August: FULL (Thank you!)
September: FULL (Thank you!)
I will be closing all custom requests for now as I prepare for an event in SGDC2014 on November 16th 2014. Also, a recurring wrist/hand injury has slowed my progress as I try to pace myself a little better for current requests.
Thank you all for the support this far, and please stay up-to-date with my works at my facebook page below!:
How do I place an order?
Just e-mail me at snowfern at gmail dot com with reference photos, as well as scale/measurements of what you require. Serious requests only please, let's not waste each others' time :)
How much do you charge?
As these are intricately detailed items to customer specifications, the items will cost slightly higher than readily available items. A major factor will depend on whether I have ready molds in fixed sizes (like cupcakes, donuts, cookies etc) which will be considerably cheaper than more 'unique' items you require. Materials required for realism will also add to the cost (usage of resin, specially purchased materials etc). I will have to first understand your requirements before I can estimate the cost of the order to be fair to both my customer and I
For a rough idea of how much I charge, please refer to my Etsy store.
What materials do you use?
I work mostly with high quality Japanese Air Dry Clay for larger sized items (cakes, breads etc). For smaller items, I use mainly polymer clay. This is due to the size limitation of my oven, and also weight considerations for easier posing with the dolls. All items are sealed for durability. Air dry clay items are splashproof, but not waterproof. Due to the size and detail of items, please note these are NOT TOYS and should be handled with care. And of course, not edible
How long does it take?
Depends greatly on size of order and waitlist. I often have ongoing projects simultaneously, but strive to complete orders as quickly as possible. Usually a simple order will take 1-2 weeks to complete, but can be faster if I have other similar ongoing projects :)
Depends greatly on size and weight of order, I will refund any excess shipping.
LOCAL (Singapore) - FROM SGD$4 upwards (bubble envelopes), FROM SGD$7 upwards(postage box)
INTERNATIONAL - FROM USD$4.50 upwards (bubble envelopes), FROM USD$7 upwards (postage box)
I painstakingly hand-make these items, so I also take extra care in packaging them to reduce handling mishaps by the postal service.
All items will be sent via registered mail, which is included in the postage price.
Items will be sent out either Tuesday and Friday (morning), after full payment has been received.
What payment methods do you accept?
• I accept PAYPAL only for International Customers
SINGAPORE SHOPPERS ONLY:
• For Buyers who live in Singapore, Bank Funds Transfer only
When do I make payment?
For orders below USD$100, full upfront payment is required. I will require a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the quote for orders above USD$100. This goes into purchasing materials as well as work hours used while working on the request.
