop is the same name. You can find it here: [link]

You are certainly welcome to send suggestions my way. Though I can't guarantee that they will be made unless you officially commission a piece from me. ;) (I'm quite a fan of Wolf's Rain myself. These are really old, but you can see some small sculptures I did from the series here: [link] )

Too bad international shipping is a let down. ;_;
I hate the fact that I live outside of the US.

Just for the record, incase I'd like to order anyway, roughly how big are the extra small charms?
Reply
:iconleiliak:
LeiliaK Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Aww, I know. :/ My husband works in shipping for an online store, so I can always check with him if there is any way to reduce the cost for international shipping.

The extra small charms vary, but are typically less than a inch tall. They are quite little. :)

Oh! Let me know if it's possible to lower it, if you please!
Your charms are adorable, it's a shame about international shipping. :c

Ahh I see! Thank you very much! :heart:

great info!
Figuring our prices for commissioned sculpture is hard work x_x ive been meaning to get around to it.
And international shipping is a killer isnt it? :/
I also hope sometime when I have the time I can feature friends in my journal to help get more business for them!

Thanks. I definitely spent a while trying to decide how to price everything. Hopefully the prices seem fair enough.
That's a really wonderful idea to feature different artists. I've definitely thought about doing something like that as well. :D

they seem great to me, I hope you get lots of customers! I was wondering also why that persons last unicorn commission fell through, it was such a great sculpture o_o like completely adorable. When you make something it seems like a legit figurine, like your poochyena sculpture looks literally like a perfect figure straight from nintendo, better even :)

Aw, thank you so much! I've only been sculpting since January, so I have a lot to learn, but I really try to put a lot of effort and work into each of my pieces. It means a lot to me to hear that my figures look very accurate. :)

I sent you a private note about the unicorn commission, as it's kind of a long story.
