Description

What a great tradition! Hand cut full figure silhouette of your child(ren), pet(s), spouse, friend, or yourself. (Also called a cameo or shadow portrait by some.) The silhouette itself is hand cut from french silhouette paper using german surgical scissors and several years experience as a portrait artist. I go for detail and accuracy as well as a pleasing design overall. Since I am a mother of 3, I approach this form of portraiture with passion and heart.

All you have to do is send me a few photographs of the subject holding their favorite toy or blowing bubbles etc. either by e-mail or snail mail. Have the subject stand at a perfect 90º angle to the camera as if you are taking a picture of their ear. Allow lips to close together in a relaxed position (no smiling).

I mount full figure silhouettes onto at least an 8x10" acid free bristol board for one to three subjects but often move up town 11x14" scene depending on the composition.

Upon approval, I will ship to the address associated with your payment and it should arrive in one to two weeks depending on your location and the time of year. Let me know if you need to rush the order and I can rearrange the cue for a $10 fee.

If your pictures are too big to send through Etsy, just send to my email at Patti @ Heart Paper Scissors dot come WITH YOUR ETSY ID NAME (please) in the subject to keep things simple. (Thanks)

Once your silhouette is complete, we can make lovely pendants and ornaments and all kinds of gift items featuring those silhouettes.

I received the silhouette of my nephew today and it is PERFECT. I can't wait to get a frame for this and give it to my sister as a Christmas gift. The detail of the silhouette and the name written in cursive is just beautiful! I am so glad I found Patti's shop and decided to order. Patti was great to work with and I received the silhouette very quickly! Thank you thank you!

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I will accept PAYPAL or major credit cards (VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS, DISCOVER), money order, or even a personal check - but I will have to make sure the check clears before delivering your order.

Returns & exchanges

If it ever becomes necessary to make a return for a general item for some reason, I'll do it.

Personalized items cannot be returned but I always email a proof to get customer's approval. If you need to cancel an order for some reason, as long as I haven't shipped it, that is possible.

Shipping policies

The shipping cost is to cover the amount I pay in both shipping materials and fees. I ship regular US mail or Priority Mail once a week usually but I'll make the extra trip when meeting a deadline for you.

Additional policies

The items I create or print from my art are all handmade. Therefore, there may be slight differences if you compare one to another. These slight variations add to the charm of the pieces and therefore are not necessarily categorized as defective.
