You can choose the size you want and pay for the range of sizes that is closest to the size you want. Krista uses canvases, drawing paper, and art supplies from Michael's, Dick Blick, Hobby Lobby, and Jerry's Artarama. You can choose what you want Krista to buy for your project, if you wish to make requests.
Krista can create your custom masterpiece in her Impressionism, Cubanism, Americana, Abstract, etc. style, if you want to request a certain style.
Krista's own style is abstract realism, so by default, every style comes out with a bit of Krista's spin on it.

Notes on ordering custom a cake topper: The diameter of the cake topper should be no more than that the cake itself. Efforts are made to make custom cake toppers less heavy, but it you will also get some cake support tools with your order.
(It is recommended that the cake topper is supported by dowels (cookie or lollipop sticks or wooden craft dowels and then the wedding cake topper rests on a cake circle which is held up strongly by the dowels. These tools will need to fit the cake.)
OVERALL COST PER HOUR
Pricing for average art projects are charged at an hourly rate of $75 per hour. The prices listed here are to offer a general idea of pricing. The client establishes their own pricing based on their requests for the scope of work, changes, and approvals. All quotes include everything.
If the client stays within the scope and guidelines of the project, then pricing will never change. If a client makes changes that take more time than initially agreed upon, then the pricing must also change to pay for the time it takes to do that work. Shipping costs extra.
Shipping and handling (which includes protecting your masterpiece) pricing is not marked up from the actual costs the shipping company charges. Pricing is not negotiable. All pricing is estimated.
