I still have a few spots remaining in my current round of commissions.  This is going to be my final round of 2014.  My next opening won't be until January 2015.  If you were looking for a sculpture gift for the holidays, now is your time!  

To read about how to apply for a commission slot and to read my full policy, please head over to my website for all the details.

PLEASE do not submit commission inquiries through deviantArt.  I do not accept points as payment for commissions.

Materials and Tools

Please read the description of any piece to see what materials I used for its construction.

My maquettes are constructed using Super Sculpey and Sculpey Firm.  Some of my maquettes as well as my larger sculptures are made using Aves Apoxie Sculpt and/or Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam.    I also work with Monster Clay and create molds/casts from these sculpts.

My armatures consist of household aluminum foil, as well as aluminum armature wire.  I paint with Delta Ceramcoat craft acrylic paints, using both an airbrush (for larger pieces) and hand brushes.

I buy my wood bases at Jo-Ann, Michael's, and AC Moore.  They are available at most local craft stores in the US.  I am not familiar with where you can purchase them internationally, but factory direct craft sells wood bases and ships internationally.

For Supply Purchase, Try....

Concerning Sales

If a piece is for sale in my gallery, it will state so in the description.  If it does not mention being for sale, it was either a custom piece created for someone else or it has already been sold (or I am just not selling it!)  Please do not ask me to remake any pieces in my gallery; not only is this boring for me to do, it defeats much of the purpose of owning an original.  I do not mind sculpting the same character again, but it needs to be in a fresh light.

Check out the for sale section in my gallery to see a selection of works currently available for purchase.

A Note About Questions

I will no longer be responding to material related questions that can be answered with a simple Google search or that I have answered on this page.  I am not doing this to be mean.  I get a LOT of questions that I simply do not have the time to respond to.

If you have a questions about technique, PLEASE check my tutorials in my gallery to see that it isn't answered there first.  I put a lot of time and effort into those and they explain a majority of what I do.  

Group Requests

While I appreciate the motion,  I do not accept requests to unthemed groups or groups with themes that are irrelevant to the particular sculpture.  Please don't take it personally if I decline your group invitation.  I welcome themed group invitations, regardless of quality control.


Yes, I have comments turned off.  It is for a number of reasons, but mainly because I don't have the time to manage them.  If you really want to comment on a specific piece, feel free to send me a note or comment on the gallery page.

Hi Emily! HUGE fan of your work and owner of a creature sculpt book ^^
I was wondering, how do you go about packaging a sculpture? I was thinking of making one for my friend, but I have no idea how to safely mail it to her....

Thank you so much in advance!
