Hi! I'm Emmilia Thomas. I sculpt cute miniature bird figurines for you! I finally open for commissions so you can order a custom bird sculpture as a precious memento of your beloved bird. Every piece of my work is completely handmade with love and attention to details. You will never find two items that will ever be exact, so each piece is completely unique and special! Please note that air dry clay can be delicate in nature, gentle use is recommended. The figurines will be shipped in a box from Indonesia.

  5. Other ideas:
    • If you have other ideas about what you like me to sculpt that I haven't listed above, please contact me and I'll let you know if I can do it for you. Below are some unique bird clay crafts I have made.
About prices & payment:
  • All prices are in US dollars, shipping and paypal fees are not included.

  • If your order is less than $200, payment must be paid upfront and it's non-refundable.
  • If your order is more than $200, you may pay half before I work and half before I ship it. FYI, in case after 1 month I've finished making the figurine and I still haven't got the rest of the payment, I have the right to sell it to another person and the 1st half you paid won't be refundable.
  • I'll start working after I get the payment.

Terms of Service & Copyright:
  • If you have any cool ideas that's not listed on the commission types above, feel free to talk about them to me and I'll let you know if I can sculpt them or not for you.
  • For a bird with color mutation, it's best to show me pics of your bird taken outdoor with shaded morning sunlight 7 - 8 am WITHOUT flash. It's best to take the pics of the bird on a porch where the sun light coming from the side of your porch. Do not take the pics with strong direct sunlight from top, the result will be like taking pics indoor with flash from your camera. Too much light will turn blue color into green and green into yellow. Send me pics from front, both sides, belly/bottom and back so that I can see the whole plumage color. You can also browse the internet to find pics of birds with the same color mutation if your bird has passed away. If no color mutation information is provided, the bird will be painted with the original species coloring. Any miscoloring because the client can not provide clear reference photos is not the artist's fault. Recoloring will require extra fee starting at $15.
  • Each product will be made upon order.
  • It will take about 1 - 2 weeks to work on the figurines because air dry clay takes days to cure. I post progress pics of commissioned pieces on my FB page.
  • All commissioned pieces are for personal use only. You are not allowed to use them for commercial gain, examples: making copies by using mold and sell them, or selling prints/merchandises from their photos.
  • You must read, understand and agree to all of these terms mentioned above before sending me a commission request.
