Note from shop owner Spring has Sprung...in some parts of the country anyway...sooo here's the QUEUE at last! CERTIFICATE DRAGONS QUEUE 2015 IS UP ON MY POLICIES PAGE!: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CedarMoon/policy

Thank you so much. I really value my patient, understanding customers)
It has been a weather dependent winter for Flamingo Incognito since several devastating wicked NorthWet wind storms (Seattle area) managed to destroy my spray paint area, interrupt electricity (and internet) and ripped shingles off my home causing major water damage repairs.

I've been out of my home for over 5 weeks and commuting to my home studio...which is very weird. With the weather settling, I'm running between raindrops to finish painting and finishing all the flamingos in the next couple weeks.
________

Flamingo Incognitos are handcrafted, garden/yard art sculptures made from up-cycled and recycled, pink plastic flamingos. You know the kind you saw in grandma's yard or in front of vacation trailers in the fifties. Not retro anymore, they are guaranteed to make friends look twice!

All the Flamingo Incognitos are handmade by me when ordered and completed in the order purchased to be fair to everyone. I will have a queue list on my policies page starting in February to keep you posted on the progress of your flamingo. Always include your certificate number when you contact me

WHAT’S UNDERNEATH IT ALL:
Other than the basic pink flamingo beneath it all there is household plastic leftovers, post consumer recycled plastics, artfully sculpted aluminum foil, industrial strength tapes, waterproof glues, objects d’art from the studio junk drawer, creative theatrical use of outdoor-friendly, quality spray paint and large doses of imagination. The speckling is not glitter but a theater trick of speckling with paints (OK, ok…some dragons have glitter “snot” to represent fire-breathing).

These birdies have been tested in the Pacific Northwest weather (rain). They come with separate metal legs. They are art pieces, not toys and not meant for children to play with. Although weather and UV resistant, they are also not intended to survive really severe, outdoor weather. Since they are, after all, tropical birds down deep, it is also suggested that they be kept warm and dry during cold stormy weather.

Care has been made to make sure colors do not fade (a UV coating) but it is not guaranteed due to the variety of parts and paints used and severe weather conditions. They are not tornado, hurricanes, tsunami, earthquake toddler or small dog resistant. Rough handling may cause cracks in the paint and substructure that could introduce water, which may lead to some paint peeling. Remember these are up-cycled, recycled and only ‘water resistant’. Think of them like a rainbow or a soap bubble; fun and pretty while they last but they don’t last forever … except in stories.

DO YOU MAKE CUSTOM FLAMINGOS?
Yes, Custom Flamingo Incognitos are also available and price depends on how complex your imagination is; let’s talk. You can convo me here or contact me through my regular email at: katyahiggins [!at] gmail.com.

HOW BIG ARE THEY?
On their metal legs he stands about 32 inches high. Diagonally from tail to snout is approx. 24 inches. Height from top head to bottom of tail (vertical) they are is about 18 inches. If you were to lay him down and measure his thickness, he would be about 6 inches thick. You can slightly adjust the wings (if they have wings) slightly to bend outwards so he can fly after you take him out of the box...but I haven't had any of them fly away yet.

Additional policies and FAQs
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS, TAXES and IMPORT DUTIES;
Shoppers are advised that international transactions may incur import duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. These costs may be payable to the carrier either before or at the point of delivery and are the responsibility of the buyer.

If these additional costs are critical to the decision to purchase, shoppers are advised to visit their own country's online government resources for further information on this topic. A note to UK buyers, I understand this gets tricky for you with custom fees and VATs so you need to check it out before ordering.

SHOP HOURS
(Shop is open 24/7 but these are times we check emails and fill orders)
Monday - Friday: 9:30am to 4:00pm (CST)
Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED but I will still take orders
We often reply to emails during evening hours, and select weekends.
Check back often because stock changes with the season.

CUSTOM ORDERS (designed from scratch)
Custom identity crisis flamingos are also available and price depends on how complex your imagination is; let’s talk. How about wedding birds, school mascots, a replica of great aunt Suzie, your boss, a Harry Potter interpretation, your pet pug or a wizard of OZ? Anything is possible, however please do not request copyrighted characters.

Unique customized Flamingos start at $85 and vary depending on complexity of your design or needs. We’ll talk this over extensively before starting. Sorry there is no discount for multiples since these are made one at a time. Contact me at katyahiggins [at] gmail.com , subject: Customized Flamingo Incognito.

Also if you have an idea or see a design you like, but would prefer it in another color scheme, most anything is possible. Send me a mail and I´ll get back to you with a completion date and a price change (if any).
