This little Monster figure is handmade out of polymer clay. It is coated with high quality glaze to protect it from some harm and give it an octopus like shine. This figure is great to have on a desk, at work, or at home. This figure is also an excellent feature for a alien or monster themed birthday party. The figure may look slightly different than the one pictured as it is 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 mostly recycled. Thanks for looking!
