This listing is for one single-subject silhouette.
We cut our silhouettes in the traditional style- there is no drawing, tracing, or digital alteration of the silhouettes we cut. Using only paper and scissors, we freehand cut an accurate likeness within minutes, just as artisans did in the eighteenth century.
Silhouettes make charming, unique gifts and I use the finest archival quality papers and adhesive available to ensure that they will last a lifetime.
Each silhouette will be sent to you signed by the artist, dated, and mounted on 8x10 heavy weight white card stock.
*Framed product image is for marketing purposes. Your silhouette will arrive unframed.
8x10 Freehand Cut Paper Silhouette
When you place an order, we use a photo of the subject (you or your loved one).
When taking a photograph, please follow these guidelines so that we can cut the most accurate portrait possible and refer to the example photos in our FAQ section. If you have any questions or would like an example photo, please contact us. Please send your photos via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Silhouettes & Such site contact form.
-Take a profile shot of the subject, at their eye level.
-Be sure the subject is looking straight ahead, with a relaxed expression and lips closed.
-Include the subjects full head/hair and shoulders.
*If photographing a wiggly child, we always suggest that you catch them while they are watching a video or enlist help from someone who can capture the child's attention. It'll make your job much easier!
*We are sometimes able to work with a candid photo, but please contact me before placing your order.
