Custom Crafted Clay Caricatures

by Lanin D. Thomasma

Since 1999

Lanin D. Thomasma creates caricatures in polymer clay, of family or friends, anime, game or historical characters. Need a one-of-a-kind gift for someone special? Like to have a companion at your desk or workspace? You supply a photo and some details (the eye color is most important), and in a few weeks, you’ll have in your hand a truly unique work.

Questions for the Artist

Q: What do your figures cost?
A: $45 per figure. Wedding cake toppers are $90. Glass display globes are available for your piece for an additional $50.

Q: What do you paint them with?
A: I don’t! My ‘N’Toonz figures are crafted entirely from colored polymer clay. That means that the brilliant colors you see will never fade or chip off!

Q:  How do I order an ‘N’TOONZ figure?
A:  All I need is a photo of the person or persons you’d like me to depict. If you want them in a specific outfit, like a team uniform or SCA or cosplay outfit, please specify that, too. One thing I do usually need, and that is the person’s eye color – that’s something that doesn’t always come out clearly in a photograph. If you have a deadline, let me know. Otherwise, please reckon with about 3 – 4 weeks from commission to delivery.
