Either design can be cut from white paper OR black silhouette paper.

A white paper cutting is best matted on a dark color background.  Popular choices are navy blue, evergreen, black wine, etc. I use acid free Canson Mi-Tientes Paper.  If you have an art supply store near where you live, you could visit and see the selection of Canson papers and specify a particular color.

A black paper cutting is matted on a white back mat.

Top mats are usually white.  A second 1/4" mat in a contrasting color under the top mat can be added for an additional charge.

*Frame choices are cherry (2 styles); all black, black w/antique gold inner lip, and gold. I'll be happy to email you a picture of the frame choices.

Silhouette Portraits

NEW! I will cut Silhouette Portraits in person (with an appointment in my studio or at selected shows - see my exhibition list) or from a photograph

$35 for 2 copies mounted on 5"x 7" acid-free mat board.

Traditional Silhouette Frames now available! 

I have just found beautiful imported OVAL all-wood 5"x 7" black frames with gold inner lip. They are $40 each.
