How this was made:

This beautiful dragon was handsculpted with granite-effect 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. The last two crystals on his tail are real aqua aura points, and the rest were created with resin and iridescent craft flakes.

 

Personality:

At the bottom of the deepest ocean in the Water Region, Marinus lays peacefully on the seabed. He collects sunken treasures and crystals, some of which develop naturally in the underwear caves of the Water Region - others which were originally left on the beach but got washed away by the tide. His stony grey body gives him the perfect camoflage against the rocky and sandy seabed, and he is so still and peaceful - as if in a kind of perpetual mediation, or a trance - that moss and algae have started to adorn his body as well. However, he has a light that shines from within - his skin sparkles and so too do the many crystals he has in his possession. Many say that it is the deep wisdom he has - as deep indeed, as the sea he resides in - that gives him his magnificent appearance, while still blending in perfectly to the magical underwater world of the Water Region.

 

Extra information:

  • 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.
