***IMPORTANT NEW NOTICE***
In order to secure a commission slot with me once I re-open commissions, you MUST e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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*
All of my sculptures are hand made from polymer clay. 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.POLICIES
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 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 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.
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.
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 greatly depending on size, 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 with be an additional $10+. Please note that certain poses may require the use of a base as well. Human and human-like characters are taken on a case by case basis, and will be considerably more expensive than creature sculptures. I currently do not offer fully realistic style sculptures of humans or animals. Also keep in mind that I will not re-sculpt an exact replica of most sculptures in my gallery. The same character is usually okay, but it will need to be in a different pose. Otherwise my sculptures will lose their one-of-a-kind nature.

Pop-Out sculptures have characters sculpted into bottle caps that appear to be "popping out". These characters are made from polymer clay 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 pin, magnet, or necklace backing so that you may display your bottle cap in many places.
Pop-Out sculpture commissions range from $25-$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.
