This merman figure is handmade out of polymer clay. The figure is great for topping cupcakes or decorating your house! The figure is coated with a high quality glaze to increase its durability and make it shine. The figure you receive may look slightly different than pictured as it made to order. Please allow 5-7 days creation time before shipment. I ship with the United States Postal Service (USPS), First Class shipping. My shipping materials are primarily recycled. Thanks for looking!
