How to order an Icon

ORDERING A HAND-MADE ICON IS A 3-STEP PROCESS. HERE ARE THE STEPS THAT I WILL TAKE WITH YOU TO ACHIEVE THE PERFECT PIECE.

1. CHOOSE A SAINT, ANGEL OR RELIGIOUS FIGURE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE PORTRAYED. THIS CAN BE BASED ON A NAME, A PATRON FAMILY SAINT, OR EVEN YOUR PROFESSION.

2. THINK ABOUT THE SIZE OF THE PIECE, AND MATERIALS YOU’D LIKE USED. ALSO KEEP AN IDEA OF BUDGET IN MIND. COSTS VARY GREATLY DEPENDING ON THE SIZE AND COMPLEXITY OF AN ICON, AS WELL AS THE MATERIALS CHOSEN. FOR EXAMPLE, AGED WOOD AND 24KT GOLD LEAF WILL ULTIMATELY COST MORE THAN ACRYLIC PAINTS AND CANVAS.

3. EMAIL ME WITH YOUR IDEAS, AND I WILL WORK WITH YOU ON A DESIGN, AND GIVE YOU AN IDICATION OF THE TIMELINES INVOLVED. A 30% NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT WILL NEED TO BE GIVEN TO COVER THE COST OF STARTUP MATERIALS, AND THE BALANCE PAID UPON COMPLETION.
