Finely crafted hand cut illustrations to capture the couple of the year in minature paper form, hand made to order by Laura Sayers.
For the bride and groom or the couple who have everything, why no get them a miniature paper portrait of themselves to remember this special time for ever! 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 London 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.
After you've placed your order I'll be in touch shortly to ask you a few questions about the specifics of your paper piece. Simply upload at least one good quality photo to your order enquiry of the couple you'd like to have illustrated, preferably from side on but a mug shot works too, and I'll do my best to get a good likeness. This will also be an opportunity to specify any colours you'd like to be included for clothing, or any other special details - no details are too small!
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. 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.
