Who knows a good source for good quality custom tormas?

Thank you, but I need someone who can do a particular torma.

Magnus,

Phil Karl's tormas look great, but it's not clear he can/will do anything but Karma Kagyud. If you have pics of the torma(s), you might try Minling Gyurmey. He is a Tibetan artist living in Santa Fe, NM trained at Mindroling. He made several Yuthok Nyingthig tormas for me from pics I supplied. He's on Facebook. When I just checked his page, it looks like he visits about once per week.

Here's a link to his FB page: https://www.facebook.com/gyurmer

If you're used to making torma out of dough, you might also give it a shot yourself using products such as Model Magic and Sclupey. I have. Maybe not as beautiful as Minling Gyurmey's but serviceable nonetheless.

Cool to see that there's more alternatives out there.

It used to be that tormas were food offerings
