That's Great! Thanks Jesse321!

What do you think about starting some kind of Creations n' Chrome preffered customer membership?

Let me know what you think?

Welcome Gary!
We've seen your work posted over the year. Very nice stuff!

Gary, how would you go about chroming the Sideshow Silver Surfer comiquette?
It comes in a number of pieces and the base is more elaborate than the standard Bowen piece.

Welcome Gary,
I have been wanting to get my action Silver Surfer chromed. Just wasn't sure about how the process works. Do people just mail their stuff in? What's the turnaround time for something like that?

That is a tough one. I have not seen it in person. Looks like the board and base are glued together.

It would take a lot of time to protect the pieces that we don't want chrome. So the price could be double that of a Bowen action S.S.

Send me some detailed pics. gary@creationsnchrome.com

Yes, mail your Surfer in his box to keep him safe. We take good care of his box. Make sure to wrap the box and place it in a larger box for shipping. After painting I like to let the statues sit for a few days before I put them back in the box. This allows them to dry properly. Turnaround is 2 weeks in most cases.
