How this was made:This beautiful dragon was handsculpted with polymer clay around a wire armature, then painted with acrylics and glitters before being coated in epoxy resin, to ensure maximum strength and durability of its spines and limbs. It is attached to a base of fake grass and an orange with a piece sliced off, also made with polymerclay.
It is not hard for anyone to see that Tango was born to be an Earth Region dragon! When his egg was delivered to the hatchery, it was surrounded by oranges and other plants. Then when he hatched, everyone was amazed to see that his body matched the oranges perfectly. He was sporting the same cheerful colours of orange, green and white, making him look just as succulent as the fruits he so enjoys the company of. It is clear that Tango would now like to be taken care of by someone with the same love and respect for nature and all that it has to offer, that he has! He is, by all accounts, as joyful and sweet a companion as a refreshing glass of orange juice on a hot summer's day!
Extra information:From the 'extra additions' drop-down menu, please select whether you would like this dragon to come gift wrapped or not before adding it to your cart. :)
Tango - The Orange Summer Dragon
Any finished sculpture or item of jewellery of mine that you receive, should be relatively strong, but not indestructible. As such, adequate care should be taken to ensure that the piece is out of reach of pets, children, and the possibility of being dropped, as you would with any other fragile ornament in the home. That being said, it will be certainly be strong enough for moderate handling as you examine it and admire its unique features! :)
Will I have to pay extra for shipping/postage?
There is no additional charge for postage - all is included in the price of the dragon.
How many creations can I recieve from you in one go?
In one parcel, there will be sent a maximum of two to three creations, depending on their size. If you feel like going on a larger shopping spree (and I would not mind if you did!) expect to recieve two or three at a time, in different parcels that may be delivered on different days, depending on whether the creations you have ordered differ in the time they need to be prepared before posting (for instance, if one of your purchases includes a made-to-order item). Sending a couple of creations at a time in smaller packages is to keep postage costs down on my end, as I do not charge extra for postage, and one large parcel costs far more to send than a fewer smaller ones.
How long will my order take to get to me?
If you live in the UK (where I am based) you can expect your parcel to arrive within one to two weeks once I have posted it off (which may take up to a week for me to prepare beforehand if you have selected any extra additions from the drop-down menu). If you live in the US, your parcel will likely take two to three weeks to arrive after I have sent it out. It is important that these shipping times are taken into account if the item is needed before a certain deadline (e.g as a birthday present) as well as if you have purchased a made-to-order item.
What is the difference between waiting for a made-to-order item and waiting for a pre-made item?
If the item you have ordered is classed as "made-to-order", that could add a maximum of an extra week on to the time it will take to reach you, from the moment of purchase (due to the time it will take me to hand-craft your purchase from scratch). Don't worry though - if the item you want is made-to-order, it will say in big letters at the top of the item's description. If your item does not say anything about it being made-to-order in the description, then you can assume that it is a pre-made creation, and therefore will be ready to be posted to you in a week or less.
