Christmas is coming and we want to help you find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. This weeks Gift Idea is our 3D Creations. I have described the process of making these beautiful works of art as follows:
My many years as a custom picture framer have allowed me close observation of hundreds of artistic creations which deepened my creative inquiry. I continually contemplated, “How could I make the artwork become more alive”. In this way the viewer could further appreciate what the artist was conveying. This intense inquiry, finally culminated in the emergence of this magical 3D perspective .
This selected image is mounted onto a 1″ – 1 1/2″ light weight high density material (not wood). After mindful study, I will feed various aspects manually through a very thin blade. (The results leave me with puzzle piece components).
Next, the sides of each cut piece are hand painted to blend in with the foreground of the selected image. After the pieces are dry I reassemble all the elements. A multi-dimensional depth of field emerges as the pieces are placed in their positions to enhance the look of the original image.
We now have a finished 3D creation with the thickness of 1 1/2″ to 2 1/2″. A specially designed shadow box is created for each 3D.
The sides of the shadow box are now painted to further enhance the 3D composition.
Now comes the final stage. The selecting of complimentary museum mats and wooden frames with a styling that is integral to the renewal of the artwork. Certificate of Authenticity Enclosed.
