Finely crafted hand cut illustrations to capture each member of the family in minature paper form, hand made to order by Laura Sayers.
For the family that can't managed a sensible group photo, get a miniature paper portrait of them instead! With bright colours, clean shapes and neat details all made out of paper, these tiny little versions of the people closest to you will be treasured for a long time to come. Carefully designed and hand cut by Laura in her Glasgow home, each piece takes time and patience and is all done with a simple pair of scissors. The novelty of being able to hold a final illustration in your hands as well as the detail and care put into in every layer make these portraits truly special and completely unique.
Simply upload a high quality photo to your order enquiry of each person you'd like to have illustrated, preferably from side on, after you've placed your order. There will also be an opportunity to specify any colours you'd like to be included for clothing and any other special details.
Coloured paper by Canford, Maya and Murano, smallest details painted in gouache paint, assembled with strong glue using a pin for maximum neatness and minimum visibility. Pieces are delicate but can be handled carefully, the strong glue typically provides a lasting hold. *PLEASE NOTE* FRAME NOT INCLUDED. Unfortunately a frame isn't included in the order, but gold metal hanging frames work perfectly for the pieces, which can be easily purchased from shops such as Oliver Bonas or stockists of Nukuku frames for under £10.
Size varies but each individual person is typically made at 2" high. Please specify in your enquiry if you'd like your piece made to a certain size or to fit a specific frame.
