All of our Mini You Figurines are personally handcrafted unique pieces of art. Our artists sculpt the heads from a polymer clay compound which allow the facial expressions to be intricately moulded. A great level of detail is given to capturing every distinguishing characteristic to achieve a close resemblance.
Draft photos are emailed at several stages to you for approval prior to commencing the next stage. Production follows the schedule below. Please allow approximately 3 working days between each stage upon approval (remember the quicker you reply back to us at each stage, the quicker we can ship your figurine to you!
