Frequently Asked Questions

Oh, and Valentine's day is coming.

cupcake charms.

Wedding cake.

Well, I kinda made all of these on a whim, but I feel they're very made for V-day. haha.

You know how everyone's getting flowers and the prices are hiked up so much it's outrageous? And you walk down that street proudly waving your precious bouquet, and before you can say happy-valentine's, three more girls have walked past you with uncannily similar bouquets. Personally I'll much rather spend the cash on something that's one of a kind, and that I can truly customise to my liking. Well, here's a proposition - fully customisable clay accessories!

~frequently asked questions~

Well, these clay pieces are pretty, but what can I do with them?

All of these clay pieces you see above, can be made into necklace/bracelet charms, or earrings, or keychains/handphone chains. Bigger clay pieces could be made into fancy magnets or paper clips.

So, what other designs are there?

I'll be more than happy to work on YOUR ideas, and customise something for you. Like having me write a name/message on the cake, or making human figurines instead, or your girlfriend's favourite item, etc etc. Anything can be worked out. :)

Items that I've produced are - cupcakes, cakes, human figurines, bears, flowers, biscuits, miniature replicas of food items etc.

What do I have to include in the email to you?

  • Include your name (if I don't know you yet), so that I have a way of addressing you. :)

  • Provide a description and rough size of the object you'll like me to craft. (indicate any specific preferences for colours/poses) If possible, images/photos would be very much appreciated.

  • State the date you will like the clay-piece to be mailed by and shipping address.

  • SEND THE MAIL! and wait for a confirmation email or a follow-up mail from me. :)

Hmm, but will the clay be damaged after time? (edited on 7November 2009)

I now sculpt solely with polymer clay now, and after sculpting, it will be oven-baked to ensure permanence of colour and hardness. Polymer clay is actually a type of plastic, and is extremely durable and strong once allowed to cure at the right temperature and for the right period of time.

Unless you enjoy prodding at the sculpture with sharp needles, or stepping hard on them, or twisting them at extremely awkward angles, the answer is, no the sculptures will not be damaged with time. :) With proper handling, your item will last forever.

How long do I have to wait before I can collect my item?

This depends on the waiting list of customisations at that point of time.

Usually, from the day the design is finalised to the day of collection, it can be as short as a week to no longer than 1 month.

However, for extremely large ( above 5cm in height/width)/extremely detailed items or orders of multiple items, I will inform you about the time I would require to complete the order/s, and you can decide whether to commit then. :)

To be safe, do email me with your request in no less than a week from the preferred date of collection! :)

The comment form is so darn small! Other forms of contacts please!

Do email me at, and I'll reply to all requests or questions in 3 days latest! :) Also, you could scroll through my entries for photos of my other clay pieces!

When do I pay, and how will I receive my purchase?

To prevent any misunderstandings, I will be collecting a non-refundable full payment before I proceed with making your item/s. All items will be posted by registered article via Singpost.

Payment can be made through Internet banking, Inter-Bank Transfer, Paypal or ATM transfer to POSB account.

Please transfer all payment to 039-25211-2 POSB Savings, or for Paypal transfers.
To allow for checking of payment, please email me at after making payment.

~end of faq~

Of course, this can be for any other occasion besides V-day, or even if you just really want to own a totally quirky item you can totally call your own! So feel free to contact me for purchases or queries even after 14th February. :)

As I said, anything can be worked out, and don't fret. I'm totally okay even if you decide not to purchase anything in the end. Promise. :)
