Clay / Ceramic
Polymer clay, varnish
NEW UPDATED VERSION!
Artist: Amanda Ramey
Materials: High quality polymer clay, varnish, love & patience ;)
Technique: Guin has been skillfully handsculpted with techniques that have taken years of patience, passion and dedication to refine. I use only my hands, a flexible blade, and a few pokey sticks, for detailing. Absolutely NO molds were used in Guin's creation, so no matter how similiar, every rendition of Guin is as special and unique as you are!
Size: Kissy Face Guin stands approximately 2 inches tall!
Originally created for Valentine's Day, this affectionate cutie would put a smile on any Mother's face! All set for Mother's Day? Then why don't you let someone else know that you care, or even that you're sorry and let Guin do all the sucking up for you!
Though it does not photograph well, the heart is made from red glittered clay and can be personalized at no extra charge! How about "I Love You", or "Happy Mother's Day"? A special gift for that special lady! Don't forget that grandmother's are moms and would love a PenGuin Kiss too ;)
Sculpture is solid clay - no armatures - and is not painted. Personalization is hand-drawn with permanent ink.
NOTE: On the bottom of every sculpture that I create, you will find that I have hand-carved my initials and the year in which I completed that particular piece. All works created on, or after October 13th, 2011 will also come numbered and the count for each edition (if it is to be recreated) will start from #1 each year - example shown in photo #4
-~- The Fictitious History of Guin -~-
Guin is a great thespian (a fancy word for "actor" ;)) and a brilliant master of disguise! As such, you may even see him taking over the reigns for some rather prestigious characters, like Peter Cottontail (a.k.a "The Easter Bunny"), or even good old St. Nick (a.k.a "Santa")! Hey, we all need a vacation sometimes ;)
Guin loves flattery (but not too much, as he is easily embarassed and prone to blushing), hamming it up for the camera, and pistachios. But most of all, he loves bringing a smile, a laugh, a chuckle, a snortle (it's a bit of a snort/chuckle combination, you know the one), or any other expression of merriment to his beloved audience and everyone else he meets. After all, that is why he got into show business in the first place ;) So please, sit back and enjoy the unfolding of Guin's journey to international stardom and pick up a piece of memorabilia for yourself, or someone you care about!
NOTE FROM THE ARTIST: Hello, my Lovlies! I just wanted to pop by to make sure that everyone knew that the above "Fictitious History of Guin" is just that - a bit of fancy - a look into the imaginary world that I am creating for Guin...or is he creating it for me? I think it's a joint effort at this point ;)
All PenGuin Kisses will come in their own gift box!*
*All gift boxes are handcrafted by me and will be fashioned as featured in photo #5! If you would like 2 different colors used for the box, please let me know your preference in "Note To Seller" and I will match it the best I can.
PLEASE NOTE: I am a stay-at-home mom to an 1 1/2 year-old (an EXTREMELY active, 1 1/2 year-old!) little sweet pea, so some special orders (custom and/or some personalized) may take a little longer than others, but will be completed in a timely fashion - typically between 2 to 7 days.**
**This is an accurate estimation, made from my experiences, but is subject to vary with the size and complexity of each order/request. I'm very good at keeping my clients in the loop and am very quick to respond to update requests. In the past, I have even provided pictures of the current standing of a custom piece, in an effort to assure and better inform my clients!
Buy with confidence! I would rather ship an order a day late than sell something I would not buy myself! Please let me know if you would like a photo of your personalized work sent to you BEFORE I ship it for your approval - I am happy to oblige.
Thanks for taking a peek! Have a Guintastic day!

Duty Fees: Unfortunately when something crosses a border, or an ocean there is a chance that customs will slap a customer with a fee which must be paid when the item is picked up.
