And who are you, the proud Lord said,
That I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
That's all the truth I know.

In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
A lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp, my Lord,
As long and sharp as yours.

As so he spoke, and so he spoke,
That Lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his halls,
With no one there to hear.
Yes, now the rains weep o'er his halls,
And not a soul to hear.

hello, your artwork is amazing! I just have one question, How do you ship them without them being damaged? I shipped one of mine, and I thought had wrapped it very well... well, two days later, I get a message and a picture from the customer. The sculpture was BROKEN! and more than just a little crack. it was shattered. If you could help me with any hints, thank you so much! Thank you for your time.

Well, the most important thing is to make sure your sculptures are structurally sound. If you're using Sculpey III, which is what I use, you have to know that the clay is pretty brittle. Premo is better about not snapping. It's important not to have super thin/fine details that stick out because they're going to snap easily. If you're sure that you'r sculpture is sturdy, the way I package them is to stick them in a small plastic bag or a box (if they're thin enough to do so). I then wrap them in enough bubble wrap to circle the bag/box a couple times, so basically it's a tube of bubble wrap. Then I tape each end closed. If it's a sculpture that can't fit into the box, I basically use the same method with the bubble wrap, but make sure that I'm not putting too much pressure on something that could possibly snap (like a tail or ears). Then if it's thin enough to be in a bag/box, I put it in a bubble mailer. Otherwise, I package it in a small box filled with packing peanuts. 

Here's a quick illustration of how I'd package a pendant without a box... sta.sh/015c2ny4umcr

You have 30,000 page views.  That is not insignficant.   If your art is private, then why post it in public forum?  You are the worst kind of hypocrite.  You criticize others for pandering for views while doing the same thing yourself.  I feel sorry for you.
