Before an Ever-After Portrait is ready for your home, it goes
through five distinct steps. Many claim their products to be bespoke or unique, an Ever-After portrait really is!
The process naturally begins with the child...
Step one - Scanning
Using Photoshop, I carefully scan the photograph of your child and their drawings onto my Mac. You can also email me the photo, but it must be good quality.
I then place everything you've supplied in a sturdy folder for safekeeping.
Step Two - Designing
This is the best bit! Working from digital files allows me to move elements around on the screen, play with scale, repetition, alter colours or even add colour to grey pencil drawings. I can discuss colours with you if you have a specific place in your home for your Ever-After Portrait.
Step Three- Printing
Once everything is approved, the scene is printed onto high-quality
watercolour paper using an Epson printer that can handle up to 44"/1100mm wide and any length.
The inks we use are very high quality and do not fade.
Any embellishments, such as fine glitter are added after this point.
