Pagan Goddess Commission 2021
Its a very rare thing for me to do a commission these days, but I love doing them. As most folks who have done commissions know, it can be tricky. You can make a custom order and the customer doesn't like the results, or you can finish a piece and it was misunderstood what the price was.
So I found writing it all down is very important. A simple agreement or contract for paid commissions seems to be a good idea. I ask for 50% payment down and will make two options if the work isn't too odd or unsaleable on the open market. I keep the 50% if the customer doesn't want the work- though they usually do.
But my favorite way to do custom work is to barter! I have never had issues in this way. Its been a pleasure for me in placing a unique customer based idea into physical reality.
Above is a pagan goddess with fern antlers and lichen hair. She holds whatever one wants to place in her hands(though I am throwing in a few goodies that can work) After this greenware stage she will be fired, glazed partially and then china painted with many layers.
