This is an original silhouette papercut of a Mosquito, not a print.
Each picture is hand-cut by myself (John Speight) using a scalpel and is then mounted onto watercolour paper that has been airbrushed with a precise mixture of three acrylic inks. The pictures are supplied unframed and in a hand-signed mount. (Picture display props in the photographs are not included).
The designs are replicated but as each picture is individually cut there are small differences that make each an original artwork.
The size of the papercut is approximately 86mm x 59mm.
The outside of the mount is approximately 180mm x 160mm.
The silhouette comes packaged with a backing board in a clear polypropylene bag, and a sticker is enclosed saying that it is a hand-cut silhouette, cut with a scalpel by John Speight. The sticker is for sticking on the back of the frame after framing.
Also enclosed is a flyer entitled "About Your Silhouette" which explains how the papercut is made and tells a little about my family's papercutting history. I come from a family that has nearly a century of papercutting experience. Beginning with my Grandfather in 1921 I'm now the third generation to papercut and I have been a professional cutter since 1990.
I normally dispatch pictures within five working days.
