My skull art has been very therapeutic for me since I have been struggling with my health. They also have helped me stay afloat financially. Commissions provide an opportunity to work closely with persons interested my art and desiring specific colours and designs.
COMMISSIONS ARE COMPLETED TO THE SPECIFICATIONS OF THE PERSON ORDERING THE SKULL. A deposit is required at the time of commissioning a skull to cover the cost of the skull and this deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE. The reason this deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE is because of the time that I put into acquiring the skull, cleaning if necessary and whitening. I see this as respect for my art since I have invested labour, supplies and time into your lovely piece and there should be an equal exchange. This also covers the cost of filling out the paperwork for necessary permits (there is no cost for the permit but I do charge for the time I spend completing required forms).
The cost of the completed skull includes:
~cost of the skull & cleaning
~hourly rate of $15/hour
AVERAGE PRICES: *plus shipping
WOLF ~ 100 (DEPOSIT) Approx 250
COYOTE ~ 50 (DEPOSIT) Approx 150
DEER ~ 150 (DEPOSIT) Approx 300
BOBCAT, LYNX, FOX ~ 50 (DEPOSIT) Approx 165
*if skull is not listed ASK FOR CUSTOM QUOTE
PayPal (Friends and Family so that amount is automatically deposited in my account) for DEPOSIT and final payment(Reminder Deposit for this skull is NON-REFUNDABLE even if you decide you no longer want the skull). I need confirmed payment before I ship the skull.
*Exceptions: If the skull is shipped and it arrives damaged – I will pay for return shipping and return deposit. This is highly unlikely since I ship packages with fragile stickers and cover the skull in layers of bubble wrap.
Also accept CASH & WESTERN UNION.
Each piece takes 2 – 3 weeks to complete depending on the size of the skull. Once the skull is complete and ready to ship/pick up, the buyer completes payment within 7 business days. This process is important to me since I support myself with the skulls and once I have completed my side of the agreement, I ask for respect for my art and payment for the hours that I have completed. If the buyer does not complete payment within 7 business days without adequate reason, I reserve the right to withhold the product. By agreeing to the commission, you are agreeing to these terms.
I spend hours and hours on each skull. I also use tools including sage, cedar and incense to cleanse the skull regularly. I put my heart and soul into the process for each and every skull and also send progress pictures so you can see the designs evolve. For this reason, once I complete your beautiful piece of art, I would appreciate payment within the 7 business day time-frame. I will ship the skull as soon as I have confirmed payment.
Thank you so much for honouring my craft and for wanting a beautiful skull creation in your life!! ^_^
