  • How much money is required up front on a model painting commission?
    A $25 deposit will be required to start a commission. The balance will be due before I can send your completed piece to you. I will keep you updated throughout the process.
  • How long does it take to do a model painting commission?
    That is difficult to say before knowing what you want done and in which medium you want it done in. Many things will determine the time, i.e., finding a model, technique used, amount of hand finishing required, medium used, etc. I will be happy to talk to you about the process in detail. You can contact me from this site, from Instant Messenger and by email :
  • Can I use one of my own models for a model painting commission?
    Yes! You can absolutely send me a model you already own. I will have to have it in my hands in order to give you an exact cost of your project but since I won't have to buy you a model, you will save money!
  • Do you custom paint China and Porcelain?
    Yes, I can paint China and Porcelain that is fired. It does require a more specialized prepping process.
  • Can I make payments on a model painting commission? on a sales piece?
    Contact me first for approval but then... Absolutely! On commissions, I will not begin your project until I have received $25. You can then continue with payments up until I let you know the piece is completed, at which point the balance will be due in full within 60 days from completion of project. On sales pieces the total balance due must be paid within 60 days. I will send you a PayPal invoice that will allow payments, once you are approved for payments.
  • Do you do any re-sculpting customization?
    Yes, some. Generally I will do, manes, forelocks and tails, also light feature enhancements, broken leg or ear repair, etc. I do not do extreme modifications usually. Feel free to contact me so I can discuss your plans with you.
  • What happens if I don't finish paying for the model?
    Unfortunately, after 60 days your sales piece item will be put back up for sale and any payments you've made to that point will be forfeited by you. On commissions, the piece will either be destroyed or sold by me as a sales piece at my discretion. I too have bills to pay and just the supplies to do the pieces are very costly!
  • Do you buy model bodies for painting? If so, how much do you pay?
    Yes, I do. Contact me because some models I just have too many of currently, so I might not want to purchase any more; other models may be more desirable, so I might pay more for them. I pay in cash or credit towards a sales piece or commission. Generally I pay, per model: Traditionals - $10, Classics - $5, Stablemates - $1
  • Do you have any references?
    Yes, I am well known in the hobby. You can find me on Facebook on the Model Horse Transaction pages, by simply typing my name, Jody Jones in the search line of that Group page. You can also find me on MH$, Model Horse Place, Equine Resin Directory Also, I have 100% positive feedback on eBay. Find me by searching "JJSOJOURN" or by using this link:
  • Do you sell models on commission?
    Yes, I do. The model's value will have to be established and agreed upon and I must have the model in hand since I would be responsible for all shipping and guarantees. Once I receive the model, I will list it and provide professional pictures for the listing. If the model is not as you described, I will return it to you or discuss other options with you.
