  • What kind of clay do you use?
    I use almost exclusively Sculpey Premo and Premo Accents. Occasionally I'll mix in Sculpey Souffle or Kato for different colors and needs.
  • How long have you been making dragons?
    I started making dragons in November of 2017.
  • Do you accept custom requests?
    I do! You can email me at ayslyns.aviary@gmail.com.
  • Can you recreate a dragon if someone else got it before me?
    I can! Each dragon is hand sculpted so no two are completely alike. There will be minute differences, but in most cases I'm able to re-create originals upon request.
  • How do you price your creations?
    My dragon hatchlings and eggs are priced based on a number of factors including the level of details, props, florishes, materials, hours of creation and the level of experience and expertise applied to creating. I do my best to price each dragon and egg fairly and competitively for the level of attention to detail, care and love that goes into each.
  • Why do each of your shop updates have so few dragons now?
    When I first started sculpting I could easily get 15-20 dragons in one shop update - now though, I have a little one and I'm juggling a lot of life outside of the studio so the updates are a little smaller.
  • Do you ship internationally?
    Yes, though there are a few countries we currently can't ship to. If you're international and want to know for sure whether we can ship to you, please send an email before checking out!
  • My dragon arrived damaged! What do I do?!
    We do our best to make each dragon as sturdy as possible, and to ship each with as much protection as is practical. Despite our efforts, sometimes breaks and damage still happen, and while we can't be held responsible for damage that happens in transit, we will certainly try our best to meet the original expectation either through repairs or replacements. If your dragon or egg arrives damaged please let us know, and we can either instruct you on repairs or see about an exchange. Each case is unique - talk to us and we'll make sure you're satisfied with your adoption.

In keeping with our commitment to community, we want to reassure our customers that Ayslyn's Aviary is doing our part to stay healthy and slow the spread. Hands are washed and a mask is worn for each box packing, and no one in our household is sick. Keeping us and you healthy is a very real concern of ours right now so if one of us does become ill despite our precautions, shipping will be suspended for an appropriate window of time.  Please note also because of the general chaos COVID-19 has created, some domestic shipments may experience delays that are outside of our control, and international shipping is now on a case-by-case basis.   If you have any questions or concerns about our pandemic precautions and procedures please feel free to reach out and we'll be happy to provide what information we can. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding during this time!

Shipping 

Please ensure that all of your information - including your address and the dragon(s) you're adopting - are correct BEFORE completing your order.   Please allow one two to three weeks for the creation of your custom dragon and/or egg. Shipping will be through USPS unless otherwise requested; tracking numbers will be provided when available. If your dragon is delayed for some unforeseen reason, we will let you know.

Returns & Exchanges 

At this time, we accept returns and exchanges only in the instance of creations that are damaged upon arrival. We do our best to make each dragon as sturdy as possible, and to ship each with as much protection as is practical. If your dragon or egg arrives damaged please let us know, and we can either instruct you on repairs or see about an exchange. Buyers will be responsible for shipping back to Ayslyn's Aviary, and in most cases, we will cover shipping back out.

Cancellations & Alterations 

Cancellations and refunds can be made within 24 hours of purchase.  Please provide all relevant details regarding your custom dragon up front. Requesting changes to already finalized details may result in an upcharge.

International Shipments

We understand that international shipping can be expensive - that's why we offer a flat international fee and cover the rest. This is already reflected at checkout when you enter your country. Please note that customers are still responsible for all duties and customs fees the package incurs as it travels.
