Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the price of an unpainted Chichi® (during the work-shop) the same as a painted Chichi® from the shop?
The workshop will take 2 hours, including the story of the emergence of Serena’s Art Factory; an explanation of painting techniques; use of the workshop facilitations, paint and brushes; painting in beautiful setting. At the end of the workshop all painted Chichi’s® will get a the finishing touch by Serena’s Art Factory which includes, a quality control, felt placed under the Chichi®, a label attached, a Trademark sign® and Serena’s signature (In case Serena is not available the manager in charge will sign the Chichi®). The sculptures will be wrapped in a nice box for a happy and save transportation.
Why do we not sell & ship Chichi® sculptures to other countries?
It is very expensive to send a Chichi® sculpture to another country. The package has to be insured and import taxes will be added, which will probably triple the price of the Chichi® you ordered.
