Materials and Tools

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

My maquettes are constructed using Aves Apoxie SculptSuper Sculpey, and Sculpey Firm. 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 Cel Vinylpaints, using both an airbrush and regular 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 need to get in touch with me, please use the contact form on my website,

All sculpture photos are taken by my Husband, Joe Coleman :iconphantom42:

Hey, I'm one of your watchers. A recent Tumblr post has revealed that DA owns your art though and not you. I've made a Journal to help inform people about this as to spread the word.
Here's a link to the journal entry that tells what is going on. I suggest you make a journal entry for your watchers as well so they know what is going on.…

Hi Emily! I'm just starting to get into commissions now that I'm intermediate with sculpture. I am unsure how to go about pricing. I think your prices are completely fair since you are very established and well respected. I am thinking about starting my prices at half of what you charge currently, since I'm a college student just starting out. I'm thinking of starting them at around $60-$70 base price? Does this seem too low? Here would be an example…

Thank you so much, you are a huge inspiration, as I must have told you before ^^;
