I hate when you give someone a time frame that they agree to and then they want it faster. I know how hard it is to wait but the reason i give you a 2-3 week time frame is because not only is reborning not my only commitment but it also takes time to put in the amount of detail that reborns have and i use airdry and if you dont want a peeling mess or rubbed off varnish you gotta let it cure!! Ugh customs are frustrating. Especially when im not making a profit (Charged her only for supplies) and havent even had enough time to finish painting let alone varnish and everything!
Sorry for the rant but you guys are the only ones that get it lol.
Gee you need to be making a profit for all your work and frustration. I would not let whomever rush you any more and just tell them they will get it when they will get it and not before. I doubt they will find anyone else to do it for them at cost.
I had to stop making dolls for people in my real life (usually friends of friends) because they always thought they deserved a discount and were very pushy. I only make customs for repeat customers now
I just tell custom requests that I don’t do custom babies because there is too much opportunity for disappointment. I have painted specific kits for repeat customers, but only if it is a kit I like. I can’t do quality work on a kit I am not in love with…
this is the way I work the pricing as well and it cuts out a lot of riff raff!
I also only offer them on a kit I have in stock and will not special order one. That way I am not stuck doing a kit I don’t like or did not intend to do if I get left having to sell it.
People are getting more em patient these a days… they seem to want more for less and special treatment . I saw a eBay or an Etsy for a reborn doll pregnancy surprise package. Takes 9 months and I can’t remember if they offered a half way point gender reveal. Very clever but I can’t imagine very popular because of the time frame
