This item is for one hand cut silhouette in the traditional method passed down since the 1800's. For this particular silhouette, I will hand cut first, email a proof for your approval of the image. then, I will hand paint details using gold paint. This is an excellent way to elaborate detail in the image while still maintaining the integrity of the art itself. Gold embellishing was often done in the 1800's and I like to offer it to customers who not only love this age old art form, but also want to take it to the next level. I paint portraits and illustrate so adding details is not guess work for me - it's allowing me to use my talents to make your piece more even valuable, unique and cherished. (As with all my silhouettes, you will receive 2, both hand cut, both painted, one facing left, one facing right)

This will be based on photos you can email to me at reachpatti [!at] Please include your Etsy ID in the subject bar so I'll know it's you. If you'd like tips on taking photos for this, you can refer to a page on my website at this link:

The frame shown is not included. It is available for an additional $18.00 if you like. Just let me know when you contact me.

This method of embellishment is ideal for showing off details in a dress or wedding gown or little boy's sailor suit, smocking in a shirt, jewelry... I also can do this for pets too!
