HOW TO PURCHASE
Do you do Commissions/Custom Orders?
Yes, RLD does custom orders for Sock Sidekicks, pet portraits, and upcycle projects. RLD also does presentations and workshops but you are here because you want to know about purchasing items.
Well I want a Sock Sidekick, what happens?
Sock Sidekicks are purchased by custom orders. You are able to view the patterns available on the Sock Sidekick Gallery section.
RLD has over 90 sock animal patterns. If you do not see something, RLD may still have a pattern or will create one. Prices are located on the Sock Sidekick Gallery Section in the above link.
Once you decide on your sock sidekick pattern, send Amanda an email letting her know. She will contact you and ask for your color preference and the age of the recipient. Felt eyes are only used for children 3 and under. She will send you a picture of the socks she has available for the critter pattern you request in the color you would like. You choose and off she goes. Ususally after the socks are chosen, it takes two weeks. (If it is during the holidays, may take longer) She will send you a picture of the end product.
I LOVE my pet and want a portrait, do you do that?
RLD does pet portraits. As you can see Amanda's style is a little different than most in that she uses bright colors that would never be seen on a pet unless they had been dyed in a rainbow.
Commissions pieces of beloved pets are done by size.
$40 - 6x6, 5x7 and smaller
$60 - 8x8, 8x10
$80 - 9x12, 10x10
$100 - 11x14, 12x12
Larger sizes available at requests. Sales tax and shipping is not included in prices.
RLD does use commissioned portraits as cards, prints, medallions, buttons and on other items but if you do not wish your custom painting to be used in these areas, there is an additional cost of $100. Paying the additional cost does not give you publishing rights. This just means RLD is not allowed to use the artwork for other means listed above and this covers the cost of what would be made off of the additional items.
All paintings are done off of a photograph that is provided. Amanda does do progression photos as she paints and posts to Instagram if you wish to see some of her previous works. Any questions please ask.
I want one of your originals, where can I purchase those?
If you wish to purchase the actual paintings you can follow this link to see what originals are still available. Many of the paintings are commissions so if they are not on the page they are not available.
Paintings for Purchase
But I want to purchase a t-shirt...
RLD has a store at Red Bubble that offers a wide range of ways to order prints to clothing, bags, stickers and so much more. You click the Redbubble link at the bottom of the page for my store.
Hey I am interested in workshops and presentations, do you do that too?
Yes, RLD does this as well. To learn more you can go to past projects and see what I have done in the past. Amanda is in the process of setting up monthly classes involving painting or other items you wish to learn about. If you have something you want done please let Amanda know and she will see what is possible.
