Sculptures for fish/supplies.

Recommended Posts

DNAlex edit 07/18/13:

The poster/artist as of this date has not resolved several outstanding commitments with various members of this board. She also has not answered PMs or emails written to her by the admin and owner of the forum. Therefore, it is recommended that you read through the entire thread, and DO NOT try to place any orders until matters have been resolved. We normally would close the thread, but we want to leave it open so that others can continue to give their input/comments.

Thank you.

I know this might seem kind of silly, but I've been debating it for a while now. I asked Koko if it was okay if I put sculptures up for trade here, and she said yes. c:


Here is a general idea of size of sculptures I usually charge $100 for:

Obviously a work in progress. xD She is going to be a shepherd mix dog. I'll post her photos when she is complete.

And here are what I usually do for $50:

They're all usually done within a week and I pay shipping. c:
Multiple little things or one big thing.

They do not need to equal the value of the sculpture. I'd be happy to take like a fifteen dollar item that I couldn't get otherwise.

Wishlist:
One nice red and white, or calico, short tailed Ryukin.
Other fish?
Snails!
Shrimp.
Live plants.
Decorations.
Necessities like a siphon, water treatment, fish food, prazi, etc.
Filters!
Live plants.
Fake plants.
Decorations.
Gravel, rocks, etc.

whatever you can think of that you have on hand to offer, or would be okay to buy and have shipped to my address.

For fish sculptures I can make the base of your sculpture look like your fish tank! c:
And for others I can give them little items. Like toys for dogs/cats, collars, blankets, pillows, etc. to make them very custom.

And I suppose if anyone is interested I also make things like this:

They're pose-able dolls.
I sculpt the head and feet and sew the rest, with a wire armature inside so they hold a pose. These seem to do better than the sculptures do, as far as selling goes.

I was gonna say, "I'll trade, I'll trade!" And then I looked at your trade list and all I have that you want is Cartman, my short tail calico ryukin :rofl and live plants. But my plants are common.

I do have a regular calico ryukin. But it might be cheaper to buy one from RG since shipping is a killer for us regular folk. Which ones were you interested in?

Ohmygosh. This is COMPLETELY off topic but I happened to click the link to the video of your aquarium and realized you are why I even found Kokos to begin with!

It was YOUR video that I watched and made me google it and then never could find again! And your beautiful tank that made me want to get a good, big, beautiful tank of my own.

Haha, I am just so happy right now. I never could properly put who referred me before but now I CAN!

What type of snails are you looking for and how many do you want? I might be ordering some blue apple snails at the.end of the month but I can't take more than one and they usually ship more than one otherwise it's not worth shipping. So I could tell the seller to split up the shipment if you wanted.

ooooh. I LOVE apple snails. c: One would be plenty for me, because of how big they get.

It you wanted to buy one, shipping to Australia is usually $12. <3

If you wanted to trade I am unsure how much anything you sent would cost to ship. xD I guess it depends on weight. The sculptures usually max out at one pound when boxed.

What about shipping to uk? Are they too fragile to ship that kind of distance? I LOVE your work, I love how detailed it is. You have an amazing tallent. :)

I would totally pay for a sculpture of my fantail Hercules, problem is I don't have any decent pics of him. would a video work for you?
