Mixed media art inspired by ephemera and old photos.

Muncie, Indiana 8 Sales On Etsy since 2009

Announcement   Thank you for stopping by WatersColorStudio! A little about my art: I enjoy challenging society's notions of “happy” colors and “sad” subject matter. I use a layering method, which results in an interesting interplay of contrasting colors and guides the eye of the viewer through a playground of paint juxtaposed with photos from long ago. My goal is to achieve bold images with skewed interpretations underlined within the plane.

Many items for purchase are giclees of my artwork. Please note the details on whether you're purchasing an original mixed media painting or a giclee (high-quality, professional print.)

About my process: I purchase old photos from antique stores, flea markets, and even from other buyers on Etsy. I scan these old photos into Photoshop to manipulate the photos. Once satisfied, I print the photo onto a digital transfer substrate. Acrylic paint, gouache and ephemera are used to make the original painting.

About my listings which utilize giclees: "Giclee" is a french word describing the phrase "to spray." In other words, a high-quality, professional-grade inkjet process is printed onto archival papers. Artists generally use giclee printing to make reproductions of their original two-dimensional artwork, photographs, or computer-generated art. Professionally produced giclee prints are much more expensive than just printing something from your home computer's printer. Giclees allow the artist to follow a just-in-time business model in which giclee printing can be an economical option, since art can be printed and sold individually in accordance with demand. Giclee printing has the added advantage of allowing artists to take total control of the production of their images, including the final color correction and the substrates being used.

The items that utilize resin may have some slight imperfections. There may be bubbles or minor inconsistencies. I will do my best to point those discrepancies out for you, the potential buyer.

RUSH ORDERS
Priority Mail can be added to any order within the Unites States for $2.25 in addition to the current shipping fee. USPS Priority mail offers delivery in 1 - 3 business days if you wish to pay for priority mail service (price to be determined,) but I can not guarantee delivery.

WHEN WILL IT SHIP?
All 'ready to ship' items are shipped via USPS within 3-5 business days of receiving payment and will leave safely packaged. Why 3-5 working days? I work full-time outside of the home, and cannot always expedite my delivery to the USPS. If you need for me to "get on it," just send me a message and I'll do everything in my power to get that piece to you (additional shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.) All custom orders will ship as stated on each listing. Please be aware that USPS may experience delays from time to time, especially around any holiday time which are beyond my control so no guarantee of delivery time can be accurately promised. Please order with plenty of time for any possible delay.

WHERE'S IT GOING?
Please make sure your shipping address is filled out correctly when checking out since I will be shipping to the address on your Etsy account. I cannot be responsible for any lost items due to an incorrect address listed and cannot offer a refund if delivered to that incorrect address. If the item is returned to me then I can reship it to you but your payment of additional shipping fees will be needed first or I can refund you the cost of the item minus the shipping fees.

WHERE'S MY ORDER?
If your order tracking shows as delivered and you did not receive it:
1. Check with each member of the household to see if they received the piece.
2. Check with neighbors to see if it was left by the carrier at their home in error.
3. Contact your Post Office immediately if you do not locate the delivery.
The Post Office will be able to research delivery from their end with the tracking number I provide you and you can request to speak with your personal carrier as to where the package was delivered or where it was placed.
If the above steps do not locate your package:
4. Please contact me and advise me what you were informed by your delivery person. Include the phone number for your local Post Office. I will also contact your Post Office to report it and request to speak to your delivery person for further detail.
5. If your package is not located after steps 1-4, I will fill out USPS Stolen Mail forms. You will be need to sign an affidavit that you did not receive your order.
6. Once I receive the affidavit back from you, I will issue you a full refund including shipping or replace your order at your choice.

**Shipping costs will not be refunded when returning an item. The buyer is responsible for all shipping costs in either direction** Only exception is if the item was not as described, arrives damaged or you never receive your item. If it arrives damaged then within 7 days of receiving the item the buyer will need to provide a clear photo(s) which indicates the damage so that I can pursue the matter with USPS and refund your money.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS
* Please be aware that you will be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, VATS or other amounts levied by your home country. Please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs.
* Although I ship all 'ready to ship' items within 3-5 business days, International shipping may take 2-8 weeks to arrive since it has to clear your country's customs.
* All International orders will be marked as Merchandise or other- not as Gift. It is a Federal Crime in the US to mark the customs forms with incorrect information.
* Orders not picked up at customers postal or customs center and returned to sender will be refunded minus the shipping cost.
