My sunflower mailbox is beautiful. Looks like the paint will last for many years. Very high quality. This shop was very easy to deal with, quick to respond and offered suggestions as to the house number placement and color paint. The other thing I liked was she told me immediately when she would begin painting so I knew where I was on her schedule. No guess work. I highly recommend this shop.

If you'd like an upgraded certified mail option let me know and we can add that to your value. Artwork is backed by stiff cardboard to protect against bending, and protected from moisture by plastic. Pastels and charcoals must be framed as soon as possible under glass.

DECALS:
INDOOR DECALS:

Indoor vinyl wall decal products can be be removed safely, without leaving residues or damaging your walls. You can simply peel them off your wall by hand. This makes wall decals perfect for those who are renting a home or office, college students living in dorms, or individuals that are looking for a new and fun way to decorate their home. These small decals look perfect above light switch plates, tucked on a shelf, or above a counter top, so many places to decorate! Decals are removable but not re-applicable.

These decals are incredibly easy to apply and everyone will be asking you if you hand painted your vinyl art yourself! What could be better than that?!

These art applique's are a matte vinyl and looks very much like interior paint. They give the appearance of your art or lettering being flawlessly hand-painted on your projects and walls.

It's specifically meant for indoor use and has a repositionable water-based adhesive. This means if you gently lay it down and you need to pick it up and re-center it, you can without having ruined the entire piece. The water-based adhesive means it's easy to remove any sticky residue the vinyl leaves with just water and maybe a squirt of Windex.

The vinyl manufacturer recommends smooth, semi-gloss or gloss enamel painted walls. If possible, avoid matte finish Latex paints and paints that contain anti-graffiti agents or stain blockers. Wall graphics do not perform well when applied to zero VOC latex paint coatings. If walls have been recently painted you will need to wait 3-4 weeks to apply your vinyl art.

Wall graphics must be applied to a clean, smooth, dry and non-porous interior surface. Freshly applied paint should be allowed to cure for a minimum of three to four full weeks before wall graphic application. Vinyl applique's should be removed from packaging and stored flat at room temperature for 24 hours before application.




CUSTOM ART

Please note that all custom artwork is copyrighted by me and may not be reproduced in any way, and I retain the rights to my artwork. I want you to love your portrait so I am happy to work with you on finding the perfect photo and working with you throughout the process to obtain a masterpiece for you to enjoy for generations! I require clear photos of your pet taken in a good light.

A little bit about pastels....

Please note that once you receive the finished portrait you will need to frame it behind glass to preserve the pastel and prevent smudges. Some artists spray their pastels, I prefer not to do this with my pastel art.

About Pastel Paintings: One of the reasons pastel paintings and drawings are so beautifully unique is the quality of the pure color particles and how these catch and refract light. The pastel medium is a pure pigment. Pastel pigments are dry, held together with a small amount of binder, and come in the form of a round or square stick. These pigments are the same as those used in liquid paints, such as oils or watercolors. However, well cared for pastel art works from over 200 years ago are as fresh and brilliant as the day they were created because pastel does not discolor, fade or crack like liquid paints.
