The MEPSA body box has been a success. We have many very nice bodies available! Now, we need artists willing to finish one for MEPSA. We can even provide postage back and forth if needed. We may be able to do the prep work before sending the body to you. We have no restrictions on how you choose to finish the piece. Simple customs are fine, as is more complex work. Colors are wide open- even decorators. All we ask is that your work be proven quality, and you can get it back to us in a stated time frame. Please contact Laurel at with requests for a body, a list of available bodies or general questions.
