Well that's a different kettle of fish entirely from just glazing or painting, since it actually involves modifying the ocarina itself. It would probably be a lot more expensive too.
A minor mod would be just adding the collar to the mouthpiece, major would involve remodelling the whole oc so it would have the 'torpedo' shape of the OoT....
If Focalink ever made a Zelda oc, they'd make a killing though :D

All you can do is email Zack Shih and see what he says! Best of luck!

Hey DeepRed I was just wondering, that wolf ocarina was a christmas present for your sister right? So did she like it or what? I'd imagine she did but just askin anyways.

Well that's good to hear. And another member joining TON can't hurt either!

Wow, I love the cherry blossom pendant. I've been thinking about having a custom pendant with my cat painted on it. He hangs out with me when I play ocarina, so it seems appropriate. Can the Focalink artists use a photograph to replicate a design, or would I need to draw a picture of him?

When I placed my order, I gave Mr. Shih a picture I found on the web and asked if he could paint it onto my ocarina. Mr. Shih warned me that he couldn't make it as vivid or detailed as the photo, but I think it came out quite well. I don't have a file hosting account, and I don't know the code to put the pictures into a spoiler tag, so I attached the photo of my ocarina and the picture the design is based on to the post. And yes, I did ask him to change the color.

Is it the cat on your avatar? That would be pretty cool if it was lol. That flower oc looks pretty nice, I was thinking about getting a custom painted oc but I think I'd prefer some sort of basic oc instead, much like the one I already have, which saves my some cash eh? lol

Where is the photo of your ocarina? I'd love to see it, but I only see the photo of the flower attached to your post.

Sorry, I think the photo was too large. I played with the image a bit, so it should be within the size limit now.
