This is fantastic and so well made. It has very magical energies. Arrived quickly considering the distance it had to travel. Well packaged too. Fab shop, thank you 💗

I actually got this about a week ago and wanted to see how they felt wearing them out. They were great.:D Gill really put a lot of work into them with the amazing attention to detail from socket to nose. And while I would have liked to have had the aged version, the job I have is super picky about jewelry that stands out too much. 😑 So I was glad that there was a subtle version that would allow me to wear these guys everyday at work. I definitely recommend his products to anyone looking for a unique accessories. ;3

thanks for dropping by!

i'm a digital illustrator/animator/designer by day and turn to more analogue creative pursuits in my spare time.

all of the new paper stocks i use are made with a high percentage of recycled content. i also like to experiment with what i find in second-hand stores and flea markets. no books are harmed in my process - i only use books that can no longer be used as books.

pieces are priced according to:
1. size of the model: the smaller something is the more difficult it is to fold
2. cost of the paper varies greatly - bronzed paper is $20 a sheet!
3. cost of the findings: i use a mixture of precious and base metal findings

this is why the same model may sell for a variety of different prices.

all items are handcrafted using high quality materials and made to order however, slight imperfections may occur from time to time. that's what makes it unique!

Payment
preferred payment is via paypal or direct payment. for locals, i'm happy to make other arrangements such as direct deposit into my bank account or drop-off/pick-up.

please make your payment within 3 days of ordering.
Shipping
i ship via AustPost within 3 working days of receiving your payment.

estimated time for deliveries within australia can be up to 5 working days, depending your location. for overseas deliveries, the estimated time is anywhere between 5 - 21 days.

i'm happy to organise express post or registered mail - please email or convo me to arrange this.

all items are as squish-proofed as possible with bubble-wrap [origami] or cardboard [prints].

i can't foresee any problems with customs due to the materials used. however, please check your local customs laws if there is any doubt. i can't be responsible for charges due to international customs regulations.
Refunds and Exchanges
all items are extremely well tested for durability under normal usage and have been sold at craft markets over the last five years. prints and photographs have not only been tested by prolonged sun-exposure, but have also been hand-varnished using a UV-stabilising varnish.

all origami items have been coated with 3-4 layers of epoxy varnish which makes them quite durable and prevents fading.
it also makes them waterproof. items have gone thru the washing machine by accident or earrings worn swimming or in the shower - all survived perfectly intact.

if you item does become damaged outside of reasonable wear and tear, please contact me. i may be able to repair the damage.
Additional policies and FAQs

i'm more than happy to create custom orders. just convo or mail me: gill [!at] catamation.com
