Pricing of Collectable Silicone Figures
The collectable silicone figures are priced between $4000 and $5000, depending upon the fabrics selected and the complexity of any requested customization. Although only a limited number of these figures are made (less than 6 of any one figure) we do try to keep 1-2 figures in stock. Silicone figures that are in-stock can ship immediately as is. Otherwise, please allow 8-10 weeks to craft one just for you.
Pricing of Custom Portrait Busts
The basic sculpting fee is $7500. Portraits are created life-size and typically include a “head and shoulders” configuration such as seen in the examples. The bust is first sculpted in clay. Then a mold is created of the clay bust, and a casting is made in either bonded bronze or bonded marble. The entire process takes 8-10 weeks (depending upon the back-log of projects).
You can also choose to have the portrait cast in 100% bronze. For this option there are additional charges (foundry fees are typically an additional $2500).
Any costs associated with travel to the client are billed at cost.
Shipping charges are additional (however there is free delivery within 100 miles of Weston, CT).
